I've been doing a lot of research on websites like mercola.com and peaktestosterone.com and have come up with the following program:
1) High itensity interval aerobics ("HIIT") 2-3 times a week. This is quick (and excruciating). You can find it under "Peak 8" at Mercola.com but there are lots of sites talking about it. It boosts HGH (human growth hormone) and Testosterone, gives you a lot of energy and amazing fat loss (if you have fat.) The HGH has been shown to mitigate HIV side effects, and the Testosterone addresses the low-T most HIV patients have.
2) Weight training with high weight and very slow reps 2 twice a week. You can find out more about this also at Mercola.com. The slow reps reduce injury, and the high weight allows fewer reps so yields a faster workout. Like the HIIT, it works your white fast-twitch muscles which stimulate HGH release.

Both types of exercise improve testosterone, stabilize and normalize your lipids, fight high blood sugar, and improve your sexual response.

On other days I might walk, bike, or dance... something to keep moving, keep stretches (yoga is good) but not push my limits otherwise, since rest is very important in these programs to get the benefits.

Also, avoiding sugar especially after the HIIT will maximize the benefits.

For supplementation, whey protein (without the synthetic hormone aspartame and of course without sugar) will help with muscle weight gain and reduce the chances of diabetes. Add some selenium and a good multivitamin, and you're also boosting your T-cells according to recent studies.

Ignore the "big-pharma-only" approach the "experts" in here advise. Exercise is the most powerful drug you can use, and supplements can help to maximize its effects!

In 3 months I've become noticeably leaner, added a lot of muscle, and improved my lipids in my labs. All in only a few hours a week!
