Exercise for strong Bones
Exercise is good for your bones. However, some exercises such as those that put weight on your bones, are more beneficial. Weight on your bones actually stimulates them to lay down more bone. Exercise also improves muscle strength. Your balance also improves, so the likelihood of falling is less.
- Do aerobic exercises like walking and jogging and strength training (Pilates, weights).
- Walk or run for at least 30 minutes, 5 or more days a week.
- Swimming, dancing, gym exercise and jumping can be beneficial. Prevent falls to avoid fractures.
Our bones are strongest when we are between 20 and 30 years old.
