Take my free five day email course, Exercise for Osteoporosis, and learn how a safe exercise program can lead to better bones.
For a detailed guide on proper exercises for osteoporosis, please refer to UHN’s , a unique book written specifically for people looking to prevent and treat osteoporosis.
During your free Exercise for Osteoporosis email course I cover a number of important topics related to exercise and your bone health. Here is a sample of some of the topics:
Resistance training promotes strengthened upper spine and arms and can help promote growth of bone tissue. Exercises for osteoporosis often incorporate weights and resistance bands. The Seated Row is a great technique that strengthens back muscles and requires a resistance band. Sit up right on the floor with feet extended in front of you. Place the resistance band behind the balls of the feet and secure each end of the band by wrapping them around the hands. Pull the band toward you while keeping the back straight. Hold for a second and then release the arms and repeat the movement for six to eight repetitions. Start by performing this exercise once a day and gradually increase the frequency to twice a day. You can also progress to a higher resistance band. Do this three to four times a week.
