So it turns out that Strength Training can have several benefits for neuroplasticity, Which is the ability of the brain to change and adapt in response to new experiences. Some of these benefits include:
- Increased brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF): BDNF is a protein that plays a critical role in the growth and survival of nerve cells in the brain. Strength training has been shown to increase BDNF levels, which may help to promote neuroplasticity and cognitive function.
- Improved cognitive function: Studies have shown that regular strength training can improve cognitive function, including attention, memory, and executive function. This is thought to be due, in part, to the increased BDNF levels and the effects of physical activity on the brain.
- Increased gray matter: Gray matter is the brain tissue that contains nerve cells. Studies have shown that strength training can lead to an increase in gray matter in areas of the brain associated with motor control, as well as cognitive function.
- Increased blood flow to the brain: Strength training can increase blood flow to the brain, which may be beneficial for neuroplasticity.
- Better mood : Strength training can also improves mood, by positively influencing mood hormones, stress hormones, and also by giving a sense of accomplishment.
All of these factors work together to help improve neuroplasticity which is essential for learning and adaptation of our brain.
