Re: What Exercise Would Be Beneficial For 300lb Man?
I think at his weight, some light cardio would be good. Maybe walking for 1/2 hour a day and just increasing the time or adding ankle/wrist weights over time. But I'd definately consult with his doctor first before he undergoes any type of exercise regime.
My mother too is grossly obese and she will most likely die of a weight related illness. She already developed diebetes from being overweight and now just learned she has osteoarthiritus in her knees due to the burden on her joints from the weight (which means she can't really work out now because of the pain/discomfort)
You're lucky that your brother in law is willing to do something about it, my mother just seems completely unwilling to do anything about her health (and she's only about 53)
