14 Weight Bearing Moves for Bone Density | Osteoporosis Prevention

14 Weight Bearing Moves for Bone Density | Osteoporosis Prevention All Weight Bearing Exercise is NOT created equal! How do weight bearing exercises stack up for bone density benefit?
Here’s exactly how in a lowest-to-highest ground force rating. Midlife women, especially those in or past Menopause Transition are at risk for bone (and muscle loss)… and its preventable.
You can also treat this list like a progressive suggestion. You may hit your limit for ability to go higher impact. Yet, you’ll be doing the most beneficial in the time you have for the condition you’re in.

Dance Step 2.7
Step Up(30cm) 2.7
Lateral Step up 3.1
Hopping 3.4
Jump squat 3.8
Side to side jumps 3.9
Star jump 4.3
Foot stomp 4.6
Vertical jump 4.7
Side to side over rope 5.1
Depth jump 5.2
Drop jump 5.5
Forward/backward Squat Jump 6.3
Vertical Squat Jump 7.1

To start: Identify the level you’re already doing and go to the next one. Stay there for a few weeks and allow your body to provide feedback and to adapt even if you feel you can do more, there are adaptations happening you can’t see.

In previous Instagram posts (@flipping50tv) about bone density I’ve shared the recommendations:
3-5 sets
10- 20 jumps
4-7 days a week

Beginner? Start with 3 sets, 10 jumps, 4 days.

SAVE THIS! PSst.. “getting the heart rate up” is not the goal, though it may happen. Between weight training sets? No – based on your need for recovery between sets. Busy-ness disallows you to recover. Go do another muscle group instead but don’t tax your system between sets in this way. Result is decreased benefit of either and increased injury risk.

Note: this study was performed to find the exercises to prevent osteoporosis. Check with your physician about your risk and bone density. Use that to discuss with a Medical Exercise Specialist.
