Dr. Susan Brown of BetterBones.com recommends using a weighted vest to increase the effectiveness of walking as a weight-bearing exercise for building bone strength, especially for thin women of 114 pounds or less. My doctor recommended something similar: a bookback with a few heavy books inside. Nowadays, though, my I walk carrying one of my beautiful grandbabies, which is fun for both of us!
