Keeping Bones strong through Exercise

I went to a lifeline screening a couple of months ago and it was one of the best things I ever did. I got to find out my glucose levels are just a bit too high and that, in most regards, I am reasonably healthy. However, one thing that was very surprising was the result of a heel bone density test. Apparently, my result was just on the borderline. Which I found amazing. I am not a little guy. In fact I am fairly muscular and until recently tipped the scales at 240 lbs.

But it just goes to show that everyone should pay more attention to their health. That includes diet (I wonder if I wasn't getting enough calcium in my diet) and it also includes having regular checkups and screening.

Now that I've raved a bit about the intrinsic value, I believe, of lifeline screening, here's a link to an article prepared by the lifeline company. One of its basic points is to highlight the value of resistance training (weight training) and enaging in exercise, particularly weight-bearing, to keep the bones healthy and strong.
