Depends on the body part(s) that are getting beat up.

If you think something is beat up or is beat up, it's a good idea to work on it. Or if there's a weak area.

As you can imagine mostly legs and back gets a pounding.
What sort of reps/sets on prehab session?
Wholebody exercises?
Got a persisting back injury?
Any Thoughts?

Generally, higher reps and a couple sets. Mostly light weight either working movement patterns or working on stabilizing/mobility for an area.

Take a look in the recovery forum for more specific stuff.
