PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and remains high into the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels begin to drop
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
best fitness levels in their 20s typically stay
physically healthy and seek less healthcare services during
their lives. Adolescence is the most important phase in all
our lives. It is 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
teen years. BMD is the main factor in
whether a person develops osteoporosis and may suffer
its effects in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teenagers
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries recognizes that adolescent teens don’t
worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
drawing their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Manchester TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The
most efficient 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 outfitted with
pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in the
study all ended up doing 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 improved for a year
after the intervention. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries creates
treatment plans for Manchester chiropractic patients of all ages that includes
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter how
old it is!
