PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and remains there into the
early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels begin to decline
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
best fitness levels in their 20s usually stay
physically healthy and need less healthcare services throughout
their lives. Adolescence is the most important phase 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 gets osteoporosis and may suffer
its complications later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teens
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Disc Centers Of America recognizes that adolescent teens don’t
think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
drawing their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Buffalo, NY 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 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 for a year
after the intervention. (2) Disc Centers Of America creates
treatment plans for Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter how
