PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and remains high into the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels start to decline
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
high fitness levels in their 20s usually stay
physically healthy and use less healthcare services throughout
their lives. Adolescence is the most important stage 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
teens. BMD is the main factor in
whether a person gets osteoporosis and may suffer
its effects in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teenagers
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
drawing their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP St. Francisville 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 outfitted 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 even a year
after the intervention. (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville devises

nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
