According to researchers, individuals who continuously participated in high-impact activities such as jogging and tennis during adolescence and young adulthood had greater hip and lumbar spine bone mineral density than those who did not.

For the study, published in the American Journal of Men's Health, researchers analysed data from the physical histories of 203 males aged 30-65 years.

Participants' sports and exercise histories varied, both in type and level of activity, and the length of time spent doing various physical activities also differed.

The researchers found that exercise-associated bone loading during adolescence and young adulthood benefited bone density in adulthood.
