Video 397 | Bone Density Challenge Day Two (30 minutes) with Lauren Eirk
5 Day Bone Density Challenge • 24-Jan-2023
Experience a bone-loading Pilates-inspired resistance training exercises that are themed in trunk and hip rotation. We begin the workout with a breath-centered warm up to set our intention and lower stress, as chronic stress negatively affects our bone health. As we move through seated, supine, and prone exercises, we will use an elastic band to create a challenge to our muscles. As muscles contract, they place pressure on our bones to stimulate bone growth.
Remember that we tend to get used to the positions and motions that our daily life requires. Many joint positions are never experienced, leading to bone loss from muscle loss.
Bones become stronger with force application. Force application must be strategic and multi-directional. We must prioritize spinal health, as this is a major area of bone loss due to inactivity. Also areas common to bone loss are the femoral neck, greater trochanter, and calcaneus (heel bone).
