Trainer's tips

• Walk for 5-10 minutes in a fast pace for warm up

• To avoid injuries, begin with light weights

• Follow the "Less is more" principle. Try 2-3 weight-training exercises for each body part; wrap up in one-and-a-half hour at the most

• Count three as you raise weights, hold for some seconds, count three as you lower. Repeat each exercise 8-12 times in a set. Do 2-3 sets of each

• Pay attention to your breathing. When you work out against resistance, such as lifting weight, push or pull, breathe out

• Cool down with some stretching
