"A smaller size and body weight means they can move easier." Which adjective modifies "weight" : is it "smaller" or "body"?​

It's poorly written. Where did you find it?

:up: Perhaps birgit33 might think about why. ;-)
(The first problem is the one that made you post the question. But there are others.)

Both "body" and "smaller" modify "weight." Or you can consider "body weight" to be a compound noun.
