For our bodies to keep healthy we have to train it every single day. And while training our bodies may prove expensive, simple work out programs can prove an even better option. For I long time I had kept with my body building training. I loved to keep fit and train regularly because this was my passion since childhood.

Yet even as I kept to my drill I did so as a matter of protocol. Of course my trainer made me to stay to schedule and that was part of the plan so I had to. While this went on for around 5 years it was not until I attended a fitness boot camp one weekend that I realized many other things that I didn’t know. The entire experience was lovely but one thing that struck me was how easily we could train our bones.

Bone training usually has a lot of great benefits that we may not know. And while most people will struggle with arthritis at our later age, training the bones will settle this. What I learnt was that just as your muscles would become stronger while training, so will your bones. It is with this strength that at menopause we will stay arthritis free.

Exercising Your Bones The Best Way

Usually because the bones will experience least strain, it is also at this fitness holidays that I came to know that the best bone building exercises. Actually the best bone building exercises for the bone are usually weight bearing, or those that make your muscles to work against gravity. Here are some of the best bone exercises that I learnt in my three day retreat at the fitness camp.

Resistance exercises

There are different types of strength resistance exercises that you may want to consider to make your bones stronger. When I was at the camp it became vivid that these exercises are usually flexible. They are versatile and with extremely reliable results. We were made aware of how we could add free weights and also practice in machine weights to ensure their success. So usually aim to do strength resistance exercises at least three times a week. These exercises are easy and in most cases free. They include squats, pull ups, and also push-ups among others.


The fame of yoga in releasing body stiffness and tension is un-doubtable. But among some of the most vital things that I learned at the fitness camp was how yoga can also help your bones. Research has it that yoga will slow down bone loss. So if you found a physical therapist, you are good to go the yoga way.


I was damned to realize how important my walking was to my bones. A regular walking routine will help to develop and strengthen the hip bones that are usually vulnerable to fall. So once you have a comfy gear on, and a pair of nice comfy shoes, take a walk. Remember your teens? That’s what I am talking about.


Here I am talking about stationery cycles. You know when my group at the fitness retreat mentioned this it made sense to me. What it does is to keep your body steady and spread your weight. The weight evenly develops the bone.

Fitness camps are highly advisable as a resource or even as a way to meet new people. So if your time allows consider visiting one.
