  • Osteoporosis and Resistance Training


    Love your work at BB Medicine. It has helped me personally and informs my practice with clients as a physiotherapist working with over 55's.

    Great article on Osteoporosis. I wondered if you could provide the references used for this article?

    I am particularly interested in the research that shows increases in BMD with resistance training in addition to the LiftMor trial?

    I know a lot of women that engage in pilates, which is great if they enjoy it and it keeps them moving. However in terms of BMD and muscle mass development I would imagine weight training provides greater stimulus in these regards due to the progressive loading potential. Do you think this is fair to say? Would you classify Pilates as "resistance" training?

    Cheers for your time!

    Hey there, and welcome to the forum.

    You will be able to get a response from Dr Baraki/Feigenbaum if you could pose this question under the moderated section, either under the Training or Medical Q/A.

    All the best.
