Jump rope. Begin with small jumps at a slow pace until you feel comfortable with the pace and your heart rate. Try to land evenly on both feet after each jump to maintain balance.
Join an aerobics class that implements a jumping routine at your local fitness center. Pace yourself when you begin, and know your limits. If you start to feel pain in your joints, bones or chest, stop immediately and consult a physician.
Hire a physical trainer who can teach you specific bone density-building techniques that involve jumping, such as plyometrics, in a safe and controlled manner. Performing certain jump-training techniques improperly can cause harm to your bones and joints such as stress fractures or dislocated joints.
Practice jump-training exercises on a trampoline to reduce the stress on your joints. Check with your doctor first if you have early stages of bone loss. Do not use a trampoline if you have osteoporosis or brittle bones. Make sure you have someone on hand to assist you in case you need help.
