What Happens to Our Brain When We Exercise?

It's already a common knowledge about what happens to our body when we submit it to a physical activity or exercise. We sweat and we fatigue, breakdown our muscles and recover to become stronger, or our body becomes injured. But aside from the physical effects of any activity, working out or involving ourselves in any form of physical exercise also has a great impact in our brain activity or neural fitness.

Men's Health Urbanathlon and Festival 2014

Fact: Men's Health Philippines Urbanathlon and Festival is the first obstacle-laden race in the Country, and has been challenging the brave ones for 9 full years already.

This coming November 2014, MHUF will again test and challenge the endurance of the participants as the event goes further to a more challenging, scenic, urban backdrop at the Nuvali grounds in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. The signature race will have three categories, each of which will be climbed, crawled and jumped through 9-different obstacles laid across the route, together with the natural elevations and rolling terrains from dirt roads, even pavements, and muddy trails of Nuvali.

But don't let these barriers scare you from joining as Men's Health Philippines will also offer an Urbanathlon Bootcamp on October, 2014 in partnership with Gold's gym to help you prepare and train the right way and try out the obstacles before race day, best of all, this is open to the public.

For a more specific training plan, you may also grab a copy of the September 2014 issue of Men's Health where 60-day routine that will help you get race ready is outlined.
