It is true that the bioDensity™ machine is the key to
stronger bones. We can even go so far as
to say that in many cases it will reverse Osteoporosis. Throughout the pages of this site you will see
this name show up as being the core of the Great Bones system. It seems that an explanation of what is
accomplished by this workout is in order.
We are all familiar with the current resistance training
that has been available to us for as long as any of us can remember. Go to a Gym and you can do resistance
training with free weights. You pick up
a weight that you can safely do ten to fifteen repetitions. Let’s say you use a
barbell, you lay down on a bench. Now
you take that weighted barbell and lift it off the stand, bring it down to your
chest, then lift it with your arms to full extension. Did you notice how each time you lift, it
becomes harder to get the weight to move away from your chest? Once you get it moving away it gets much
easier as you start to reach full extension.
How much weight did you lift? Fifty pounds, a hundred pounds, or maybe
even your own body weight? Did you have
spotters so that you did not risk dropping the weight on yourself? Statistics between the years of 1992 and 2007
showed that nearly one million of us ended up in hospital emergency rooms from
injuries using conventional resistance equipment.
That brings us to the bioDensity machine. What is so different about this piece of
equipment? The first thing is that in
the example above the person doing the exercise is loading their body by
picking up weight. That means that when
your muscle has reached the limit of endurance you still have to put the weight
down. Unlike free weights the bioDensity
load is self-induced. This means that
you control the amount of load being put on your body. Because you self-load this is the safest way
to impose impact level force on your muscles and thereby on your bones. You can gently release the pressure on your
body at any time you wish during the exercise.
You can and will over a short period of time begin to push loads many
times your body weight.
