PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and remains there until the
early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels begin to decline
gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the
high 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’s 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 influence in
whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may feel
its complications in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teenagers
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Cross Chiropractic Center recognizes that adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
drawing their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Sandy Springs 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 encourage them to move early in life. One study set
up competition among student groups outfitted with
pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in this
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) Cross Chiropractic Center devises
treatment plans for Sandy Springs chiropractic patients of all ages that includes
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
