For osteoporosis, resistance exercise is more effective to arrest and reverse the progress of bone loss than is bike riding.
> As rotten as I felt today and as damp and really cold down to 27 tonight I layered up and put my spot light around my neck and the reflective vest and rod my six miles on the bike. If I don't I won't again. IF you don't use it you lose it. Only thing with me is all these years of excercise and bad osteoporosis and the back pain afterwards is maybe why I don't seem to need the benzos anymore? Too emotionally draining as no one absolutely no one is going to tell me I can't ride my bike. A bit of a personal rant. I lost my sense of taste and smell a geat pleasure gone, Husband says if he knew I'd get sick would have never married me, kids ignore me, got the lymes and still positive but not active, docs won't do labs on me only got medicaire, I'm 63 let's eliminate some of the aging population is the way I personally see it. So I'm on my own but I refuse to accept that there is not a med for the osteo. If I have to import one from another country I will. I refuse to quit, get fat and die@!!!! Rant over. Love Phillipa
