Neurobics combines physical activity with cognitive processes. It is a type of exercise that challenges the brain to create new, stimulating patterns to promote brain health. The challenge with including neurobics into fitness routines is that the more we have to think about an exercise, the less physically intense the exercise will be. That is why neurobics is the perfect solution to creating meaningful recovery bouts or sessions.
