PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and stays there into the
early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels start to decline
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
best fitness levels in their 20s typically stay
physically healthy and seek less healthcare services throughout
their lives. Adolescence is the most important stage in all
our lives. It’s when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory,
skeletal, and muscular strength are formed, 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 suffer
its effects in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
demanding their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Eugene 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 arranged competition among student groups equipped 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 decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity increased even a year
after the intervention. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic makes
treatment plans for Eugene chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
