BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to determine the effects of different physical activity (PA) programs on bone density, balance and quality of Life of postmenopausaL women taking concomitant aLendronate. A quasi-experimental study was conducted with 35 volunteers divided into four groups: practitioners of resistance training (RTG, n = 9, 49.8±4.2 years), judo (JUG, n= 11, 52.2 ±5.3 years), water aerobics (WAG, n = 8, 57.1 ±7.4 years) and the control group (CG, n = 7, 53.8±4.4 years… CONTINUE READING
