The ARED allows astronauts to put a specific amount of resistance on their bodies, helping them weightlift in weightlessness. The astronauts exercise for about two hours each day to keep up bone density and prevent muscle loss during their time in space. Before launching into space, astronauts work with trainers on the ground to develop a plan for exercise while in orbit.
