Tennis, golf, OCR, you name it. No matter what fuels your passion to move, you can build the mind-muscle connection that helps you stay on your toes and maximize performance with this total-body upgrade.
For a long time, science believed that the adult brain was incapable of growth. When brain tissue was damaged or destroyed, that was that. As a result of incredible research and discoveries in the field of neuroscience and the study of neuroplasticity, we now know that the adult brain does grow new cells, and that movement can contribute to this growth in a couple of ways.
First, high intensity training exercises increases our level of blood acidosis (you may know it as the burn). Movement at this intensity is related to the release of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) — a chemical that stimulates the growth of new brain cells.
Second, multi-directional movement requires the brain to organize movement patterns. Getting different body parts working together creates new neural pathways that make us more coordinated and efficient.
This is the workout to get all of your body parts working together, so that you can do all the activities you want to do. There’s a warm-up and a working block. During the working block, do as many reps as possible to feel the burn—and feed your brain.
