High-impact workouts are a type of exercise that involves high-intensity movements with some light (or heavy) impact that can challenge your body and improve athletic performance and fitness levels. High-impact exercise is not for everyone, though. You need to be able to withstand the impact of your feet hitting the ground to tolerate it. If high-impact exercise isn’t comfortable for you, low-impact exercise can still offer you a good workout. High-impact exercise can improve cardiovascular fitness, bone mineral density, muscular strength, endurance, reaction time, and athletic performance.
