If you do not normally exercise, so start gently and increase activity gradually. In this way you avoid overloading your muscles and joints.

Start gently up-also if you choose a new health form.
Work out regularly at the beginning – with constant training volume.
Keep at least one day's break between that you coach.
Combine. several exercise types.
Make sure proper equipment-such as shoes are a good fit and wear othotic insoles.

When you start exercising, you will quite naturally be a little sore in the muscles and joints. It subsides within a few days and does no harm.

But training may not get the joints to raise or do more hurt than usual. If the pain suddenly breaks out during exercise and persists (and possibly increases) in several weeks, you should get your doctor to look at it.

Avoid where possible overload damage. They occur when you are running on too fast, hard or intensive. How easily you get overload damage depends on your age, body weight, exercise and health, as well as previous damage.
