How can I make my bones stronger without going to a gym?

Jump for Your Bones

Just jumping 30 times a day will make your bones stronger and improve your health and fitness. But don't do it cold. Warm up until you break a light sweat. You just have to jump up and down, not off of anything. It's the impact that stimulates your bones. You need two things: a soft surface to land on and your doctor's ok.

Plus, it's fun. Jumping rope is an easy way to accomplish this also, if one still has coordination.

Glad to hear about the jumping being good. Just recently started jumping rope. I always do a good warmup.
