Want to Sharpen Your Memory? Work Your Muscles!
Want to keep your brain sharp? Try flexing your muscles.

Some degree of memory impairment is a normal part of aging, but if you’re like most people, you want to keep your memory and cognitive abilities as “sharp” as possible as you age. Staying mentally stimulated by working puzzles and challenging your mind is one way, but moving your muscles may be just as effective.
