PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and remains there into the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels begin to drop
gradually 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 period 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 factor in
whether a person gets osteoporosis and may feel
its complications later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teenagers
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP McHenry TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The
most efficient ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as imaginable
is to get them moving early in life. One study set
up 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 increased.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high for a year
after the intervention. (2) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic devises
treatment plans for McHenry 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!
