What is the best workout with weights?
There is no single workout that is considered the “best”. A combination of different exercises is considered to be the most effective, as it allows you to target specific muscle groups.
For beginners, it is advisable to start with less intense workouts. This includes walking, jogging, cycling and cardio-based workouts such as star jumps and knee highs.
For more advanced workouts, you can incorporate weight training and/or HIIT (high-intensity interval training) to lose weight and build muscle more effectively.
The key is to slowly upscale the intensity of your workouts and understand your limitations to push past them when you can.

Can you build muscle with 2kg weights?
While light weights are easier to lift, it does not mean that you will build less muscle than lifting heavier weights. Depending on how well you can maintain your reps, you can achieve similar results to building muscle when using lighter weights.
Working to fatigue your muscles with light weights can increase maximal strength. As long as you maintain and increase your reps when working with lighter weights, your muscles will receive great results.
How long should I exercise?
The length of exercise per day highly depends on your level of fitness. Some prefer to spend 1 - 2 hours while some spend more. In general, 30 minutes is a moderate but effective time for physical exercise.
Some factors can affect this. Think about the type of goal you want to achieve - for example, if you want to lose weight, it’s ideal for you to spend a little longer exercising as it takes longer to lose weight or maintain weight loss.
What weight exercises can I do at home?
There are a variety of exercises you can do at home that target different muscles. The only exception to home workouts is those that are equipment-supported. So unless you have treadmills or exercise bikes, you may be limited in doing those types of exercises at home.
For beginners, start with lighter workouts and lighter weights. With lighter weights, it’s much easier to do more reps - so, aim for 15-16 reps on what exercise you choose to do.
For more advanced exercises, you can try heavier weights and more intense workouts. Because these are heavier, it’s advisable to do fewer reps (in the range of 8 - 12).
