Hi , if you're working under the guidance of a skilled exercise professional who is ensuring that your form and technique are in place, then this is not an issue. It is important that you don't ignore your pre and post workout stretches + the warmup and cool-down routine as well. Hope this helps.

If your health in terms of cardiovascular health, bone health is good and if you have always been exercising then no exercise is harmful if done in the right amount and technique. Let the exercise not become a stress for you. Keep a check on your threshold and edurance.
