Wolff’s Law states wherever you put more pressure on bones, the body will build more bone there. This law explains why any weight-bearing exercise is going to help build stronger bones, as long as there is some weight involved other than your own body weight. Here are some good examples of weight-bearing exercises:
- Burpees with weights
- Dumbbell or barbell exercises
- Squats with weights
You should do these exercises at least four days a week. If you exercise anything less than that, you are exercising less than half the week. The time frame for each session should be for about 30 to 45 minutes. By incorporating weight-bearing exercises such as squats and burpees into your daily routine, you will help build and maintain strong, healthy bones.
