In brief: Prepare
If you are working out hard in cardio such as running or stairs, the best way to prevent injury is to do strength training with weights and exercise machines.
If you are working out hard with weights then gaining control of your movements with lighter weight and more repetitions will prevent injury. Adequate rest between hard workout days and a good diet are essential.
