Bone Builders is an exercise program sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension with the objective of building stronger bones to prevent or reverse osteopenia and osteoporosis to prevent fractures which cause so much debility as we age. Everyone starts losing bone mass by age 40 but women have a higher rate following menopause. This class is designed for women over 65 and men over 75 but is open to anyone who wants to increase their bone mass and prevent fractures. The exercises participants will do put stress on the bones most often fractured (hip, wrist, shoulder, spine) and have been shown to induce the development of stronger bones. Zoom, via an email invitation from the instructor, and will receive instruction during a 1-hour session. Presented in collaboration with Sullivan 180.
