    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I got a product that seems to really help to strengthen hip bones (and muscles)
    Heard of these shorts from my friend marianne who uses them to firm up her backside .
    I was diagnosed 3 yrs ago with osteopenia in the hip area so I heard that weight bearing exercise is good to strengthen bones and I figured that if these shorts which are weighted can firm up hip area it stands to reason that they may also help bone get stronger.
    Using them is so easy and they are making my hips and legs super strong I am sure that the bone will also get stronger check em out at
