Do joints and bones wear out due to impact?

Matt and Josh talk about the effect of aging, impact, and strength training on your body.

TL;DR: The ability to absorb impact is dependent on your muscles’ ability to position your body parts in a way that allows muscles to decelerate the motion and absorb the force of landing. Bones themselves need only be able to withstand a minimal amount of force if the muscles are able to take on the brunt of the impact.
