Want “an enhanced ability to make decisions, resolve conflicts and focus on subjects without being distracted by competing stimuli”? Well, at least in older women, weight training does this!
I love doing leg presses (like this lady is doing in the pic)! With stronger legs, I can kneel down to floor and get back up much easier, without straining my twice-operated neck. I feel mentally sharper, too, and doing weights gives a great feeling of accomplishment.
