PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and stays high into the
early 30s. That is 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 throughout
their lives. Adolescence is the most important stage in all
our lives. It is when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory,
skeletal, and muscular strength are developed, creating
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 factors that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Manahawkin 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 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 increased.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity improved for a year
after the intervention. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center creates
treatment plans for Manahawkin chiropractic patients of all ages that includes
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
