62 - Why Your Brain Matters - Exercise and The Brain Part 1

 

We are always talking about muscles in the fitness world.

Don’t get me wrong. Muscles are great. Their connections across joints to produce movement, the aesthetic appearance of healthy muscularity, and the fact that they actually burn when you exercise…I get it. But are they the only parts that benefit when we move our bodies in a way that creates positive stress?

Well, your heart gets stronger and pumps more blood per beat when you exercise. Your lungs become more efficient at exchanging carbon dioxide and oxygen. Resistance training can even elevate almost all of your liver enzymes for up to 7 days! Just to name a couple non-muscles…

But what if I told you that exercise’s benefits for muscles, heart, lungs and liver are actually tiny compared to its effect on your most important organ of all? Well, the most impressive studies in the fitness world all agree: exercise changes your brain.

Let’s talk about how!
