PRESSURE ON YOUR BONES MAKE THEM GROW STRONGER

For bones to maintain and increase their density, weight-bearing force is required. The best way to do this is to apply as much force as SAFELY possible. 

Weight-bearing exercise, in the correct amounts, puts pressure on bones in order to stimulate new cells to replace old ones and absorb calcium, making them harder. 

 

Osteoporosis is a condition of the bones specific to their density. It occurs when you lose too much bone and/or make too little bone. As a result, your bones become weak and may break from a fall. About 54 million Americans have low bone mass, which means they are at increased risk for Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis actually means “porous bone.” If you look at healthy bone under a microscope, you’ll see that parts of it look like a honeycomb. If you have osteoporosis, the holes and spaces in the honeycomb are bigger than they are in healthy bone. Many people age 50 or older make a decision to have a bone density test.

 

BECAUSE IT ONLY TAKES 60 SECONDS TO ACHIEVE PURE POWER.
