Fitness Routines to Preserve Bone Health

You need to strengthen bones and muscles to avoid falling injuries, which improves your daily functioning and quality of life, according to Jacqueline Shahar, M.Ed., RCEP, CDE, a certified diabetes educator and manager of exercise physiology in the Joslin Clinic.  Just getting up from a chair and sitting back down or stepping  up on a stair or flight of stairs builds up bones, strengthens the muscles around the bones, and improves balance.
