Bone Zone

In early adolescence, each additional hour of moderate-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) is associated with small increases in bone size and strength; and sedentary activity had little impact on bone.

Bone geometry and density show strong parent-child concordance even before the period of peak adolescent bone deposition.

This paper demonstrates the application of compositional data analysis to show that, among adults, greater body mass is associated with stronger bones, but at every level of body mass, stronger bones are associated with body compositions with higher proportions of fat-free mass and lower proportions of truncal and non-truncal fat.

This study describes the Goldilocks “just right” daily durations of physical activity (moderate-to-vigorous and light intensities), sedentary time and sleep that are associated with the best skeletal health in children.
