PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and stays high until the
early 30s. That’s 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 typically stay
physically healthy and use less healthcare services during
their lives. Adolescence is the most important phase in all
our lives. It’s when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory,
skeletal, and muscular strength are developed, forming
the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late
teens. BMD is the main factor in
whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may suffer
its effects in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Chiropractic Care recognizes that adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Chicago TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The best ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as imaginable
is to encourage them to move early in life. One study set
up 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 increased.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity increased even a year
after the intervention. (2) Chiropractic Care makes
treatment plans for Chicago chiropractic patients of all ages that includes
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
