    Osteoporosis is essentially low bone density and people who suffer from this condition are at increased risk of fractures from falls and misadventures. So, activities that stimulate bone activity and prevent further reduction in bone density are recommended. Resistance training or impact exercises, such as walking downstairs or even jumping, are good exercises. However, depending on your age, previous experiences with exercise or other conditions, some exercises, like those discussed, may not be appropriate. Once again, you should consult with an exercise specialist and they will be able to tailor an individual program that suits you.
