Kindly, let me know what kind of training i should adopt?

Get rid of the signature and people might take you seriously.

The size of your bones are set by your genetics. For example, you can't increase your wrist size. You can increase the strength of your bones by lifting heavy weights and doing exercises that are high impact. Make sure you train progressively so your body has a chance to adapt to the ever increasing training loads. Diet is covered in our nutrition section and in general, you don't need supplements. Calcium is best found in green vegetables and salmon.

Do you mean that your bones are "thin" in the sense of osteopenia, or just small bones? If osteopenia, you should do what Stu says. Your doctor should be prescribing calcium supplements and possibly medication. If you just mean that you are small-boned, then don't sweat it. Work out for strength and your bones will improve.

Bone density is typically specific to the bones that are being worked during a specific exercise. Studies have shown that gymnasts, for example, have increased bone density in their forearms because of hand stands. If you're looking for increased bone density you need to perform exercises that apply a vertical load to the bone. Squats are a good way to go. The exercise applies vertical loads to pretty much the entire skeletal frame. As you continue to progress bones will begin to increase their diameter to redistribute the forces you put on them.

Do you really think that this guy is still interested after a year and a half?

good info though.

And sometimes I do that in new forums; you don't have the same sense of timing or relevance when you first browse a new forum, imo
