Thank you for completing my quiz. The objective of the quiz was to recommend an exercise program for you that took into account your bone health. However, you indicated that you do not have medical clearance to start an exercise program.
I have three recommendations for you.
Your healthcare professional has your best interest in mind. I strongly encourage you to follow their advice.
Our book, Exercise for Better Bones, will allow you to ease into an exercise program at a comfortable pace. You will learn the “do’s and don’ts” of exercise and movement, safety tips, and other important information.
In addition, Exercise for Better Bones has detailed exercise schedules (appropriate for your level) for you to follow. I recommend you bring your copy of Exercise for Better Bones and your schedule when you begin working with a local therapist.
I encourage you to explore the Balance, Daily Activity and Posture Guides. These Guides provide beneficial guidance on strength training, weight-bearing/aerobics, and flexibility. Spend time reading and reviewing these guides.
Come back once you and your medical professional are ready for you to start an exercise program.
