For their study, the researchers examined data received from 43 men and women who had been vegan for at least 5 years and concluded that participants who did resistance training such as using machines, free weights or body weight resistance exercises at least once a week had stronger bones than those who did not.

Christian Muschitz, one of the authors of the study, comments on the results of the study: “Our study showed resistance training offsets diminished bone structure in vegan people when compared to omnivores. People who adhere to a vegan lifestyle should perform resistance training on a regular basis to preserve bone strength.”
