Research shows lifting weights creates denser bones and builds stronger muscles that help stabilize and protect joints. Strength training is the best way to boost your metabolism (and get a sleeker bod, too).
Choose your favorite spots and walk them at least once a week. Hiking burns calories, strengthens muscles and builds denser bones, while providing interesting scenery and a chance to get in touch with Mother Nature.
Curtail your caffeine intake. While you may need that extra burst of energy in the morning, try and resist those second and third cups of coffee. Studies show that the extra caffeine can weaken your bones.
