Many times when a woman seems out of proportion, with a heavier bottom half, it is because she lacks upper body development.
I have found, in my weight training business, a shocking lack of upper body development in women. In general it is, across the board, and not dependent on age.
Many women cannot perform one push up and most cannot perform even one pull up!
Women need upper body strength to function effectively in everyday life. You need to carry things, pick up your kids, perform you job and be self reliant.
If you develop your upper body, not only will you have a more pleasing appearance but most important of all, you will be more capable of meeting the demands of work and family.
All you need to get started is a set of dumbbells. Start with a size that feels heavy but that you are able to push up from you shoulders to overhead, usually 8-10 lb. to start.
If you are working out at a gym they will have various sizes. If you are working out at home you can buy heavier sets as you make progress.
