Swimming and Cycling – The Unseen Risk in Low-Impact Workouts & How to Counteract It

Fitness enthusiasts, take a moment to consider your exercise regimen. Swimming, cycling, and elliptical workouts are heralded for their incredible benefits – and rightfully so. These non-load bearing, low-impact activities can indeed boost cardiovascular fitness, amplify muscular strength, endurance, and maybe even burn those excess calories. But have you ever pondered what they might NOT be doing for you?

Let’s dive into some science: While these exercises are invaluable for our cardiovascular and muscular systems, there’s an aspect of our health they might be inadvertently neglecting – our BONES! Surprising, right?  Multiple studies have drawn a startling correlation between such low-impact exercises and a lack of positive effect on bone density. To be more specific, some master’s and veteran swimmers and cyclists have been found to possess lower bone density, compared to their non-athletic peers!

Now, before you jump out of the pool or off that bike, there’s no need to panic or drop these activities. Instead, consider integrating a more comprehensive approach to your fitness journey.

Introducing OsteoStrong® – your solution to this bone conundrum. It brilliantly harnesses the principle of osteogenic loading, a method that stimulates bone growth for most people.
