EAT AND RUN FOR STRONGER BONES

Runner's World (UK) - - Warm - Ups -

Im­pact in­juries such as stress frac­tures are all too fa­mil­iar to run­ners. While strength train­ing can help build stronger bones, diet has the big­gest im­pact, ac­cord­ing to a study by the Univer­sity of Michi­gan, US. Lazier run­ners will be chuffed to hear a cal­ci­um­rich diet alone ben­e­fits bone strength, even with­out ex­er­cis­ing. But be­fore you throw away your run­ning shoes and open a packet of cheese, it’s worth not­ing that the bone-strength­en­ing ef­fects are am­pli­fied when diet and ex­er­cise are combined.
