National Women’s Week -Topic of the day: Let’s hear it for the bones!

Optimal bone health is one in a myriad of reasons why exercise is crucial. One week of bed rest can result in a 1% decrease in bone mass. Alarmingly, it takes one month of exercise for bone mass to build back up. Bones respond specifically to where the load is focused. Weight training, pilates, and yoga are great ways to maintain bone health. No time for the gym? Drop and give me 20!
