Video 398 | Bone Density Challenge Day Three (30 minutes) with Lauren Eirk
Total Body • 25-Jan-2023
Experience a bone-loading resistance training exercises that are themed in shoulder, elbow, hip, and spinal flexion. We begin the workout with several isometric positions to activate our muscles and prepare the body. Next, enjoy several hip and spine core floorwork exercises to load the spine. As we move to standing, we are working the the bones of the lower body in squatting and lunging variations. Enjoy some great shoulder, elbow and wrist exercises as well so that you get some upper spine resistance work.
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).
