Your Bones are Part of Your Metabolism

by Aug 26, 2019Blog, Muscle Gain, Strength and Conditioning

Did you know your bones are metabolically active?

It’s an under appreciated fact that your skeleton is part of your metabolism, albeit to a far lesser degree than muscle but it still plays a vital role.

When we reach 18 years old most of our skeleton is fully developed and from there on in (spot the euphemism?) we are simply breaking down our bones (through osteoclasts) and building back up (through osteoblasts ) in a process called bone resorption.

Did you know that high intensity exercise increases the rate at which this takes place? When we train at high intensity we change the PH of our muscle and we recruit minerals from our bones to bring muscle PH back to normal levels.

If you live in the UK it’s likely you will need to supplement Vitamin D in any case but it’s particularly important if you train at high intensity to make sure your levels are healthy to keep your bones in good health.
