Strength training program
Strong bones are important at all ages, even more in middle age, because bone density starts to decline after 30 years up.
The good news is that exercise can slow down this process. 15-minute workout will strengthen your muscles, maintain bone density and speed up metabolism. Exercise by 2 to 3 times a week, use 3-pound weights and however increase the weight by time.
