PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and remains high until the
early 30s. That is 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 usually 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, 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 acquires osteoporosis and may feel
its effects 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?
Spinal Care Clinic recognizes that adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
drawing their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Burlington and Hamilton 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 encourage them to move early in life. One study arranged competition among student groups equipped 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 improved.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity improved for a year
after the intervention. (2) Spinal Care Clinic devises
treatment plans for Burlington and Hamilton 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!
