Over at Tom’s Hardware forums, user r_manic asks:
So, anyone like to share tips on how they take care of themselves during those marathon gaming sessions?
Lots of tips followed, and the tip on staying constantly hydrated was good. But user bildo123 shared what was probably the best damn healthy gaming tip ever:
Whenever something is loading/paused etc do some of those military pushups. The one where you stand up, crouch, kick your legs out and arms forward in a pushup manner, do a full pushup, kick in your legs, stand up, repeat. Or jumping jacks during times where you can be semi-AFK like above.
Anything that lets me shoot down hordes of zombies while giving me firm arms, abs, and pecs is definitely sound advice! Are there other exercises suitable for game loading times?
