Weight Bearing Exercise and Menopause

This morning's article is from Bella Online----talking about how important weight bearing exercise is for women in their peri/menopausal years. This is particularly important for those of you who enjoy doing water exercise---it's great and has a lot of benefits, but you need to add in a bit of weight bearing exercise also, as the water, even shallow water, makes you somewhat "weightless" (don't we wish) for exercise purposes. I do circuit training 2 days a week, and when the weather cools down, I do walks in my development 2-3 days a week. Have a great week, everyone!
