Our expert says:
Any form of exercise is good for you though weight bearing exercise like running or walking where you bear you own weight is necessary to stimulate bone formation. You do not need to run- walking 3x week for +/- 3/4 of an hour is fine. If you take in roughly 1000mg of calcium a day, don't smoke and drink alcohol in moderation, you're doing all the right things for your bones.
