Exercise Your Brain

By July 13, 2023No Comments

When was the last time you tried something new?

I’m asking because it actually can make a difference in your health!

Recently I’ve been talking a lot about your muscles … and how training them can help them stay healthy.

But check this out! Your BRAIN benefits from regular training too.

The fact is, your brain continues to learn and grow as you get older – but you have to train it to maintain its “plasticity.”

The best way to do it?

DO SOMETHING NEW and DIFFERENT.

Experts say there are 3 guidelines for training to improve brain plasticity:

  • 1. Do challenging activities that are out of your comfort zone and that give your brain the chance to learn something new and get better at.
  • 2. Make sure they are complex enough to get your brain into creative and problem-solving mode. Basically, bump up against the edges of your brain’s comfort zone and do something hard!
  • 3. Choose activities that take practice. But also remember, that the goal isn’t to be perfect – instead, it’s about working towards gradual improvement.

For example, you might learn how to strength train, learn a new language, play an instrument, or make it a point to learn and make new healthy recipes every week!

If you’re ready to start working your brain through strength training and getting all of the benefits I just mentioned you can request a free workout at maxstrengthfitness.com and we’ll show you a tried and proven system that gets results in a fraction of the time most people spend in the gym. 

Thanks for watching – and until next time, be strong!
