How many posts have we all seen in the last couple years along the lines of “6 Easy Tips for Raising MMR,” “This One Simple Trick Will Boost You 3 Divisions,” “15 Things Diamond Players Do That Bronze Players Don't”? It's gotten to the point where seeing one elicits nothing but groans and rolled eyes – yes, everyone gets it. Call MIAs. Don't rage. Ward. Just play better. Basically, anyone who cares to improve has already heard it all before. But there's one angle that I've seen spring up more and more lately: people have begun paying more and more attention to the things you can do outside of the game to improve your play in-game.
The precursor of this was Snoopeh's #GetFitWithSnoopeh campaign – knowing the importance of both regular exercise and working off excess energy after a game, Snoopeh started to popularize the idea of incrementally increasing physical activity. A few sit-ups while in queue, some push-ups here and there, every little bit goes a long way. Snoopeh is a player who's always kept his health in mind, as evidenced by the fact that going to the gym was one of the last things he gave up in order to practice 14-15 hours a day for the 2014 Summer Split. To that end, he tried to spread the word to players that physical health is as important as mental clarity when playing League (or when doing anything, really).
