PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and remains there until 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 seek less healthcare services during
their lives. Adolescence is the most important stage in all
our lives. It is 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 influence in
whether a person gets osteoporosis and may suffer
its difficulties later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teens
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Pflugerville Wellness Center knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
drawing their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Pflugerville TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The best 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 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 increased.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high even a year
after the intervention. (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center creates
treatment plans for Pflugerville chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
