Best weight program for a 40 year old?

I think I’m getting old. After years of activity my injuries are starting to build up. I have now had three knee surgeries, a shoulder surgery, a torn tendon in my foot and I currently have tendinitis in both my elbows. I got the tendinitis doing a set of bench presses with what was for me a heavy weight.

Consequently, I have decided to change my goals. I want to find a weight program that will work my entire body, will not cause injury or break me down and will allow me to remain active throughout the year. What are the exercises, how many sets, reps, how much weight, etc, should I do? Anybody have any good programs?

It would be an added bonus if you could come up with something that would work well in training me for mountain bike races during the Spring and Summer.

Thanks so much!

    Diets do not work. 99% of people gain the weight back. No one teaches the animal what to eat and what not to eat. He knows instinctively what to eat. Humans also have the same instinct. The way it works is just eat whatever tastes good and that will be healthy for you and non-fattening. That is why a baby tastes everything. So again whatever tastes good, is good for you. This is why you will spit out spoiled milk.

    But wait!!! Man has the technology to create rat poison. It tastes like healthy food (good taste) but kills the rat. So man has done that to you. Note– any food unaltered by man (uncooked) that tastes good, is good for you. So if you are stranded in the woods, that is how you know what to eat (cooking changes that). So man has created fake fruit. It tastes like fruit that exists in nature but it is terrrible for health, addictive and fattening called sweets.

    So it is natural to like real sweets called fruit, like a baby does, but they have fooled you just like the rat. But they do not want to kill you. They want you to become obese so you will buy lots of their foods. This is called GOOD BUSINESS. Remember the above (not on site) and see site below to re-learn how to eat so you can be thin and fit for life.
