Train your muscles and you will protect you brain from stress & depression.
It has been known for long time that physical training is beneficial for the body and mind. And it is something we all also can feel. But now has the research find out that the brain will be protected from stress and depression by workout.
Current research cant really explain what is happening neurological at a depression, but new research has helped out with a key for understanding. Now they got the explanation of what is happening biochemical how workout protect the brain from stress and depression, says Mia Lindskog researcher at Karolinska Institutet. What is known earlier is that the protein PGC-11a1, increase if we train our muscles. The researches used a breeding of mice’s with high levels of the protein. And they did a test with ”normal” mice’s in a stressed environment (Such as flashing lights, high sounds, disturbed sleep etc.) The well trained mice’s(on a genetically way) didn’t show any symptoms of depression, while the normal mice’s did. What the researcher also saw was that the mice’s with higher PGC-1a1 protein level also got higher levels of the enzyme; KAT, even this in the muscles. KAT got the ability to break down kynurenin. that is to be formed during stress. What the researcher discover was that this substance (KAT)inhibits kynurenin to reach the brain, and protected from stress and depressions..And I think you all have the feeling if you are stressed and train, you will feel better afterword’s. Here you got the clinical understanding of it.
Train your muscles and protect yourself from stress and depression.

Know the autumn season is here. I really like the fresh air, and all the magnificent colours. The lowland and the mountain environment shows its best side. Get up early in the morning and see the nature be bathing is the suns gold..
Enjoy the season..
I’ve been thinking and the training and knowledge about outdoor ”know how” and its a bit of knowing the four elements. All season got its all challenges due to that. It is not easy to start a fire for example in the autumn. The wind (air) is a very important factor to count with during winter in the mountain environment. As well as the thin air at high altitude. So train and learn how to control your body during the different prerequisites. So prepare and train yourself for the autumn seasoning…At two a clock yesterday Sylarna was the coolest place in Sweden with 2.4 Celsius degrees…
The training this week has been as planned. When I write this I still got two workout left, one at the gym and one trail-running. This will end up in nine workouts. Three of them has been swimrun. Swimming towards the wind was a challenge it selves, with wave coming up in my face. This with involuntary gulp of water(Sv. Kallsup) as a result.
Swimrun a good combined training for the whole body..and a good season training to adapt to cold water and so on..
But this weeks challenge was..
Barbells training in group, one hour with barbell. Really good, and it was cover all body training. Try it you will like it, and you will feel good and reduce the stress and depressions:-) 50 lefts..
The upcoming weeks challenge will be a tough one, it will be included 5 days..(shit, this one is a real challenge..)I will give an update of it at Wednesday.
See ya soon
