Women worried about getting the brittle-bone disease osteoporosis should start skipping, jogging and doing high-impact aerobics. In newly issued guidelines, British physiotherapists and osteoporosis specialists said they were the best exercises to avert the disease.

People who already have the disease should do weight and strength training and low-impact step or aerobics programs and brisk walking. Those with severe forms of the disorder who have suffered fractures should try tai chi, a martial arts and exercise system, progressive strength training and low-impact programs.
