I have been lifting weights over the last year and a half and I love it. Unfortunately I have had medical problems related to chronic inflammation/joint pain (possibly early arthritis, I am only 28!). As a result I have had to give up lifting weights. I was using the 5 by 5 starting strength program as well as 5-3-1. My core movements before becoming injured were squats, deadlifts, and bench press. I really want to get back into lifting weights as I really enjoyed it (and I also have a year membership that is paid for at my local gym....). Can anyone recommend a weight lifting program or even just individual exercises that is/are easy on the joints. I have particular problems with my wrists and feet. Presumably with the increased interest in physical fitness especially amongst older people someone has created a program that is not as hard on the joints. Has anyone come across a program like this? My goals are still to increase strength and size.
