Them bones, them bones!!..
Had a few questions this week on bones..!!.
What exercise I can do to strengthen?
so my number one answer is, lift weights and/or do bodyweight exercises.
Lifting weights or your bodyweight not only strengthen
and stimulates your whole skeleton system it adds stress
as bones like a certain amount of stress to function.
it adds muscle tone, muscle structure,
ligaments, tendons, will all benefit.
Bone density and bone health.
There is a strong connection with
nutrition with absorption of vital vitamins and minerals,
antioxidants, enzymes, macro and micro nutrients,
EFA's, amino acid, fats, protein, carbohydrate.
My top 12 facts on Bone Health & Quality
1. Peak bone mass is between 25-30years,
2. Bone is reactive not proactive
3 Not all exercise is bone protective or bone stimulation (sorry but aqua is not, as its a non-weight bearing exercise)
4. Calcium functions in the body

6. Bone mass decline with menopausal years
7. Bone depletes with
8. Calcium stores in the bone
9 Anybody can suffer from Osteoporosis.
10. Absorption is Key, therefore gut health is vital for bone health
11. Lifting weight /bodyweights boosts your testosterone - increase libido..
12. Hydration is a key element.

Great sleep could be a side effect

Fitness Pilates hits the spot for the above and much more

posture, breathe, mobility, movement, and it functional.
