In her latest blog post, Stacy explains to hear readers that what they during their twenties, thirties and forties has a direct impact on their likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s as an older adult.
She turns her readers towards a page on a CNN health blog that discusses the relationship between strength training and the disease. She advises everyone to read it and share it with their family and friends.
The study that the article places focus on was conducted at the University of British Columbia by Dr. Teresa Liu Ambrose, Director of the Aging, Mobility, and Cognitive Neuroscience department.
“In one study, 86 women between the ages of 70 and 80 were divided into three groups. Each group had a different exercise program; walking, strength training or balance/toning workouts. At the end of the six month study, each group was evaluated using MRIs to image their brains,” Stacy explains.
Each woman was also tested for Cognitive Executive functions, which included attention, memory and planning.
The study was able to conclude that the cognitive executive function and associated memory are the two traits most commonly linked to Dementia. Likewise, it was proven that women who started with a higher cognitive baseline enjoyed more benefits from strength training.
Stacy explains what this means to her readers.
“It means that you have even more reason to lift that weight, pull that band or do that push-up. It’ll make you look and feel good now and it just may keep you feeling good later,” she concludes.
