Upon returning yesterday to ballet (cast and all) after just 2 1/2 weeks off, I am feeling a bit sore today. Which reminds me that if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it! While we know that is true of us physically, Ohi0 State University researchers found that lack of exercise also leads to mental/cognitive loss. In research done on COPD patients, those that maintained their doctor-prescribed exercise routine scored higher than those who became sedative after their initial 10 week workout program. Building muscle power means building brain power!
