Running Affects Positively On The Bone Density

Running Affects Positively On The Bone Density

Spanish scientists have studied the effect of durable running training on the stiffness index. This variable is related to bone quality. The results prove that the longer distance you cover, the better. Your chances to prevent the progressive decline in bone mineral density increase.
 
The bone quality of healthy people is merely determined by bone mineral density. It depends on many factors such as sex, age, race, and diet. However, the bone density can be changed by making lifestyle improvements, for example by exercising regularly.

The researchers from Camilo José Cela University (UCJC) have undertaken another study, which concludes how training to compete in long-distance races (from 10 km to marathons) can change the mechanical properties of the calcaneus. It’s a bone in the foot that forms the heel.
 
During this research, the scientists performed some bone density tests on both the right and left feet of 122 marathon runners and 81 half marathon and 10km runners. The results taken were compared to the ones of a control group. The control group included the individuals of a similar age, but leading a sedentary lifestyle.

The researchers also imply that training for long-distance runs is effective in modifying the physical properties of the calcaneus. Thus, start working out to prevent the progressive decline in bone mineral quality, occurring with age.
