11 Dec Agility Training can Improve your Brain Power
Is your fitness program missing something? You may want to stop running in a straight line and start zig-zagging instead. A new study shows that agility training can improve your cognitive performance. “Agility training incorporates components of learning, focus, balance, and coordination,” says study coauthor Erica M. Johnson, Ph.D. This type of training can stimulate richer connections among multiple brain regions by demanding them to work together, she says.
Along with cognitive function, there are other benefits to agility training. “Adding variety to your exercise routine can help you avoid burnout and plateaus,” she says. “Agility training may be another way to help you meet your exercise goals while keeping your mind and body active.” Come join MBFF girl tribe on Fridays, do the best you can there’s no right or wrong, all you have to do is try!
