–control study showed that brisk walking is associated with DRF ( O’Neill, Marsden, Adams, & Silman, 1996 ). The incidence of DRF is four times higher in women than men ( O’Neill et al., 2001 ), which could be attributed to a higher prevalence of low bone density and osteoporosis. The frequency of DRF is 8

). Moreover, although not clear yet, there are evidences suggesting a protective effect against TF attributed to land-based sports (support by its osteogenic impact on bone density parameters), while this protective effect seems not extended to water-based sports (where the osteogenic impact is not clear) ( 7

hormone concentration alone is not used to determine hypogonadism. 10 In order to be considered for androgen therapy, an individual must demonstrate symptoms associated with hypogonadism, such as low libido, gynecomastia, infertility, low bone density, or reduced muscle mass. 10 As previously noted, 21

Osteoporosis is a condition where bone density and bone strength is reduced, and there is a significantly increased risk of bone fracture. 1 Osteoporosis is a silent epidemic responsible for fractures in 50% of women and 20% of men worldwide. 2 Approximately 52 million women and men have
