      • None
      • But increase in production of synovial fluid
      • Short-term change brought about by exercise
    • Adaptations
      • Increase in bone mineral density
      • Increase in hyaline cartilage
      • Increased bone tendon junction strength
      • Long-term change brought about by exercise
    • Bone structure
      • Stress placed= stronger
      • Weight bearing activities= results
      • Non-weight bearing activities= encouraging strength gain in areas where tendons attach to bone
        • Tendons= bone to muscle
        • Ligaments= Bone to Bone
      • Bone strengths by depositing more calcium into its structure= more dense
