Brain Training – Multitasking Brain Brawn & Health

Brain Training

Brain training while exercising…..Multitasking that is proven to build  mental muscle and physical health.

Think you are too busy with work , no time to exercise, too tired and no energy to exercise?

brain training best in corporate healthThink again. Let’s look at how achieving our health goals is brain training. We already know its a life saver. And if we have no life….then I guess time is an irrelevant variable.

No Gym required…..brain training can be performed anywhere.

Brain training requires  the neurons in the brain to:

  • Form new neurons – neurogenesis
  • Change and reorganize continuously to meet the dynamic demands of the internal and external environment is termed neuronal plasticity, or neuroplasticity.

We have hundreds of studies and meta-analyses that demonstrate a direct support of cognitive strength with physical activity….faster speed of processing, better memory and executive function. For years I have known I do my best thinking while exercising. Those who know me – know my expression “Let me cardio on it”

Focusing on Neurological Training and Physical Activity While Working out.

Those who strength train know these key factors in muscle hypertrophy. The great news is time to exercise is also time for building brain brawn.

Ingredients to  brain training, Neuroplasticity and Muscle strengthening:

•Repetition

•Intensity

•Timing (Coordination)

•Difficulty

•Specificity

•Salience

Neuroplastic training is accomplished working the brain and the muscles at the same time. 

This is where workstations are so valuable. I have an indoor bike with a workstation. Using my workstation I accomplish:

  • time to exercise…even on top of gym time
  • build my knee strength…motion is lotion
  • get a cardio respiratory workout – deep oxygenation
  • Get my work done
  • nurture my neurons by causing left brain, right brain, multiple areas of my brain to play nicely together.
  • Feel seriously great and productive, feel energized – what a reward

Many years ago I had the privilege of meeting a world renowned surgeon from NIH. We shared a good laugh discovering we were both on the gym floor at the same time bright and early every morning. His words will always emanate with me…”I would not think of doing surgery without my morning workout…”

Muscle and Blood glucose control.

None of us are above diabetes. We are all possible candidates. If we all knew how vital our muscle mass is in blood sugar control and diabetes prevention – I am sure more of us would make time to exercise.

Depression:

The brain of depressed people processes data much slower. Our research institutions agree

the correct exercise, is a vital component to the control of depression. Depression can hamper our memory.

The correct exercise can help reduce the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol can destroy brain cells.

Physical activity is vital to circulation as we all know for heart health – but it is also vital to brain circulation…..hydration, bringing glucose to the frontal lobe, hormonal synthesis……

Refer to “Healthy Heart Practices also Benefit the Brain” Alzheimer’s & Physical Wellness.

This is just a teaser. There is vast, fascinating research on brain training, exercise and neuroplasticity. When hiring a health coach, fitness professional – make sure they are well versed in exercising body and brain simultaneously to maximize workout time, and the many benefits of exercise. You will never say no time for exercise again.
