    I think most of these just as bad or worse than explosive lifting when done in the long term. I would bet even money that running has crippled more people than all other sports combined. People who run for years are almost universally afflicted with knee problems. At least in my observations.
    *** It's 'moderation' that's the key. Any type of physical exercise that's performed too often (so that the body can't adapt to it) will result somewhere down the line in the form of a soft tissue injury.

    Also from what I've read I'm not aware of any peer reviewed studies out there that indicate that running is the worst form of exercise.
    One last thing, what we observe or percieve is not always what it seems when it comes to the human body and other things for that matter. I also don't know whether you've watched people carefully over the years and have taken note. If you have then you must have a lot of time on your hands.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    *** Just as in strength training there are a high incidence of muscular starins and in sports a high incidence of groin strains.
