Several studies have demonstrated that exercise helps to reduce or prevent cognitive deterioration among older adults, and recent studies have further examined the effects of resistance exercise training on cognition. The purpose of this review is to examine the role of resistance exercise training on cognition in healthy older adults. Specifically, we describe the definition, health benefits, and the design of resistance exercises training. We also review the research related to resistance exercises and cognition, and have found that this exercise modality may enhance specific cognitive performances. Next, we examine the potential mechanisms underlying resistance exercise and cognitive enhancement. Finally, we consider potential therapeutics and recommendations for further research on resistance exercise training and cognition in older adults.
