Strength Training For Bones:
Exercise affects your muscles and bones in similar ways.
When you work out on a regular basis, your muscles get bigger and stronger. By contrast, if you sit around doing nothing, they get smaller and weaker.
The same principle holds true for bones, although the changes are less noticeable. Not only do muscles and bones both respond to exercise, but the changes in both of them happens in tandem.
That's because muscles and bones work together to make your body move-and for maximum efficiency, muscle and bone strength need to be balanced. Consider what would happen if this balance didn't exist.
At one extreme, a weak muscle wouldn't be able to move a big, strong bone.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, if a muscle were much stronger than a bone, it would snap.
The human body naturally maintains the right balance. As your muscles grow stronger from exercise, they pull harder on bones. The harder they tug, the more your body strengthens those bones. The reverse also holds true. If you don't work out, your muscles get weaker, and the force they apply to bones decreases. The bones follow suit, growing weaker. So, when you do strength training to build muscle, you're also building stronger bones.
