Here is a quick 8 minute segment I came across on CBC Radio; it was a Quirks and Quarks episode called “Weight-lifting Is Good For The Ageing Brain”.

Inspires me a bit even more to keep exercising, and I don’t (yet) qualify for being a geriatric. Let’s just keep the loose-fitting clothes on please ladies and gentlemen – no need for just the thong when you are doing your sets.
