Week 8: Strengthen Bones
Work out your bones: Losing bone density is an inevitable part of aging, but regular exercise can help slow it down. Exercise with weights can increase bone mass by up to 2 percent by exerting stress on the body, which responds by adding more bone in the strained area. Do weight-bearing aerobic workouts three to five times a week and strength-training exercises two or three times per week.
