Today I am going to talk about how to start your osteoporosis therapy exercises program. Exercise for Better Bones is my prescriptive exercise program for people with osteoporosis. I invited several clients to talk about their experience with their program. Both Josephine and Ken had specific bone health challenges but had specific needs.

Osteoporosis Therapy Exercises Prescriptive Program
Josephine: One of the things about doing this program is that, now it’s part of everyday. I found different things to do, and exercises that I actually enjoy doing, that I can do on a daily basis and fit into my routine.
Any time I tried it in the past I might have done it for few weeks and then stopped. But this time, I think just because of the nature of the exercises and once I’m particular with thinking about some of the strength ones and some of the cardiovascular.
So, just getting in the walking and building up my stamina certainly has improved over the six months.
Basically the way my program works is in fact, I can do it all in my bedroom. So, often what happens is, I’ve been out for a walk. I’ve done some cardiovascular exercise and then I come back and it’s with the use of a ball, basically, in my own bedroom space. I’m able to work through all of the exercises.
The biggest drawback to going to gym for me was that you had to go out again in the evening. In order to keep doing it, I think being in the comfort of your own home is terrific, and it’s a lot easier to do it.
All my exercises actually can be done in the space that’s there within the bedroom. So, requires a small amount of space and very little equipment.
Ken: Swimming have been my form of exercise virtue all my life. I swam competitively when I was young, both high school and university, and continued. If I had lose weight or I had to get in shape I went to the pool, and swam some laps. And, I always considered that…I think that was part of the shock. I always considered that to be the best of all exercise and I kept everything going. To realize that there was a major component that was lacking in that. My exercise had to change.
Margaret: The MelioGuide Exercise for Better Bones program provides you with a detailed list of exercises based on your activity level and fracture risk. We identify the bones and muscles that are targeted in each exercise, provide clear directions of how to perform with safe form, as well as detailed exercise schedules.

Stronger Bones, Stronger Body Workout Video
After I produced the Exercise for Better Bones prescriptive osteoporosis exercise program I had many requests for a home workout program to complement Exercise for Better Bones. A comprehensive list of videos exist that demonstrate the exercises in Exercise for Better Bones. But even when I made those videos available, my readers and clients still wanted an easy to follow home video series that they could use several times a week. That lead to me producing Stronger Bones, Stronger Body.
Here is a sample of the exercises in Stronger Bones, Stronger Body.
