For the first time in India, Be Fitastic™ brings to you Osteoblast Training®,founded by Chris Williams MSc, CSCS, PGCE.
Osteoblast Training® is a program which recognizes the importance of bone boosting training for all ages and populations.
In India, osteoporosis is highly prevalent, with an estimated 30 million women diagnosed to have osteoporosis. In a study by The Indian Society for Bone Mineral Research found that 20% of Indian women over 40 suffer from osteoporosis or brittle bones, while another 65-70% suffer from osteopenia or weak bones.
This categorically illustrates that strength and conditioning for bone health must to be integrated into our physical exercise regime in order to reduce the risk of or even prevent these metabolic disorders.
A common often misleading notion is that bone health training is only for the older post-menopausal populations.If the science tells us that our peak bone mass is accrued in our early years, then why wait until we are older to train our bones? Wouldn’t it be more beneficial to train our bones when we are younger and our bone cells (osteoblasts) are more receptive to training? We now have a better understanding of the biomechanics of bone and how it responds to exercise/physical activity.Indeed, Osteoblast Training™ can enhance the strength of older bone and reduce the risk of fragility fractures and thus lead to a better quality of life.
