PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and stays high into the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels begin 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 during
their lives. Adolescence is the most important period in all
our lives. It’s when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory,
skeletal, and muscular strength are built, 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 acquires osteoporosis and may suffer
its difficulties in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teens
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows adolescent teens don’t
think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
demanding their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Baton Rouge 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 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 reduced. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high even a year
after the intervention. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation creates
treatment plans for Baton Rouge chiropractic patients of all ages that includes
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
