In brief: Too much lifting

There is acute damage that occurs when one lifts too much weight at once and you either hyperflex or hyperextend them or due to being unable to handle it you twist or injury those joints somehow.
Chronic damage is a wear and tear type one that occurs over time due to stressing these joints chronically and resembles arthritis in its presentation.
