PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and stays high until the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels start to decline
gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the
peak fitness levels in their 20s usually stay
physically healthy and use less healthcare services throughout
their lives. Adolescence is the most important period in all
our lives. It is when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory,
skeletal, and muscular strength are formed, creating
the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late
teen years. BMD is the main influence in
whether a person develops osteoporosis and may feel
its effects in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Wilson Family Chiropractic knows adolescent teens don’t
think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
drawing their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Millville TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The best ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as possible
is to encourage them to move early in life. One study arranged competition among student groups equipped with
pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in this
study all showed more physical activity both in in-school
and in after-school activities. Their cardiorespiratory fitness improved.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high for a year
after the intervention. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic makes
treatment plans for Millville chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter how
old it is!
