“Bone is living, stress-responsive tissue, just like muscle, ligament, tendon, skin, nerve, and brain. It adapts to stress just like any other tissue, and becomes DENSER and HARDER in response to HEAVIER WEIGHT. This aspect of barbell training is very important to older trainees and women, whose bone density is a major factor in continued health.”
-Mark Rippetoe, on Wolff’s Law in Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training
