Why NYKNYC Weight Vest for Osteoporosis
Weight-bearing Exercise with a Weight Vest
It has been well proven over the last twenty years that weight-training ads strength to the muscles and density to the bones.
Dr Christine Snow, who was the Director of the Bone Research Laboratory at Oregon State Univ., together with other women started a grassroots exercise program for Osteoporosis Risk Reduction. They spread the program all over
"These kinds of results from an exercise routine haven't been achieved before and they contradict what the medical community has been saying for years". Dr. Snow said. "One important aspect of the study is its longevity. When we checked these women after nine months, the results for bone mass weren't significant. After five years, though, the improvement was significant," Another study was written up in the Biological Research for Nursing newsletter in 2003. Eighteen women over 60 were randomly assigned to an exercise group wearing a weight vest and doing strength training for one hour three times a week, or to a control group that did nothing. The weight vest group had significant changes in bone density and in weight loss in 32 weeks. http://brn.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/4/3/171
How to Use a Weight Vest
By wearing a weight vest during your walking time or your most active time of the day you are getting the benefits of weight training without most of the effort. The weights should be as high on the body as possible to give the most benefit to the bones. Weights on the ankles and wrists do nothing to help your core bones and can harm the fragile bones in those areas.
You start out with only 4 lbs of weight and work up gradually . This vest is good for the average women who are typically most at risk of osteoporosis but it is also good for overweight women to accelerate weight loss and change fat into muscle.
There is really no negative to this kind of weight-bearing exercise. You wear the vest around the house for an hour every day until you get stronger. By then you will feel friskier and want to take a walk or do some rebounding on a mini-trampoline. Add weights according to your own tolerance and take a few days off every month to give your body a rest.
Robert Klapper, MD, clinical chief of orthopedic surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA, said that "walking is an exercise to the joint and what would maximize the benefits of walking is including a little bit of extra weight". Additional benefits to walking aside from losing weight and strengthening the heart - walking with weights is good for your bones. Walking wearing weighted vest is a holistic, low-impact solution that will keep calcium in your bones
