Research suggests that you can slow skeletal aging with exercise
But you should be concerned, because itâ€™s what you do now that could determine whether youâ€™ll become an old guy with a broken hip in the year 2060.
Your bones typically gain mass until sometime in your 30s, and then start to lose mass gradually as part of the aging process, according to the National Institutes of Health. Eventually, your bones can grow weak and prone to fracture.
But exercise can help prevent that from happening, research suggests.
Scientists from the University of Missouri recently studied the bone density of men who were 30 to 65 years old.
