Why Exercise Should Train Your Coordination

By Sam Yang - Get similar updates here

Coordination should be a main objective in physical fitness and exercise. When we move in new ways, when we exert ourselves, our muscles produce a protein that creates new cells and connections in the brain that is critical for memory.

We knew working the body was good for the brain, we knew about the concept of muscle memory, but until recently they were theories, but new research is providing the proof.

Nothing so far improves the brain like exercise (anything synthetic comes at a high price, including increased risks for Alzheimer's and tumors).

Move a lot, challenge yourself, push yourself, and always move in new ways. If you spent your whole life in the gym but aren't any more coordinated for it, you didn't maximize the full potential of exercise.
