I was recently conducting a training session and one of our members said something that was more powerful than even she probably realizes.
She said, “I recently had a bone density scan and even my doctor was surprised that the results were perfect.”
She went on to explain that the doctor told her he thinks her perfect results were due to the resistance training she does with us.
She was especially pleased because she’s in a phase of life where all of her friends are getting bone density scans as well.
Most of her friends, even the ones that “workout” are being diagnosed with bone density issues.
Her friends do different workouts, including pilates, yoga, and different forms of cardiovascular training.
While those forms of exercise can be very beneficial, they won’t have the same impact when it comes to bone density and even fat loss.
Needless to say, she was thrilled as she should be.
This story illustrates the importance of doing resistance training when it comes to maintaining strong and healthy bones.
This may not be overly appealing to you but if you’re over the age of 40 it should be.
By the time we reach that age, we slowly start to lose it.
Thankfully there are things we can do to prevent severe bone loss. And that’s the key.
You see low bone density (osteopenia) can lead to weak bones (osteopenia) and eventually osteoporosis. This is a point where bones become weak and fragile and can break easily.
When doing resistance training, you’ll want to choose the correct exercises and do them properly.
