Exercise Makes You Smart

Ryan Fitzpatrick — sometimes called “Fitzmagic” — the quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, scored a 48 on the Wonderlic test in 2005 when he first came into the league. That’s the third highest score in NFL history on the exam the league uses to evaluate its players' ability to comprehend and process information.

We figure Fitzmagic has been athletic all his life, and according to a new study, that may have boosted his brainpower — and it can do the same for you.

The research, which was published in Translational Sports Medicine, looked at 13 relevant studies of people ages 18 to 35 years old who walked, ran, or bicycled. They showed that aerobic exercise for as little as two minutes and up to 60 minutes, done at moderate to high intensity, boosts attention, concentration, learning, and memory for up to two hours after you stop.

Other studies with younger and older people have confirmed that it helps for all ages.

The bottom line: If you have a challenging assignment at work or are trying to learn something new, your best bet may be to get on the stationary bike, go for a fast walk, or take a jog outdoors before settling in to complete that demanding mental task.

You can amplify the benefits — which come in part from increased blood flow and oxygenation to the brain — if you work out every day.

We say go for 30 to 60 minutes daily. That will strengthen your circulatory system and skeletal muscles, along with improving mental agility and ability.
