In brief: Exercise

There are specific exercises that improve upper body strength, like push-ups, and several that can done with weights (whether fancy ones or improvised ones at home).
Women don't have as much upper body strength as men, but it can be greatly improved with targeted exercise. Ask a trainer at a gym. or read on book on weight-lifting. Best results come with doing the exercises every other day.
