Body, mind, spirit and... Poker!
There is no doubt that physical development has lots of positive health/life benefits. I think more and more people are starting to realize that and I believe at last EPT main event commentators even spoke about it. We can also see that trend among top pros (Annette Obrestad losing lately some weight and looking really...sharp , Daniel Negreanu exercising in his house etc).
I have already seen here that some of you guys are into combat sports,weight lifting or soccer and I'm curious how our great CC community spends their free time. What sports are you into? What is your lifestyle? Do you pay close attention to what you eat? How did these things improve your game? Did it reduce tilt? Do you have any routine you have to do before you hit tables? What do you suggest for live/online players? You know, basically what do you do, besides studying the game (and ofc playing) to improve your Poker. It does not have to be only physical, like the title suggests -> body, mind and spirit (reading/writing, meditation, travelling, drinking, music etc, whatever that you do)
As for me, mainly I've been lifting weights for about 4 years (nothing serious, I just enjoyed it) and doing Judo/BJJ for about 3 years. Nowadays I turned more into Yoga (I must admit, I've always thought it was for... pus**es until I tried it I've never looked back after ), bodyweight training, sometimes little jogging. I really like to do some Yoga before a Poker session, it clears my mind, gets rid of various idiotic/trash thoughts and really calms me down.
Looking forward to your responses.
