30-Minute Strength Workout to Prevent Osteoporosis for Women Over 40

Osteoporosis, which literally means porous bone, is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased.

And, this loss of bone occurs silently and progressively. Often there are no symptoms until the first fracture occurs.

The leading cause of osteoporosis is a lack of certain hormones, particularly estrogen in women and androgen in men.

Women, especially those older than 60 years of age, are frequently diagnosed with the disease.

However, those of us in menopause (or through it) also have lower estrogen levels – making our risk factors go up for osteoporosis.

The best way to build our bone? Strength training exercises and higher impact moves.

So… I married the two for this workout, giving you the perfect workout to prevent osteoporosis, while also toning our muscles.
