Exercising for Bone Density

Bicep curls can actually help to improve your bone density. Start off with light weights for resistance training. The best way to choose a weight is to pick them up in the store. Start low and work your way up. You should aim for a weight that is light enough that you can do a large number of repetitions. This repeated motion will help the muscles to pull on bones, which will help to maintain or possibly increase your bone density. A physiotherapist can best help you with the exercises themselves and where to get started with resistance training.
