For preserving bone density try high intensity strength training

‘High-intensity strength training exercises are an effective and feasible means to preserve bone density while improving muscle mass, strength, and balance in postmenopausal women.”

That quote was from this study:Effects of high-intensity strength training on multiple risk factors for osteoporotic fractures. A randomized controlled trial:

 The subjects exercised twice a week performing five different exercises. They ranged in age from 50 to 70.

High intensity strength is usually performed once or twice a week to see continuing results. A session usually lasts about 30 minutes. We have such a strength training program at both our locations - New Orleans Fitness Trainers and Austin Fitness Training. An active lifestyle, better eating choices, and a little strength training can have profound effects on one's health and fitness, and it is a program most people can stick to.
