LIFT UP FOR STRONGER BONES
Protect yourself from stress fractures by hitting the weights bench. A new study, published in The Journal of Strength and
Conditioning, found that resistance-trained runners had greater bone density than trained runners who had done no resistance work, independent of other physiological factors such as testosterone levels. The study concluded that runners should perform resistance training at least once a week to achieve greater bone density. Aim for a mix of squats, dead lifts and kettlebell swings, focusing on good form and only graduating to heavier weights once your technique is solid.
