You may think more clearly when you exercise, but for the best results, leave your problems at the gym door. Research published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology found that when people tried to solve math puzzles while performing shoulder moves, they stopped lifting sooner and felt more tired than they did without the intellectual demands. "Physical and mental tasks activate similar areas of the brain," says study coauthor Ranjana Mehta, Ph.D., of Michigan Technological University. "By doing them simultaneously, you limit your ability to carry out either properly."
Your action plan: Focus on the exercise at hand (are you letting those hips sag during plank?) and save the solution sleuthing for your post-sesh shower. You'll maximize the benefits on your muscles and your mind.
Sometimes the best steps for success are small ones. Do one of these easy wins each day to put your progress on warp speed
Add one easy win to each day and get ready for your best year ever!
