What is it about?
Exercise use to be associated to better bone health, however some types of exports like cycling or swimming has been associated to no so good in bone effects. we aim to describe how the implementation of the whole body vibration training may help to improve the bone formation metabolism in those adolescents who are swimming for many hours a week and could be increasing their bone less than what should be desirable

Why is it important?
Curiously, the combination of swimming training and this particular vibration protocol led to a decrease in bone formation markers, especially during early puberty. Whole-body vibration might not induce an osteogenic stimulus in adolescent swimmers.
