How do you lose stubborn weight and build mental muscle?
Being fit is more than simply being in shape or losing weight. It’s one of the keys to having a limitless mind. Exercise stimulates neurotransmitters, like dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins, and can play a vital role in reducing systemic inflammation.
I’m excited to welcome Sal Di Stefano to the show today. Sal has been a personal trainer since he was eighteen years old. He’s the host of the Mind Pump podcast and is the author of the book, The Resistance Training Revolution: The No-Cardio Way to Burn Fat and Age-Proof Your Body—in Only 60 Minutes a Week.
Even though we know about the mind-body connection, there’s still a misconception that somehow the two are separate. And while any activity that’s good for the body is generally good for the brain, there are some that are better than others. Listen in as Sal explains why strength training has unique attributes that make it ideal for improved brain performance and how you can use these exercises to get maximum results.
