New Powerlifting World Record Creates Bone Health Inspiration
Have you ever heard someone say, “I exercise so I’ll have stronger bones.”
In the past several years, I have seen firsthand how hard it is for people to change old habits and break outdated paradigms. Today, many think that bone strength and density can be improved with certain types of exercises.
Recently published research has clearly shown that these old ways of thinking about exercise and bone health are flat out wrong. In fact, another peer-reviewed study of over 1,000 subjects showed that bones wouldn’t get any stronger unless the subjects experienced skeletal forces greater than or equal to 4.2 times their body weight!To give you some idea of how incredibly hard that is to accomplish in the gym, this article showcases a new world record being achieved in powerlifting.
The record breaker, Chen-Wei Ling, was able to squat 4.5 times her body-weight. Now that’s impressive! Upon learning about this study and seeing that hitting a 4.2 bodyweight threshold is practically impossible, some have just given up hope of ever being able to stop the inevitable aging of their bones. This cloud, however, has a silver lining…
OsteoStrong centers actually help people of all ages, from 12 to 92 years of age achieve this goal on a weekly basis without pain or even breaking a sweat. It only take a few minutes, and the results are unheard of! In fact, a different peer reviewed study of the system used at OsteoStrong had subjects showing a whopping 14% average bone density increase in just 6 months! That is almost 14 times better than the pharmaceutical alternatives in half the time. Go ahead and give it a try. Centers let you experience your first session for free!
