High-Intensity Exercise Builds Bone in Older Men
A high-intensity exercise program, already shown effective in improving bone density and performance in women, is also effective in older men with low bone density, according to the LIFTMOR-M study, published in Bone. The protocol incorporates barbell-based weightlifting and impact training involving jumping chin-ups.
@srijit In older adults with low bone density, when it comes to building bone and reducing fracture, a review of the literature suggests that exercise doesn't work. That's not really true though, according to Dr. Beck. An unpublished analysis of studies of high-intensity exercise only at her institution shows promise. "It looks like exercise doesn't work. It's not that, it's that the wrong kind of exercise doesn't work," she stressed.
