Are you more of a “leftie” or a “rightie”? That is, which side of your brain is more developed – the “visual and creative” right hemisphere or the “logical” left hemisphere? X-Train Your Brain is a brain exercise program designed by Corinne Gediman and Dr. Francis Crinella, two experts in the field of brain function and fitness. Each book in this series works on the proven principle that mental muscle, much like physical muscle, can be gained and maintained through an exercise regimen.
First, you’ll take a brain assessment to see which side of your brain is more dominant and which side needs to be strengthened. Then, you’ll start the X-Train program, which parallels a physical workout routine at your gym. This volume is Level 1: Basic Warm Up, which helps you begin to exercise unused brain muscle. Check out the other currently available volume in this series, Level 2: Building Core Strength, and upcoming: Level 3: Increasing Stamina, and Level 4: Accelerating the Pace. Just as athletes achieve peak physical performance through crosstraining, so, too, do brain athletes. Cross-training your brain makes perfect sense given the brain’s own natural anatomy. In X-Train Your Brain: Basic Warm Up, you’ll do exercises to enhance the left brain’s skills in verbal abilities, logic, and linear problem solving, as well as the right brain’s skills in visual perception, spatial relationships, and creative problem solving. By doing this cross training you will get a whole-brain workout that will keep you alert and prevent memory decline and sluggish thinking. So, what are you waiting for? Let the games begin!
