A new Healthy Bones Australia Exercise Guide is now available as part of our new website focusing on 3 types of exercises for bone health. It shows examples of exercises that can be done at home or working with a personal trainer.
Exercise expert Professor Belinda Beck says “research has shown us that when it comes to your bones not all exercise is the same. A combination of weight bearing, resistance training and balance exercises should be the focus.”
Professor Beck stressed these types of exercises must be regular and increase in difficulty over time to ensure exercise remains challenging. Professor Beck says “You can exercise at any age as long as you start within your capacity and increase gradually.’’
