High intensity workouts are increasing the load on younger people’s hips, knees and backs and prematurely damaging them according to senior orthopaedic consultant Gorav Datta.
As a surgeon he has seen a fourfold increase in injuries in people under 30 that are doing more explosive exercise such as High intensity training (HIIT).
He feels that any cardiovascular benefits did not account for risks on any other part of the body.
As ever – take your time with exercise – take it gently and build good solid foundations. Get advice if you need it.
