What do aerobics, elliptical training, and fast walking have in common? They all help keep your bones strong. This eMedTV slideshow explains why weight-bearing exercise is so good for bone health -- and how it doesn't have to be boring! Read on to learn some easy ways of incorporating weight-bearing exercise into your day, regardless of your fitness level.
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.
