give weight training a try for stronger bones

From: blackmamba - 8 years 41 weeks ago

I was diagnosed 6 yrs ago with osteoporosis and I did change my diet drastically cut down on coffee coke smoking cut it out completely.
But you need to read studies on how putting weight or resistance on the bone will force it to grow stronger . I have read many articles and studies done at leading universities for example in tennis players the arm that holds the racket and swings at the ball always has much stronger thicker bone than the one arm that does not hold racket so there are many studies. I hate the gym and have no time for it so I got a weight vest by nyknyc see it at they make a nice one for women with osteoporosis and since Im using it over 2 yrs .. the MD sez my bones have increased in density, so I know it works , sure worked for me! try the vest it really helps build bones

Do you find this discussion helpful?
