Bone Health: Exercise is Not Enough

A recent clinical study showed for an individual to trigger osteogenesis (bone regrowth), that individual must place 4.2X their body weight onto their legs and spine.

The study included around 1,000 adolescent subjects (mean age 17.7 years old). Researchers performed a cross-sectional analysis between physical activity and hip bone mineral density from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC), while partitioning outputs from a NEWTEST accelerometer into six different impact groups. The accelerometer monitors daily exercise, everyday physical activity, and overall bone health related to the exercise.

The results showed that subjects that exceeded 4.2X MOB (Multiples of Bodyweight) saw an increase in their bone density. Individuals who saw impacts greater than 4.2X MOB saw an even greater increase in bone density. The pressure was measured in subject’s lower extremities: Hips and Lumbar. A person achieveing under 4.2X MOB, even if done repeatedly, will not experience an increase in bone density in their hips and lumbar region. However, if a person achieves more 4.2X MOB even once will trigger osteogenesis.

Why It Matters

If you want to increase your bone density, whether you have osteoporosis or desire healthier bones, you need to be placing 4.2X your bodyweight on your legs and spine. Exercise will increase muscle size and strength, but it will not increase bone density. For example, a person going to the gym doing leg presses of 100 pounds may increase muscle strength, but because it is not more than 4.2X MOB it will not help with bone strength and reversing the impact of bone loss. Simply put, exercise and weightlifting is not enough.

At OsteoStrong, members often experience MOB in the range of 7X to 10X through OsteoStrong’s patented technology and process. A study published in 2015 (Basil, H. Jaquish, J. PhD. 2015) using the OsteoStrong experience saw an average of 14% increase in bone density within 6 months of 5-10 minute sessions (2015 study above).
