Since you mention your weight, I'm going to assume that's the primary stressor of your joints (and not, say, repetition, or high velocity movement, like with tendon/ligament conditions). Others have mentioned swimming, which takes the weight off your joints and is an excellent option. There is another option, which works just as well - do cardio without ...

Step Away From the Weights, Sir. Seriously, if you're injury prone, I will not recommend you near any weights at the moment. Being safe is a whole lot better than being in the hospital for weights-related injuries. I will recommend bodyweight exercises, yoga or pilates (for balance and stretching purposes), swimming (if available), and cardio ...

The best way to overcome being fragile is through constant practice. Simply by bearing through painful exercises for a short period of time can build resistance. By gaining more and more resistance, you can endure longer. Never do an exercise that causes pain for extended periods of time. If it hurts, bear a few seconds longer, then rest a few minutes, ...

Inzer, APT, Titan, Overkill - basically any powerlifting company manufactures a set as well as just about every new comer into the apparel industry these days. I use Overkill now and they're the best quality I've found by far. But before Overkill came along I used a set of APT Convicts which will probably be ...
