Q. Why should you love working out your legs? A. Fitter Legs= Fitter Brain
Apparently if you want fewer "empty spaces in the brain" you should build sturdy, strong legs.
--In tests with identical twins the study found that the twin with the well-built legs scored, on average 18% higher on cognitive and memory than their thin legged twin. ( Study was conducted on 324 identical twins.)
Key points in the article, the twin with the stronger legs showed the following:
* Scored 18% higher on cognitive and memory tests
* Get around better and are more active
* Tend to have sharper minds compared to their twin
* The least fall off of their thinking skills
