    Objective: The aim of the study is to compare the effectiveness of aerobic exercise and resistance exercise in postmenopausal women with low bone mass. Materials and Methods: Sample size of 20 subjects taken randomly from ACS medical college and hospital. It is a comparative study design with pre- and post-type and the sample size is 45–60 years of age, and normal, lean, obese persons were included. Calcaneal ultrasound, pillows, pen, aerobic step, backpack with heavyweights, dumbbells, andf chair are the materials used. Calcaneal ultrasound is the outcome measures. Result: On comparing the mean values of Groups A and B on bone mass density (BMD) test values, it shows a significant increase in the post-test mean values Group B shows (−1.38) which has the higher mean value is effective than Group A (−1.74) at P ≤ 0.05. Conclusion: Thus, the study reveals that there is more significant difference between the comparison of resistance exercise and aerobic exercise. Resistance exercise is more effective than aerobic exercise on postmenopausal women with low bone mass.
