Bone Building Exercise

Exercise Articles

When you're trying to drop pounds without exercising, you could be losing important bone, according to a recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine. As your body gets lighter, it may not put enough stress on your skeleton to produce bone-building activity. Exercise, especially strength training, helps prevent bone loss and may even increase bone density by regularly stressing your bones. Studies show that exercises requiring muscles to pull on bones cause the bones to retain and possibly gain density.
