In brief: Over exercise

Depends on the exercise.
In general over exercising any joint leads to increased wear and tear of the joint and increases the possibility of degenerative changes in the joints.

In brief: Many ways

Excessive workouts can cause erosion of cartilage if not done correctly i suggest working with a trainer until you know correct posture etc.
You can also get muscle pain, tendonitis and other problems if not done correctly.
