I’m always looking to discover new data and studies that can help expand my knowledge and improve my health & fitness. This past week I’ve found several interesting ones that are great for those of you who enjoy a little scientific reading. Enjoy!

A study from the American Academy of Neurology released a study that talks about how exercise helps improve thinking skills. This is yet another article that supports the role of exercise in cognitive function and thinking. Science Daily


This study discusses how short resistance workouts increase of muscle mass and better insulin sensitivity in overweight men.  Medical Xpress
