I’ve been training in the martial arts almost as long as I’ve been gaming. Started in the traditional arts (Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, Judo), then moved into more “sport-like” arts (competitive TKD, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, etc.). These days I get in 2-3 classes per week. I’ve also picked up a serious yoga habit (2-3 sessions/week). And I walk to and from work everyday (~2 miles each way).
I get bored with most gym workouts because I need something much more technically focused. I also recently had knee surgery (from a BJJ injury), so I can’t run anymore or do anything too high impact. It’s a challenge, but I’m stubborn and slowly figuring it out.
And for those focusing more on weight loss/control, portion size and limiting sugary drinks (soda, beer, juice) is key! Eating habits have a way of creeping up on me, so every so often I stop drinking beer and target 800 calories per meal, and within two months I will lose 15-20lbs and drop an inch or two from my waist!
