strength training
May 31, 2010

this question might be stupid but i'am only 12 years old and somebody told me that people can get hiv from exercise like weight training. can you help me?

Response from Mr. Vergel

There is no way you can get HIV from exercise training. HIV can only be transmitted via exposure to blood, semen, or vaginal secretions that come in contact with your blood stream. Wearing a condom during sex and not swallowing semen are the two main things you should always do to prevent HIV infection. You can read more here: HIV Basics
