I Want to Work Out "BUT" I Have Osteoporosis

All of us are at risk for osteoporosis and there are simple things you can do to help prevent this debilitating disease. Studies prove that resistance exercises can reduce the risk of fractures by almost three times. Since people who have osteoporosis are more susceptible to fractures, prevention is your best plan of action. Weight bearing exercises help stimulate osteoblasts. (They are the cells responsible for bone matter formation). If you have osteoporosis strengthening your bones is vital to reduce your risk of fractures. But how do you know which exercises are safe and what movements can actually break a bone?
What I want you to remember when working out is no BLT. And I don't mean the sandwich. 
Three Things You Should Never Do With Osteoporosis
1. Bending
2. Lifting
3. Twisting your spine.  
This means no sit ups, side bends or spinal twists.  
Your bones undergo a great deal of changes throughout your life. To keep them functioning at their best, schedule a certain time every day to take care of you with weighted exercises and a calcium rich diet that will help you hold up the rest of your world.
Healthiest Blessings,
Suzanne Andrews
