PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and stays there until 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
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, 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 acquires osteoporosis and may suffer
its difficulties later in 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?
Malverne Health & Wellness recognizes that adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
drawing their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Malverne 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 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 improved.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios reduced. The leisure-time
physical activity improved for a year
after the intervention. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness devises
treatment plans for Malverne chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter how
old it is!
