On this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast, Julie and Charlie take a deep dive into the scientific research of what needs to be done with your workouts in order to prevent bone loss. Even though popular opinions like to talk about activities such as walking to prevent bone loss, the research paints a shockingly different picture.
