What activities are best for bone health?

But when it comes to bone health, beneficial exercises aren't quite so obvious and clear cut.

So which forms of exercise are best for bone health?

The key to improving and/or maintaining bone strength lies in weight-bearing exercises. Those exercises, which force the body to work against gravity, include both high-impact and low-impact activities.

Weight-bearing exercises, which you should do to boost bone health, include:

  • Running
  • Aerobics
  • Hiking
  • Tennis
  • Climbing stairs
  • Dancing
  • Lifting weights

Non-weight-bearing exercises, which are beneficial to overall health but not to bone health, include:

  • Swimming
  • Cycling
  • Seated exercises
