Links to Exercise Plans
I'm continuing to gather resources, although I find myself remembering enough exercises to make up a routine without using any of them as I exercise. I continue to do yoga every day and weight training 3 days a week. I wish I could afford a personal trainer, but I'm grateful for the information freely available online.
VeryWell.com has an illustrated list of 10 that provide a whole body workout (though I don't do the last one at all) that is very doable and includes instructions for increasing the difficulty level as you are able. They also have a 30-minute whole body exercise plan. It's 16 steps, and I don't do #s 14 or 15.
AmericanBoneHealth.org has an exercise plan that's easy to do and helpful in strengthening the whole body. There are 15 exercises in the series, and they include some old favorites like the bridge and the pelvic tilt and squats and some I'd never done before.
MelioGuide.com has lists of appropriate exercises for people with osteoporosis. They are divided into ability levels and most -but not all- have links to instructions. There are numerous videos demonstrating the exercises she recommends at her Youtube channel.
