Exercise for strong muscles, bones: PHE

No icon Spot Light

Health Desk-- 5th July, 2018: Public Health England (PHE) said too many of us neglects to do exercises for strong muscles and bones.  

It's launched a new report giving advice on how people can age better by doing the right workouts.

While the message about doing aerobic exercise for a healthy heart and lungs is getting through, people are less clear about the need to look after their overall strength too, it says.

We should all be doing strengthening exercises at least twice a week.

Lifting weights is one option, but taking up tennis or dancing also works, says PHE and the Centre for Ageing Better.
