Bone Remodeling

“The remodeling cycle consists of three consecutive phases: resorption, during which osteoclasts digest old bone; reversal, when mononuclear cells appear on the bone surface; and formation, when osteoblasts lay down new bone until the resorbed bone is completely replaced. Bone remodeling serves to adjust bone architecture to meet changing mechanical needs and it helps to repair microdamages in bone matrix preventing the accumulation of old bone.” PubMed. Through weight-bearing, strength training – we activate bone remodeling that builds stronger bones. The more we ask of our bones, the more they give us!
