PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and stays there into the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels start to decline
gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the
peak fitness levels in their 20s usually stay
physically healthy and use 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 formed, forming
the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late
teens. BMD is the main influence in
whether a person gets osteoporosis and may suffer
its complications 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 lifetime. (1) Do they?
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
drawing their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Ottawa 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 ended up doing 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 improved for a year
after the intervention. (2) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider makes
treatment plans for Ottawa chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
