Our bones are living tissues and like muscle they respond to exercise. Most people start to lose bone density in our 30’s already!
Regular exercise can help to slow this down and build stronger bones. Along with healthier bones, exercise will increase our muscle strength, co-ordination and balance—all things that will help us stay safer as we get older and more prone to injuries and falls.
What type of exercise is best?
The first type is weight bearing movements like walking, hiking, jogging, climbing stairs and dancing; these are all great options! The second is resistance exercise—using things like free weights and resistance bands.
Afraid or unsure of the whole weight lifting part? Weights do not have to be heavy to build up our muscle strength, it is surprising what can be done with very light weights to build our bodies stronger!
