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).

What is Osteoporosis and what are some of the causes?

Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue. Bone is a living tissue and is in a constant state of renewal, meaning that new bone is being made while old bone is broken down. When you are younger, your bone mass increases because your body can sustainably renew bone. Most individuals reach their peak bone mass by their early 20s and as you age, your bone begins to weaken which can lead to osteoporosis.

Here are some of the risk factors and causes:

  • Age – The older you are, the greater your risk of developing osteoporosis
  • Sex – Women are more likely to develop osteoporosis
  • Family History – A parent or sibling with osteoporosis puts you at a greater risk

Because your bone is weaker, several complications can occur like bone fractures leading to pain and soreness. The most serious fractures can happen in the spine or hip often caused from a fall. Sometimes the vertebrae in your spine weaken causing back pain and poor posture. Osteoporosis can also lead to joint pain in your knees and other areas of high impact.

What is OsteoStrong?

Would you like a stronger body and stronger bones?

Would you like improved stamina and agility?

Would you like to play better golf, tennis, hike, and not feel so sore afterwards?

OsteoStrong can help. OsteoStrong is not a gym but will help you increase your strength, balance, and agility. One 5-10 minute session per week is all it takes to achieve results. Your weekly session will involve performing specialized activates with a trained technician that trigger your body to increase its bone density. The best part is no sweat or pain!

How does it work?

While it may sound too good to be true, OsteoStrong is backed by scientific studies and medical experts. When we are younger, our body makes muscle fibers, but that stops around age 18. Working out at the gym and lifting weights builds muscles. This type of activity makes your muscles bigger and creates soreness, but this does not mean your muscles are stronger.

Through OsteoStrong’s patented technology and program you can expect to get stronger muscles, not bigger muscles all without the pain of working out.

Who will this help?

  • Seniors
  • Athletes
  • Weekend Warriors
  • Anyone of any age
  • People with Osteoporosis and others who want to keep their bones healthy and strong

What will it help?

  • Increase bone density with the goal of reducing the effects of Osteoporosis
  • Balance and agility
  • Back and Joint Pain
