PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and remains high until the
early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels start to decline
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
peak fitness levels in their 20s typically stay
physically healthy and need 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 influence in
whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may feel
its complications later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn recognizes that adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
drawing their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Ashburn 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 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 even a year
after the intervention. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn creates
treatment plans for Ashburn chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
