Regular exercise at young age make bones stronger at old age
Diligent exercise when young may not only benefit at the time, but also till we become adults and become elders. Recent studies reveal that regular exercise at a young age will improve bone health and strengthen it up to old age.
When people start exercising since young until they are adults, they will get a huge benefits, says researcher Stuart Warden of the Indiana University School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, as reported by Health Day News.
These results were obtained after researchers conducted observations in 103 professional baseball players. They compared the bone mass, size and strength of their muscles when they still played and after retirement. When they were young they increased muscle mass and strength so that in old age, their muscles are bigger and stronger.
Researchers hope that the results of this study encourages the youth to diligently exercise and have an active lifestyle.
