Ordered a vest today...I am.so excited. Hopefully it will help the bones....
Hi Patty did you order the correct vest most are for muscle men cept the NYKweightedvest which is for women to get strong bones.
I did a lot of research before I purchased. Hopefully I made a good choice. I will keep everyone updated.
I got a 8 lb. one today. Have not tried it yet. Hope it does some good.
We only can try. Hope it works. I am looking forward to getting mine.
Hi NursePatty, thanks for sharing your news. I hope you have some great results. For you and for other interested users, here is some recently updated information from the American Bone Health website about weighted vests.
Studies have shown improvements in leg strength, balance, and long-term bone density stability ...
Thanks for the information!
Can you please give more info on the vest you ordered?
I ordered mine thru BetterBones. Pretty expensive but my bones are important to me. I am also on Forteo. I have been on it for a year. I am a nurse and still work so I get plenty of walking in. I have always been active and have a great diet..I do take D3 daily. I also have a rebounder I work out on and also do a weighted hula hoop.
Hi patty I hope you are loving the vest and walking tall!
I enjoy my daily walks in my nykweighted vest and dr sez bones are doin great
I wish I could post a pix of how cute it is but good luck with all your efforts and keep strong .... see it at nykweightvest.com they have several styles too!
