The Best advise I can give you is the following.....

Go to google
Type in "how to build muscles" 
Pick any site
Then open a new Google site
Now type "how to build muscles fore women"
Pick any site

If your low on time, just go for the sites ment fore women :)

eat chicken every day followed up with a potato or some carb. eat steak three times a week, take creatine from GNC and drink two protein shakes every day. workout with only free weights. imagine you are arnold swartzeneggar and lift till u pass out! as she said earlier heavy weight low reps. good luck

Extreme Plank Pyramid Challenge

Back, Biceps & Forearm Circuit Prescott 2

Absolute Arms Prescott 2

Here are a few that I like.  I have increased my muscle by increasing my DB weight (I use 15 # now).  Good luck.  Increase, increase, increase....challenge yourself & you will get there!!!!  I always tell my class that your DB should be heaiver than your purse!!!!!!!  :)

If your lifting to build muscle u need about 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight...get the protein from chicken,eggs and fish. :-)
