PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers explain 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
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
high fitness levels in their 20s typically stay
physically healthy and need 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 formed, creating
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 develops osteoporosis and may feel
its complications later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Vancouver Disc Centers knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Vancouver 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 equipped with
pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in this
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 decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity increased for a year
after the intervention. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers creates
treatment plans for Vancouver chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter how
old it is!
