Build Muscle Strength
We target muscles surrounding the bones, leading to improved muscle strength and endurance. Strong muscles provide additional support to the skeletal system, reducing the risk of falls and fractures. By increasing muscle mass and strength, slow weight training helps maintain overall bone health and reduces the impact of osteoporosis.
Enhance Joint Stability
Osteoporosis can weaken the joints, making them more susceptible to injury. At Countdown Fitness, we focus on controlled movements, which enhances joint stability and promotes better alignment. Strengthening the muscles around the joints helps to stabilize them and reduces the risk of joint-related complications.
Increase Bone Mineral Density
Osteoporosis is characterized by low bone mineral density, making the bones fragile and susceptible to fractures. Slow weight training has been shown to increase bone mineral density by stimulating bone formation and reducing bone loss. The progressive overload applied during slow resistance training signals the body to deposit more minerals in the bones, resulting in increased bone density over time.
