Most teenagers wake up in the morning, have their breakfast, then go to school. But do you know how much better you would feel if you exercised before school?
I used to do the same as most of you, but then tried going for an early morning run. I felt so much better.
You may ask ” but what kind of exercise is the best?”
- Well, Resistance Training and Lifting Weights Can Improve Memory
In October 2014, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology found that an intense bout of resistance training for as little as 20 minutes can enhance episodic memory, also known as long-term memory in healthy young adults.
I am not just talking about boys. However boys can especially benefit from regular physical activity according to a September 2014 study from University of Finland found that physically active school transportation related to academic skills and may be beneficial for the development of reading skills in boys.
Even just going for a 20 minute walk, the brain becomes much more active and is able to learn a lot better.
Just to finish off, gym is also beneficial after school as it has shown to improve cognitive function (reasoning,memory, attention and language) according to a study in September 2014, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The bottom line here is that it is highly recommended to exercise before school.
