Did you know that high-impact exercise can actually hurt you rather than make you healthier? People often assume that exercise has to be hard on your body to achieve results. However, healthy exercise should not be painful, and this mindset can result in injury and stress on joints. If you are experiencing pain during your workouts, listen to your body and opt for a lower impact option. One of the best exercises you can do to keep your body strong and healthy without putting too much strain on your joints is swimming.
