Resistance exercise.: Go slow initially, if new to this. Some sporting activities such as cycling will put \quite a bit of muscle on legs, so you will need a combination of upper and lower extremity training. I like dumbells and machines for initially workouts to avoid injury. Push ups, sit ups, and a variety can help you meet your exercise goal.

Multiple muscles: A weight training program for women does not necessarily have to be significantly different than that for men. I favor exercises that work multiple muscle groups rather than isolated muscles - for example, push-ups, rows, lat pull-downs, and exercises using a cable system. In general, these types of workouts will give you more functional benefits. ...Read more
