Lifting weights could make you more intelligent, study suggests

Regularly lifting weights could make you more intelligent, a new study of people with the early signs of dementia suggests.

A group of people aged 55 to 86 with ‘mild cognitive impairment’ – a precursor of Alzheimer’s disease – were asked to carry out a mix of weight lifting and brain training.

While it is unclear whether this would apply more widely, the researchers said they had found a causal link between an increase in strength and better functioning of the participants’ brains.

And, on that basis, they recommended people should lift more weights so that the world would have a “healthier ageing population”. Some 135 million people are currently expected to have dementia by 2050.

So then, a fair question in a debate is "Do you even lift?"

It must not be across the board, as some of the gym bros I see share a brain between the lot of them.

Given my experience with them, that would explain some of the political idiocy of some E46 posters..
