Lifting iron helps prevent brain degeneration, study finds | Men’s Health

A new study has found that weightlifting can protect the parts of the brain affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Conducted by University of Sydney, the findings showed that six months of heavy lifting resulted in the slowing of neurodegeneration and showed cognitive improvement in people with mild cognitive impairment. These benefits also continued in those who participated in the study despite stopping the workout routines. Those who performed cognitive training along with the physical aspect did not see significant results after eight months.
