Reading Shape magazine this month (March 2018), there was some interesting information titled Stronger Bones in 60 Seconds. They suggest that running for one minute each day can help protect bones from osteoporosis.
“Research in the International Journal of Epidemiology found ‘Sufficient levels of physical force, including that caused by running, can help maintain bone structure. Short bursts of these activities throughout the day can help to increase bone mass,’ says study author Victoria Stiles, Ph.D. Run or do plyometrics like jogging upstairs or jumping jacks during a normally sedentary part of your day, she suggests.”
