Stronger Legs Make A Sharper Mind

Just want to share this New York Times article with you, especially if you need some motivation to hit the gym. 

Muscular power, especially in the legs — which are the largest muscles in the body — is widely accepted as a marker of healthy aging. Older people with relatively powerful leg muscles get around better than those with weak legs. They also tend to have sharper minds, studies show.

A new study has found that

of the 324 twins, those who had had the sturdiest legs a decade ago showed the least fall-off in thinking skills... on average, a muscularly powerful twin now performed about 18 percent better on memory and other cognitive tests than her weaker sister.

Now go get some workout done.  Have a great day!
