What about swimming and biking?

Swimming, which is good for your heart and other muscles, isn't the best choice for building bones. Ever notice how you feel a lot lighter in a pool? Water cuts down on the pull of gravity, so your bones don't really get a good workout. Riding your bike is also not an activity that's best for your bones. Just like water, the bike is actually doing the work for you. These activities are fun, though, and good for your health! Just make sure you mix in some best-for-bones activities too.
