Is lifting when obese safe?

Should I be lifting if I am obese?

Weightlifting is encouraged and entirely safe for obese or overweight people.

However, you need to keep in mind that your organs are being crushed by the weight of your fat, so you need to manage the intensity of the workout to prevent organ trauma.

Obese people have the potential to become very good athletes if they lose weight due to the fact that their organs will be abnormally strong and powerful.
