Fast Walking

Walking is a type of weight-bearing exercise. This means you are resisting gravity, which helps build strong bones. Try to walk at a brisk pace for about 20 minutes, with the goal of going for longer periods. Grab a friend for company, or the family dog! Listening to music can also make this activity more enjoyable.
