    Best type of training for avoiding joint injury?


    I started getting shoulder pains last fall. I am old, 51 years old.

    Does anyone have an opinion as to what is the best type of training to preserve my joints?

    I am trying to decide between high weight, low volume, and lower weight, higher volume.

    I usually work out 3 days a week with a push, pull, legs/abs type split. I was doing about 6 exercise x 3 sets for easch session. Usually 8-12 reps.

    I finally got injured when I kept increasing my weights, keeping all other parameters the same.

    Suggestions?

    in my opinion there is no better one, using less weight means more reps which (1. doesn't work well at all in my opinion) and 2. still puts a lot of stress on the joint

    i got a 3rd degree shoulder separation while playing rugby in college and it still bothers the hell outta me, so i just take joint supps and live with the minor pain while lifting as heavy as i possibly can
