Strong bones are the stuff of life! According to Wolff’s Law, our bones get stronger when we put load on them. This means that we need to consistently load our body in a variety of planes of motion. From agility to running to hiking and weight lifting, all of these make bones stronger. Human bones completely remold from the inside out in about 10 years when the body is healthy. Put under load, that time can be lessened and made lifelong.
