What clients are saying - "My doctor said it would not be necessary to start taking drugs to preserve my bone density”

Number ten in a series about what clients have to say about their workouts.

I have had two women (aged 51 and 56) with osteopenia start strength training on the recommendation of their doctors. Both were told to strength train for six months and then have their bone density retested to see if there was an improvement. In both instances their bone density increased, and their doctors told them it would not be necessary to start a drug treatment.
