There are many misconceptions about table sports and fitness. A lot of people do not view table sports as being the equivalent of a physical based sport like basketball or baseball because you aren’t exerting yourself in the same way. I disagree with people who laugh off table sports as not being a real sport or that you don’t need to train yourself. of course, when playing billiards or ping pong, you won’t be expending the same amount of energy or calories as a heavy game of soccer, but you are still required to be in top shape to play the game well.
I have a competitor in my tournaments who is a trim guy and he has always been my number one competition. I see him yearly. Last year, I was shocked when I saw him, he had put on about 50 pounds I’d wager and looked like a different guy. and while he was still a great shot, someone was slacking in his play. Maybe his energy or focus, or just that he couldn’t swivel and twist his body in the way that he used to be able to. That was the first time in three years that I advanced him. Obviously, it could have been anything but I feel like I should attribute it to his weight gain. I’m a pretty lean guy and that has really helped my game. in all sports. Being fit physically keeps you sharp, tuned and trained.
Recently I lost 10 pounds using my girlfriend’s bottle of skinny fiber. The reviews are amazing and the skinny fiber cost is quite cheap if you buy a 6 month supply. I think that losing weight is all about self-control, patience and practice. You need to be consistent when starting any sort of diet or weight loss program. I take these pills twice a day at breakfast and dinner and then I find myself snacking less throughout the day which is great.
Christmas is coming up in a few weeks so I advise you all to ask Santa for some skinny fiber or any other type of fiber supplement in addition to a new set of billiard balls! I plan on spending Christmas with the family and then on boxing day we’ll have a pool tournament with my buddies in the North. Merry Christmas to all of you and hope you enjoy a happy and healthy holiday remembering to train and practice and don’t forget your goals!
Happy healthy holidays from Billiards Game Stroke Trainer!
