Do You Even Lift Bro?


Do you even lift bro? Haha, just kidding, but really you should! As a passionate lifter I can say that regular weightlifting has made a positive impact on my life in a multitude of ways both directly and indirectly.

What if I told you it could actually make you smarter? (Crazy I know) but it’s not just for meatheads and backwards-hat wearing bro dawgs; many studies have shown that lifting consistently promotes healthy brain function by stimulating the release of norepinephrine, a stress hormone that plays a vital role in memory.

Tired of forgetting to grab your keys in the morning? Can’t quite recall “that one dudes” name? Maybe an important birthday? Maybe your own name? If this sounds like you don’t worry there’s hope, Mr. Squat rack and the Dumbbell twins have exactly what you need!

Now, I’m not suggesting you’ve got to become the next Mr. or Ms. Olympia (unless you have an affinity for grilled chicken and blenders) you can see benefits with as little as 20 minute sessions a day! Not a bad deal for being stronger AND smarter. So what’re you waiting for?! Get out there and throw some weight around! Your brain (and your Bae) will thank you later.
