Exercise Training and Bone Mineral Density.
Lohman, Timothy G.
Quest, v47 n3 p354-61 Aug 1995
The effect of exercise on total and regional bone mineral density (BMD) in postmenopausal women is reviewed. Studies on non-estrogen-replete postmenopausal women show 1-2% changes in regional BMD with 1 year of weight-bearing exercises. Studies of exercise training in the estrogen-replete postmenopausal population suggest large BMD changes. (Author/SM)
