What if I have osteoporosis?
The research on osteoporosis and osteopenia overwhelmingly shows that in order to stimulate bone and muscle growth, you need to challenge your body with significantly more weight than you would in normal life or more than what you can do with light resistance or bodyweight alone.
We understand that figuring out how to safely lift heavier weights can be challenging. This is why our program is designed to meet you at your current abilities. It bridges the gap between where you are and the skills you need to effectively build strength…and bone mass. 😉
That being said, we are not medical providers. To join this program, you need to be cleared by your doctor to exercise and your osteoporosis needs to be well managed.
We will offer alternatives to avoid loaded flexion. However, this is not an osteoporosis specific program. If you are unsure of what you should or should not be doing for your individual case, then we suggest that you talk with your medical provider to make sure this program is right for you at this time.
