Osteoporosis is largely Preventable. Bones are living tissue and can become denser with weight bearing and weight resistance exercise. This process is called bone loading.
Skeletal Fitness by Mirabai Holland Interval Cardio/Strengthis a one-on-one Weight Bearing Exercise workout video For Osteoporosis and Low Bone Mass, Osteopenia
Mirabai adds, “We can reduce the impact of osteoporosis in much the same way that seat belts have reduced injuries in car crashes. Remember, an ounce of prehab is worth a pound of rehab!”
The new DVD, titled Skeletal Fitness by Mirabai Hollandâ: Interval Cardio/Strength, addresses agility and fall prevention issues associated with osteoporosis.
The new DVD includes 10-minute intervals of weight-bearing cardio dance movements alternated with intervals of weight bearing and resistance bone-loading upper body strength exercises. The routine helps prevent or manage osteoporosis, protects the cardiovascular system, strengthens and sculpts all at once.
“I decided to turn Skeletal Fitness into a series of DVDs because osteoporosis is a huge age-related issue that’s shaping up to be a monumental problem,” Mirabai says. “With 12,000 baby boomers turning 65 daily and with half of women over the age of 50 projected to have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime, we women need to do everything we can to stave off this ugly disease.
“We’ve known since the ’70s that bone loading works. Studies with tennis players show that bones in the racquet arm grow stronger and more dense than the bones in the non-racquet arm, just as a result of whacking a ball back and forth. So my expanded Skeletal Fitness program is a fun, easy-to-do form of bone-loading.”
