Injuries and “High intensity” exercise

My son runs a gym called True180 Fitness in Georgetown (DC), and shared this article with me.

He wrote:

“This article is a disturbing reminder of why safety is so important (and to a lesser extent why calling what we do “high intensity exercise” isn’t a great idea because that’s now associated with people doing stupid and irresponsible things):  ”

  2. Sure, But when ordinary people who don’t know a whole lot of anatomy and physiology sign up for a program like this, they generally assume that the people running the program know what they are doing. However, this is not necessarily the case, as this article shows.
