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 high until the early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels begin to drop steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the peak 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’s when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory, skeletal, and muscular strength are developed, creating 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 develops osteoporosis and may feel its difficulties in later life. Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teenagers have control of to build the best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they? New Hampshire Spine and Sport recognizes that adolescent teens do not worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions drawing their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Southern New Hampshire TEENS BUILD THE BEST BODIES POSSIBLE?
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 equipped with pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in the 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.
