No, this has nothing to do with Roger’s joke from my previous post. I’m talking serious science stuff, people:
“Vibrations Shown to Build Bone, Reduce Fat. . .
(Biomedical engineer) Rubin said scientists have known for a good long while that bones that get a lot of shaking tend to get larger. Tennis players are a perfect example.
For instance, ‘Roger Federer would have 35 percent more bone on his playing arm than his non-playing arm,’ Rubin said.
But even a small amount of vibrating will do.”
Don’t miss the full NPR story – it gives hope to all of us who’d rather not spend hours at the gym every day. Some extra time on the court, however, sounds pretty appealing. . .
