This was nicely done, with a lot of information. I had done the Strong Women weight training program several winters ago, and have continued doing the leg exercises, but not the arm ones, as I have had a problem lately with my right wrist. There was a fair amount of repetition--which seems to be necessary for these authors to fill up a whole book. She mentioned some medications which are new to me. I would take it with me if I were going to consult about my worsening bone density.
Another good book from Miriam Nelson. I would recommend for any woman suffering from osteoporosis (like me.)
