High intensity interval training is the new workout trend. Due to its intensity, it is important to ensure you don’t get hurt. “I tell my patients they have to watch out for shoulder and knee injuries, because there is a lot of high impact across the joints,” said Shawn Anthony, MD, MBA, assistant professor of orthopedics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. It is important to warm up properly, cool down, and stretch your body pre and post workout. “It’s very common to feel some pain a day or two after an exercise, however the pain shouldn’t be persistent and there should not be any swelling of joints.”
