On August 28th, Lorna Kleidman, creator of the kettlebell training program KettleX, reacts to an article published for Med Page Today which discusses how bone health in premenopausal women can be improved by moderate physical activity.
According to the article, a study conducted by Mohammed-Salleh Ardawi, Ph.D., and his colleagues at the University of Saudi Arabia suggests that premenopausal women can improve their bone health by completing a moderate amount of exercise each week. The article explains that, “Sclerostin is a glycoprotein produced almost exclusively by osteocytes that decreases bone formation, while serum-insulin-like growth factor-1 (s-IGF-1) increases bone matrix deposition and enhances osteoblast recruitment.” According to the article, women who clocked in an average of 120 minutes of exercise within a week had much higher levels of serum-insulin-like growth factor and much lower levels of serum sclerostin.
Lorna Kleidman, a fitness trainer who teaches various kettlebell exercises, can attest to the study with incredible results from her older female students. Kleidman has seen significant improvement to the health of the women who participate in her kettlebell classes. In addition to reducing body fat and increasing definition, Kleidman has noticed that her students’ exercising has improved strength and can see how students have grown to move more fluidly.
Kleidman’s students demonstrate how exercise serves to strengthen bones and keep bodies moving gracefully. The Med Page Today article goes on to explain that “In the first study's measures, serum sclerostin was significantly lower in participants with the highest levels of physical activity versus participants with the lowest, while s-IGF-1 and seven of eight other bone turnover marker hormones were significantly higher in those with highest versus lowest physical activity output.”
Lorna Kleidman is a Three-Time World Champion and World Record holder in kettlebell sport and the most decorated kettlebell athlete in the country. She developed the innovated methods used in KettleX as a way to bring the benefits of the bells to everyone in an easy to use, comprehensive and fun format. Lorna has been teaching individuals and group classes for the past six years.
