Does exercise improve memory and mental capacity?Watch
Remember every hour you’re at the gym (and all the extra time like going there, getting ready, getting changed after and coming home) is an hour you could be revising so make sure it doesn’t take over your priorities
I have definitely found that exercise is a good way to get rid of any stress whilst I am busy revising, but I think this can be applied to all sorts of hobbies/activities. It is important to have some downtime where you can clear your mind and do something other than revising, whether this is going to the gym, playing music, cooking or anything else. It also splits up heavy revision sessions and I have always found myself being more productive when I have some time away from revision.
Exercise can improve concentration in conjunction with mental and physical health etc etc. However it is doubtful there is a measurable impact on cognitive capacity and function
