(INDIANAPOLIS) - Are you a weekend sports warrior? Doctors say there's pros and cons for sports enthusiasts who find little time to indulge in their favorite activities during the workweek, but try instead to cram a weeks worth of them into two short weekend days.

The good news is that weekend-warrior type exercise is still beneficial to the cardiovascular system.

The bad news, weekend warriors run a high risk of joint and muscle injuries as a result of their lifestyle.

Indianapolis Doctor Christopher During says weekend warrior activities tend to be longer in duration and greater in intensity than weekday exercise sessions and therefore injuries are most likely to occur in the joints and muscles of the knees, shoulders and elbows.
