I couldnt find a basic thing such as this in the faqs, so I figured I would ask. The weight lifting is bad for joints myth, is it true to a certain extent? To tell the truth you see, Ive hardly ever been in a gym in my life, I dont have experience. I just mainly do bodyweight exercises with high repetitions, but since Im 170 pounds and 6feet, I figured it would be better if I would start lifting weights, to get a bit stronger and bigger. You could take this as my beggining. Problem is I have very weak joints, and have had some injuries with them ( knee joints in particular), I guess weight lifting will only help me, and make the joints stronger if I dont take it too hard in the beggining, but I thought I would ask, just to be sure - Is weight lifting overall bad for joints? I know it is relevant, so Ill say it this way -can it be bad for the joints, even if you train correctly, when joints are my weak side? Ill only be happy if it is not a problem.
