    If you lift hard you get tiny fractures, which heal stronger than before.

    They may not grow in width/depth/length but with proper calcium intake and hard training I definitely think your bones get STRONGER (denser).

    ...but I am not a scientist.

    Saw it on TV where 2 guy were smashing cement bricks. One did w/ Forearms other did w/ Head.

    They were able to do it because of repetitions of breaking bricks, and their bones kept getting denser/stronger.

    At the end of the show they said you can increase bone density by working out/weightlifting.

    Dunno how legit the info is.

    yeah thats where i found out about it.

    it makes sense, a lot of things (muscles, skin, emotional strength) build back stronger by themselves once you break them down.

    I thought that it's common knowledge that bones become stronger through weight lifting. I'm not sure whether they'd get bigger though... I would assume your bones stop growing after adolescence.
