Weight-bearing exercises

Be sure to include some weight-bearing exercises in your workout regime. This can help to improve the strength of your bones. Enjoy a good workout in the privacy of your own home if you have the necessary exercise equipment. Otherwise you can consider joining the local gym. Speak to a physical trainer if you need advice on what kind of weight-bearing exercises are suitable for you.

Experiencing discomfort?

Always stop if you experience any discomfort or pain and remember that the more fit you are, the more comfortable you will feel when exercising.

Consult your doctor

Always remember to consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.
