Mind Body Connection Study LInks Memory Improvement To Resistance Training

Your mind and your body are connected. For a number of years we have discussed that Alzheimer's patients can prevent disease and improve prognosis though exercise, now some of this research has been applied to the healthy as well. In a simple study of memory, Lisa Weinberg, a psychology graduate student at the Georgia Institute of Technology showed that brief resistance exercise done immediately after a visual learning task enhances episodic memory by about 10%. Aerobics are good for the heart and overall longevity and disease prevention, but for brain boost and even some stress reduction, pumping some iron, or getting resistance thorough machine use will actually be the ticket to better thinking. Medscape reports that the study was published in the October issue of Acta Psychologica.The study was supported in part by a grant from the Clinical and Translational Science Awards program, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Center for Research Resource. The authors report no relevant financial relationships. Acta Psychol. 2014;153:13-19. Abstract .
We suggest you visit your primary care provider to get cleared for the types of exercise and the amount of exercise you can do and get followed for the benefits to your body composition as well, meaning more muscle as less fat, so that your metabolism improves. While you improve your heart, your energy levels, your body shape, don't forget, you are improving your mind!
