Bellevue Personal Training | Exercise Suggestions for Osteoporosis

Did you know that over half of adults over the age of 50 have osteoporosis, and are at risk for breaking a bone?

Below are some lifestyle suggestions to help strengthen weak bones:

**Begin a strength training (weight lifting) program, participating at least twice a week. An accredited Personal Trainer will know how to help you work with your strengths and weaknesses.

High impact weight bearing exercises, other than strength training, can help rebuild lost bone. Dancing, hiking, stair climbing, tennis, squash, and jumping rope are all good choices.

Low impact weight bearing exercises include brisk walking, elliptical machines, body weight exercises, Yoga, and Pilates.

If you work in an office, practice standing frequently and walking every hour.

Nix the elevator and take the stairs as much as possible.

Do 100 ‘heel drops’.
