PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and stays there until the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels start 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 need less healthcare services throughout
their lives. Adolescence is the most important phase in all
our lives. It’s 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
teens. BMD is the main factor in
whether a person gets osteoporosis and may suffer
its complications later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Carrolltown TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The best 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 showed 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 even a year
after the intervention. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation devises
treatment plans for Carrolltown 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!
