Running with osteoporosis


We have long been told that the way to strengthen bones and prevent osteoporosis is to get weights in the gym and start lifting.

The desire, I might add, is not so attractive to everyone. But it turns out that some previous studies that the effects of strength training in men evaluated for bone density produced different results.

And now, researchers have discovered at the University of Missouri, that the high-impact activities such as running a greater positive effect on bone density(BMD) and strength training, after all.

The results of the study confirm that training is strength and endurance, high-impact activities to increase bone density, but high-impact sports like running, you will have a greater positive effect.

People who already work in activities such as cycling, swimming, boating or bone should strengthen activities like weight training or running, add to their exercise regimes.

And exercise program to increase boneForce should be developed, what is known about how bones respond to exercise that, according to researchers, since only the skeletal sites that experience greater stress of exercise will become stronger, and in areas such as the hips are often neglected, terms of bone density.

The response of bone to stress is determined by the size of the force and speed and direction (s) on which it is applied, provides high-impact, multi-directional activities, including structured training jumplead to greater gains in bone strength, sports such as basketball, volleyball, soccer and also a good chance.

In the study, researchers found that runners were more cyclists positive BMD and lean body mass with bone density in both forms of resistance and cyclists, but did not award the runners.

FYI: Osteoporosis affects more than 200 million people worldwide and is a serious public health problem according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation.

And while we just forget, we are not the importance of calcium and magnesium in the structure of bone density!
