Lifting heavy is awesome, just use caution and don't hurt yourself.
I mostly do single sided strength training with free weights and kettlebells that involve a lot of core strength for stability.
Sets of 8-12 for most exercises.
Pistol squats - bodyweight
One leg dead lifts - 44# (my favourite kettlebell)
Bulgarian split squats - 44#
Turkish get ups - 20#
Step ups - 44#
Pull Ups with varying hand holds - body weight
TRX rows - body weight
One arm rows - 35#
Push ups - body weight/sometimes elevated feet
Chest flys - 20# just started doing this one again
Other favourite bodyweight exercises
Hanging knee raises
And last but not least yoga, lots of yoga!
Keep it up, your strong bones will thank you!
