WEIGHT BEARING EXERCISE WITH THE NYK WEIGHT VEST BUILDS BONE
From the worlds leading universities to NASA Space Center, studies have shown that weight bearing exercise builds bone. A natural, holistic way to improve bone strength and health is with the first patented women’s weight vest by NYK.
The NYK weight vest is perfectly balanced, stylish and was created not for female body builders, but for women who want to build a lean strong body – especially strong bones to help keep osteoporosis at bay or even in many cases reverse it.
Over the last twenty years, it has been proven that weight training adds strength to the muscles and to the density of bones. Dr Christine Snow who was the Director of the Bone Research Laboratory at Oregon State University, together with other women, started a grassroots exercise program for Osteoporosis Risk Reduction. They spread the program all over Oregon as an adult education course.
The kind of results that you receive from an exercise routine have not been achieved before and they contradict what the medical community has been saying for years. Dr Snow said, “One important aspect of the study is its longevity after five years, the improvement was significant.”
ANOTHER STUDY WRITTEN IN THE BIOLOGICAL RESEARCH FOR NURSING NEWSLETTER 2020
Eighteen women over 60 yrs of age were randomly assigned to an exercise group wearing a weight vest and doing strength training for one hour three times a week, and a control group that did nothing. The weight vest group had significant changes in their bone density and in weight loss in just 32 weeks.
How to use the NYK weight vest
By wearing a weight vest during your walking time or your most active time of the day, you are getting the benefits of weight training without most of the effort. The weight vest makes it possible to easily strengthen your bones!
Weights on the ankles and wrists do nothing to help your core bones and can harm the fragile bones in those areas. You should start out with 4 pounds of weight and if you feel comfortable you can add more, though it is not necessary, as all bodies are different and you should not strain while you carry the weights. Some people start out with just a half a pound and gradually add more as they grow stronger, but the amount you carry is up to your comfort zone .
The NYK weight vest is perfect for women who have osteoporosis or who may be at risk of having osteoporosis. It’s also great for women who want to accelerate weight loss by changing fat into lean mean muscle.
There is absolutely no negative effects to the body with this kind of weight bearing exercise.
There are so many ways to incorporate the vest into your life walking, hiking, shopping, or just wear it around the house for an hour for three or four days a week, you will see a positive difference in strength and tone and energy level. And as one woman told us after you take off the vest you feel so much stronger lighter you feel as though you can fly! Add weights according to your tolerance and do take some off every month to give the body a rest and to digest its new found strength.
Robert Klapper MD Clinical Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at Cedar Sinai Medical center said, “Walking is an exercise for the joints and that what would maximize the benefits of walking is including a little bit of extra weight.”
Additional benefits of walking aside from losing weight and strengthening your heart – walking with weights is a MUST to strengthen your bones. Walking while wearing the NYK weight vest is a holistic, low impact solution that will help keep calcium in your bones and make them stronger.
