Grab yourself a set of light dumbbells and get ready for a full body workout. We start off with standing work as this is a major load bearing posture, which is great for improving bone density, but then we go down to the mat for some serious abs, glutes and back work.

Loading the muscles throughout to help increase bone density- this class begins with standing balances to load the spine & hip muscles and challenge posture & alignment. Then focusing on the deep abdominals and planking to combine everything together.

Bone Health Pilates

Instructor – Jane Linden – You will need a long elastic band, and a pilates ball. The intensity in this class will be felt in your back muscles, all while doing exercises that focus on improving bone density. It’s very important to strengthen your back muscles as your back muscles support the spine upright. Maintaining a good posture will prevent the spine from excessively rounding forwards, which can lead to stress fractures in the spine in those with low bone density.

Most of this class is done standing, which is the posture that places the most weight through your bones and therefor will help to improve bone density. The intensity will be felt in the upper body as this workout takes you through exercises that coordinates upper body and lower body exercises.

By adding dumbbells to our pilates exercises we focus on bone loading to build strong bones. There is a strong emphasis on the hips, which is a major load bearing site in the body, and therefor its an important area to build muscle and bone strength.

It’s the load in your muscles that places tension through your bones, and this is how we improve bone strength. Osteoporosis and osteopenia are silent diseases, so building bone strength is a great prevention.
