Western society faces is the most unhealthy we’ve ever been. It’s reached epidemic proportions: depression, anxiety, poor focus and sensorium issues, chronic stress, and diseases of chronic stress (like diabetes). The solution is simple—exercise and healthy eating.
In this episode, I will be going through 17 studies on how exercise influences and improves these factors. I will cover how it works, and how to develop an exercise program from the perspective of a doctor, not just for body sculpting.
Some things I am covering:
Strength training decreases depression
Strength training increases cognitive function
Fitness decreases risk of dementia
Exercise increases BDNF
Strength training and exercise in treatment for diabetes
