Do you avoid doing high-intensity workouts because of how they make your joints feel?

While there are a number of metabolic and health benefits that can come from doing high-intensity workouts, if they are breaking down your joints in the process, the tradeoff may not be worth it to you.

But is there a way that you can do high-intensity workouts without risking injury or feeling achy or sore after?

Maybe even a way that your joints can become healthier as a result of doing the high-intensity workouts without the pain or stiffness that so many people feel?

There is! And on this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast, that is exactly what we want to lay out for you.

If you have been wanting to try doing workouts that are more intense but have been holding back because of your joints, listen up!

This episode will dive into what you need to do and the precautions you need to take to get the intensity without the injury.

Check out all the details in this week’s episode!
