The surprising benefit of jumping...

Bet you didn't know that you can strengthen your leg bones with stress. It's true! Your bones are living tissue, and research shows that your skeleton needs (safe) impact to stay strong - pretty important as you age.

What's more, most people don't get enough of that good type of stress. Walking doesn't cut it, but jumping does. Try this every day for improved hip-bone density. Jump 20 times as high as you can, resting for 30 seconds after each jump.

Want to feel like a kid again? Grab some friends and two jump ropes and play Double Dutch. Watch "Double Dutch Divas" on YouTube for inspiration!
