COMBAT OSTEOPOROSIS: Skeletal Fitness 2 by Mirabai Hollandâ: Interval Cardio/Strength, addresses agility and fall prevention issues associated with osteoporosis.
The DVD includes 10-minute intervals of weight-bearing cardio dance movements alternated with intervals of weight bearing and resistance bone-loadingupper body strength exercises. The routine helps prevent or manage osteoporosis, protects the cardiovascular system, strengthens and sculpts all at once.
“I decided to turn Skeletal Fitness into a series of DVDs because osteoporosis is a huge age-related issue that’s shaping up to be a monumental problem,” Mirabai says. “With 12,000 baby boomers turning 65 daily and with half of women over the age of 50 projected to have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime, we women need to do everything we can to stave off this ugly disease.
“We’ve known since the ’70s that bone loading works. Studies with tennis players show that bones in the racquet arm grow stronger and more dense than the bones in the non-racquet arm, just as a result of whacking a ball back and forth. So my expanded Skeletal Fitness program is a fun, easy-to-do form of bone-loading.”
Mirabai adds, “We can reduce the impact of osteoporosis in much the same way that seatbelts have reduced injuries in car crashes. Remember, an ounce of prehab is worth a pound of rehab!”

I liked the combination of simple cardio and free weights. It will complement the other Skeletal Fitness DVD by Ms Holland

Wasn't sure I'd like it but it's one of the best, simple cardio/exercise workout DVD!
