How does glycation affect joints?

ANSWER

Glycation can make your joints stiff and brittle. Pounding away with HITT or making a lot of fast moves might by risky -- one wrong move could lead to an injury. Routines that have you do the same moves over and over again can cause problems. Stiff joints can also take a toll on your balance, setting you up for a fall.
