Exercise safety is important to avoid injury and maintain good health. Regular exercise is vital for good health, but poor knowledge of basic safety techniques could lead to injuries.
For example, common sports injuries like shin splints are less likely to occur if you run on softer surfaces and allow sufficient recovery time. Wearing protective equipment can reduce the risk of grazes and fractures.
