Physical exercise improves fine motor skills and a new study from the University of Copenhagen provides a better understanding of how. Researchers demonstrated a clear benefit if you exercise before learning or honing a skill. Exercise will better help you improve and remember what you are about to learn. The same holds true if you exercise after learning. But if you exercise before and after learning, the study shows the greatest benefit. Specifically, the study suggests about ten percent improvement in people’s ability to remember learned motor skills by exercise before or after learning, and even more by a bit of exercise both times. The effects of a bit of exercise may help people undergoing rehabilitation to recover mobility and fine motor skills.
