Exercise for Healthier Bones

Want to keep your bones strong and healthy? Make sure you get plenty of exercise to help ward off problems such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and pain affecting the joints and lower back.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions for boosting your bone health:

Get low-impact exercise via activities such as swimming, walking and biking.
Perform gentle stretching and strengthening exercises.
Perform weight-bearing exercises such as dancing, climbing stairs, hiking and tennis.
Play sports such as golf that are relatively easy on the bones and joints.

HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND!!!!!!

Family Fitness Idea #5

Make Yard Work Less of a Chore for More Family Exercise

Enjoy seasonal yard work together. Younger children can help plant and tend a garden. Older kids can rake leaves into a pile -- and then jump in it. Make snow shoveling fun for all by building a snow fort or creating a family of snow people.

    Ever since I quit working to stay home with my kids, I now how more time to do yard work. It's amazing how much of a workout one can get doing this. My 4 year old daughter loves to help. Sometimes she gives me more work but I have so much fun watching her have fun and gives me those extra 15 mins I need. Lately the wheather here in So Cal has been a little warm so we try and rake the leaves early so we don't toast out there. Tomorrow I was going to mow the lawn but have to help at kids school, sure that will be a work out too!!!

Sing and Dance While You Clean

Set aside time for household chores and do them together as a family. Play music as you clean, and take turns choosing favorite songs. Younger children love to help out and can pick up toys or sweep floors while dancing with the broom. Older kids can dust, vacuum, and help make beds

Family Fitness Idea #3
Plan Active Family Gatherings

Serve up family fitness as well as food at your child's birthday party by planning active games such as tag or relay races. Older kids might enjoy throwing a dance party.

Any large gathering of kids is also a great opportunity to play a team sport. Just head to a nearby soccer field or basketball court. Other active party ideas: a pool party, in-line or ice skating, or climbing at an indoor rock gym.

At family or holiday gatherings, turn off the TV and take a walk around the neighborhood or go for a short hike at a local park. Or get everyone outside for a game of catch or shooting hoops.

Family Fitness Idea #2

Walk or Bicycle Everywhere You Can

Use muscle power: Bike or walk to the grocery store, library, or to your child's school or sports events. Go for a 30-minute family walk after dinner instead of heading right for the television. Track everyone's mileage or steps with a pedometer, and try to add more distance every week. Use a family exercise log or colorful stickers to track your progress. Put your log or chart on the refrigerator as a reminder to keep up the good effort together.
