I was looking forward to visiting OsteoStrong and learning all about the ultimate bio hack along with information about bone density and overall bone health. I had the opportunity to experience a session and it was stress free, quick and fun. I didnâ€™t know how I should have dressed, and it was HOT! So, I decided against leggings and wore shorts, a t-shirt and flip flops. It was fine, and I was able to complete the activities with no problem. I was surprised at how quick the process was.
OsteoStrong is great for just about any age achieving stronger bones, muscles and balance. It takes about seven minutes once a week. You wonâ€™t even break a sweat! I am usually getting bone density screenings due to being on Depo Provera for a long period of time. One of the side effects of Depo is significant bone mineral density loss. Bone loss is greater with increasing duration of use and may not be completely reversible. Loss of bone density can lead to osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis causes bones to become fragile and more likely to break. Iâ€™m in the process of looking at other options so I can discontinue the use of Depo. I take it prophylactically to keep my hemorrhaging due to my uterine fibroids under control. Iâ€™ve been hospitalized and had blood transfusions because it was so bad. My worse case lasted eight to ten weeks long and I was in bad shape. OsteoStrong shared that in just twelve months members showed a 7.7% increase in bone density.
I was able to get on each machine: upper growth trigger, lower growth trigger, core growth trigger and postural growth trigger. Can you believe my best average for the upper growth trigger was 251 lbs. which is equivalent to me bench pressing that weight? Oh, I should mention that when I go to the gym Iâ€™m usually on the treadmill, elliptical or stair stepper. I DONâ€™T lift weights. It was surprising to me that Iâ€™m that strong. Did I mention that all this was done in under ten minutes and I didnâ€™t break a sweat!
Once my session was complete I was able to enjoy a hydromassage and relax for a few minutes. I learned so much about bone health and had a great experience. Just a reminder that OsteoStrong isnâ€™t a gym. They have a specialized technician-monitored system designed to trigger your own natural adaptive responses to grow new, healthy tissue without soreness, and sweat associated with working out at a gym. That sounds like a WIN WIN to me!
