PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and remains there until the
early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels begin to decline
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
high fitness levels in their 20s usually 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 built, forming
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 gets osteoporosis and may feel
its complications in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teens
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Layden Chiropractic knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Plainville 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 get them moving early in life. One study arranged competition among student groups equipped 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 reduced. The leisure-time
physical activity improved for a year
after the intervention. (2) Layden Chiropractic devises
treatment plans for Plainville 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!
