MOJI OVERVIEW:

Gretchen Reynolds of The New York Times examines recent studies that call into question the role of exercise in bone growth and discusses the conflicting evidence that has fascinated sports medicine doctors and researchers for decades and the fact that researchers are becoming less certain as to what exercises are good for strengthening bones.  Though Reynolds does not come to a final conclusion on exercise, she does offer an interesting new perspective from Dr. Alexander G. Robling, author of a new paper for the official journal of the American College of Sports Medicine.  Professor Robling’s research suggests that there are definitive exercises that will help bone growth, specifically those that require bursts of speed or force.  Through an analysis of Roblings work, as well as other recent studies, Reynolds provides a clearer picture of how and why exercise should play a role in bone health.
