For the first half of this year I did stretching and calisthenics before my morning practice session and hit the treadmill afterwards. Then I did a light weight set after the afternoon session. Looks like I should get back to it all...just as soon as all this wildfire smoke clears... ;)

"...physical exercise may help the brain to consolidate and store physical or motor memories...It may be that physical, aerobic exercise performed right after a memory has been formed intensifies the imprinting, Dr. Roig says. It makes the memory stronger."
"It takes a lot of devotion and work, or maybe I should say play, because if you love it, that's what it amounts to. I haven't found any shortcuts, and I've been looking for a long time."
