Why Strength Training?Posted on Jan 21, 2013 9:58am
Bone Strength and Density
Did you know that losing weight by calorie restriction alone can produce a decline in bone mass and density?
Weight training is the ideal companion for any weight loss program because it helps maintain bone density while you're dropping those kilos. Muscle building and impact exercise strengthens bone by muscle and tendons impacting on the bone at the attachment points and producing growth stimulation.
