Ferenstein wrote in a post that whenever he needs a "pick-me-up", he finds a quiet corner and perform some form of body-weight exercise that jolts his heart up to at last 70 percent of the maximal beats per minute.

He's been using the brain-training experiments at Quantified Mind to test his reaction time and short-term memory after the bursts of exercise, compared with coffee.

He found that his mental performance was 12 percent better after a mini workout than on a coffee high.
