Regaining Lost Bone Mass
...  for those 45 plus ...

The program Regaining Lost Bone Mass is customized for adults aged 45 plus who understand the devastating effects the loss of bone mass can have on the functioning of their bodies, and on their activities of daily life.

  1. First, we take a quick look at the bone loss numbers.
  2. Next, there is a description, objectives, prerequisites, and structure.
  3. At the bottom of the page, you can link directly to the registration page to sign-up for the program.

Body Basics

Bone Mass Loss with Age

Bone Mineral Density (BMD) testing is most commonly done using a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) test. Measurements are taken at the hip and spine only. The more minerals present in the bone, the denser the bone appears on the X-ray. However, it cannot measure bone quality in terms of its strength or architecture.

BMD measurements are reported as either T-Scores or Z-Scores. T-Score readings are expressed as standard deviation (SD) scores above or below the average measurement of a young normal population, usually 20 to 35 year olds with peak bone mass. For example, a T-Score of -1 indicates 1 SD below the average normal for a young person of the same gender, whereas a T-Score of -2 indicate 2 SD below the same average normal.

  1. Normal: Range of 2.5 to -1 (25% gain to 10% loss in bone mass)
  2. Osteopenia: Range of -1 to -2.5 (10% to 25% loss in bone mass)
  3. Osteoporosis: Below -2.5 (More than a 25% loss in bone mass)

Every T-Score below or above 0 represents on average of about 10 to 15 percent reduction or increase in bone mass, respectively. For example, a T-Score of -2 in the hip indicates about a 20% lower bone mass than a young person with peak bone mass.

The Typical 50-Year-Old

Assume this person is now 50 years of age. This would mean that he or she has been losing about 1% of their bone mass per year between the ages of 30 and 50. Adults who eat a highly-acidic, nutrient-deficient diet and who do not perform any type of bone-loading exercises on a regular basis, sacrifice at least a 10% loss of bone mass every decade, and adults older than 50 lose even more than that, at a faster rate each year.

Therefore, by the age of 50 you may have lost up to 25% of your bone mass. This means you have crossed the threshold from osteopenia into osteoporosis. Not a good situation to be in!

Enter the Regaining Lost Bone Mass Program

Now is the time to recover the loss with our bone strengthening program! And you get to feel the strength in your movements again!

Program Description

Gains in bone strength, density, and mass are the hallmarks of this adult nutrition and exercise program! The Regaining Lost Bone Mass program is designed to rebuild the necessary bone health so you can maintain your activities of daily life and/or prepare yourself for more rigorous exercise activity.

It is great for adults, aged 45 plus, who are de-conditioned and returning to activity after a long lay off, and/or for active adults who need to improve their nutrition protocols and exercise routines for bone strengthening and maintenance purposes.

Program Objectives

The overall objectives of this program are to regain lost bone mass, as well as enhance bone size and strength throughout the body by:

  • recovering lost bone strength,
  • slowing the loss of bone mass on the internal bone surfaces, and
  • rebuilding lost bone mass on the external bone surfaces.  

Program Prerequisites

The participants in the Regaining Lost Bone Mass program need to come in with the following characteristics:

  1. Age: Adults aged 45 plus, male or female  
  2. Weight: Normal, within 10% of your set point weight
  3. Fitness Level: Foundational level, de-conditioned, or active
  4. Health Conditions: No osteoporosis
  5. Current Residence: Northern Ontario

Note: The prerequisite for the Weight-Bearing|Bone-Loading Exercise Routine III: Advanced- Level Indoor Program is the completion of the separate program entitled Regaining Lost Muscle Mass: For Those 45+.
