Weight Lifting

Weights you hold in your hands can be used for upper-body exercises. You can also find weights that can be strapped to your ankles for lower-body exercises. Free weights come in a variety of sizes, from as light as one pound on up, so you can start out slowly and gradually increase the weight as your strength increases.
