In the late 1800's, Dr. Julius Wolff studied bone strength and from his findings developed Wolff's Law of bone remodeling. Generally, the law states that when bone is stressed enough, it will adapt by becoming stronger. Since that time, thousands of studies have been completed based on Dr. Wolff's findings; all confirming resistance exercise to be an affective way to increase bone density.

This is the concept upon which Dr. John Jaquish, PhD created Spectrum. Spectrum is the proprietary system used in OsteoStrong centers around the World to safely increase bone strength for people through a process known as osteogenic loading.

Listed below are some of the studies, trials, and papers showing that high intensity resistance exercise improves bone density.
