Did you know that weight training is great for osteoporosis?
We lose so much muscle as we age that by the time we’re 70, we only have about 50%-55% of our muscle mass left. That explains why we feel weak and tired as we age, and we can prevent some of that with weight training.
Lifting weights can help protect your bones and prevent osteoporosis-related fractures? Studies show that strength training over a period of time can help prevent bone loss. Maintaining strong muscles through weight training helps to keep up your balance and coordination – a critical element in preventing falls, which can lead to osteoporosis-related fractures.
