Effects of Strength Training : 6 - Brain :

6 - Brain
On the other hand, the brain benefits from an increase in blood flow. Immediately, the brain cells will begin to function at a higher level. You will feel more alert and alert during exercise and more focused afterwards. When you train regularly, the brain gets used to this frequent increase in blood and adapts by activating or deactivating certain genes. Many of these changes stimulate brain cell function and protect against diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and general age-related brain aging. 

Exercise also triggers an increase in chemical messengers in the brain called neurotransmitters, which include endorphins, often cited as the cause of the mythical "feeling of happiness and pleasure" after training. The brain also releases neurotransmitters like dopamine and glutamate, to allow the movement of arms and legs for example, as well as gamma-aminobutyric acid or GABA, a neurotransmitter that slows things down, to keep you moving in a harmonious and controlled way. You will also feel better with an increase in serotonin, another neurotransmitter well known for its role in mood and depression.
