Studies shows that an intake of calcium before exercise provides an instant bone boosting action. Core strength is great but imagine hanging it off a rock-solid frame and you'll be even more powerful and resistant.
Here is a recommendation that will safeguard vital calcium in your bones and make them less vulnerable to fracture. Researchers found that having a drink with 1g of calcium 20 minutes before cycling, running or training reduced the amount of the mineral that are lost while exercising. They tested two groups of endurance cyclists – one took a calcium drink and the other a placebo. Tests showed reduced calcium in both groups after three 35K time trials, but the calcium drinkers lost less. The experience proved that calcium salts make up about 70% of bone and provide its strength and stiffness. If levels drop, you run the risk of fragile bones and fractures.
