I sure hope it does. Recently, I dug an unused treadmill out of our basement (literally dug it out of the mess down there LOL) and I set it up directly behind my computer chair. My plan is to walk on the treadmill while I play my tournaments, however my big problem at the moment is that I have a wired mouse and the cable won't reach my treadmill... so I guess I have to change to a wireless mouse first.
I recently went back on the greatest diet I've ever discovered, Keto... lost 30 pounds already from my weight high point, and that's without any exercise at all. But I still want to lose another 20 lbs off my frame and be able to see those stomach muscles for the first time in probably 40 years (I turn 58 on Saturday). I know if I don't do it now, at this stage of my life, I'm gonna regret it. I let myself go for a few decades but the fun is over now, I'm dedicated and motivated to do this!!
I think that being physically active is important not only for poker but also essential for life. You have to move and live actively every day. If this is missing, the effects can be bad for the body, during a meal the client has the necessary ingredients for the proper functioning of our body. Yes, I recommend physical activity It certainly won't hurt our game.
Yes, of course ... I think it is very necessary and healthy to do physical activities ... and people who play poker have a hard time making time for these activities ... we must find the time to avoid becoming obese and lazy ...
how do you think? Does physical activity help us play poker better?
I dont think while you play you should be working out in between hands. I like to stand up and watch only because too much sitting is not very good hahaha. But poker is a game of super focus and anything that divides your attention too much can hurt you more than anything.
Definitely yes !!! If you are in good physical shape, you will be able to maintain maximum concentration for longer, which is very important, especially for playing in long tournaments !!! During physical exertion, the blood flow to the brain increases, if this does not help you think better, then it certainly will not harm !!!
Not sure about activity, but a balance of some other activity other than poker. If you focus on just poker (or any one thing like stock trading) and it goes south, it ruins you for days or more. e.g. can't sleep, can't work effectively etc
Most tourneys are too long and this is not good for ones health. I go for at least a one mile ski every day (138 days in a row as of yesterday). Yes I live in a place where winters are rather long. There is a blizzard forecast for tomorrow with wind gusts up at 90 km/hr so if I don't show up for the cardschat freerolls I have literally blown away in the wind trying to extend my consecutive skiing streak.
Of course, if it can help us in our game because it helps us to release stress and anxieties so as not to bring them to the gaming table, it is also good for our health since we spend many hours sitting playing poker and it can make us sedentary in the long term and our body needs physical activity for our health.
Certainly. Regardless of whether you play live or online - the player hardly moves. Nevertheless, the brain in particular uses a lot of energy to stay focused (well, for some freeroll players this is not true). If you choose a diet that is too high in calories and you don't get enough exercise, obesity is inevitable. The result: you move even less. The circulation, digestion, lungs, all muscles or the whole body are trained by movement and contribute to physical balance, which in turn ensures mental balance. I therefore find exercises very important, especially if you sit for a long time and very often and "only work with your brain" on a computer. So, leave the car in the garage more often and use the bike
I cannot say or deny that your poker game will improve due to the fact that you will play more sports, but I know one thing, you need to take a break from a long game of poker, otherwise your brains will get washed out, and if you need to go for a run or go to the gym, then of course this is one benefit in all aspects

physical activity contributes to the nutrition of vital organs such as the brain. Consequently, it helps to think better. Just before the game, I don't think it's worth loading the body with physical activity that leads to fatigue.
Absolutely you need physical activity -- most times, the better your physical condition, the better your mental capabilities . . . Also when I play poker every hour to two hours I get up and walk around if I am in a cash game to get the blood flowing. If I am in a tournament I use the break time to get exercise. We are fortunate our poker room is also a dog track so there are stadium seats and I am able to walk up and down the stadium stairs for a quick bit of exercise and fresh air . . .
