Building Bones

Years ago it was considered "unladylike" for women to lift weights. Now medical science has come around to tell us that taking to the gym is an effective way for postmenopausal women to combat osteoporosis, a disease that causes the loss of bone density. Proper diet that includes plenty of calcium and magnesium and a gradual weight training program can work wonders to prevent the disease from developing. Once osteoporosis has set in, however, it's important for you to get clearance from your doctor to determine if it's safe to lift weights.
