Physical exercise is not difficult for me, except for doing splits, but I'm a man and men aren't as good in gymnastics as women (I still respect the sh** out of female athletes who can stretch their legs at a 45 or 20 degree angle).

Mental exercise. With physical exercise, once you learn how to power through it, is not that difficult. Mental exercise, however, sometimes requires just the right conditions (good amount of sleep, no distractions, etc.) to work well, and there are few ways to get around this.

In my opinion it's physical exercise because i'm lazy at it. It's so much easier for me to go over high level math problems, read a challenging book, and play puzzle games. However, when it comes to doing my routine of stretching, lifting weights, and cardio(swimming) I am so fucking beat afterwards but it's fun. Unfortunately, as it stands now I'm working my brain more than my body...truly sad but I'm shooting for balance .

This is actually a hard question. I said mental because after a while of those sodoku puzzles my brain and eyes hurt.

I adapt much easier to mental exercises, and I'm typically a calm person in about any situation. Physicality has never been my strong point, but that doesn't go to say I'm not fit at all, just much more challenging.

Sudoku puzzles are challenging to do.

It was close for me, because as has been said physical activity is both. Mental activity could be both in a way if you inlcude ability to fight off fatigue/sleepiness as a form of physical strength. In the end though I went for mental exercise. As there are many mental issues challenges that can cripple people's ability to do anything. Mental exercise can become overwhelming for those who don't know how to do with it and challenges can happen everyday. I feel it is alot easier to improve ability to deal with physical activity than mental...

But overall I feel there is no right answer here as you can't always seperate both physical and mental exercise!

Mental... because you don't know what the hell to expect or what would happen!

Physical is more forward and clear imo.

That's kind of a hard question because it depends on the conditions of what you're preparing your mind or body for and both have their easy points and hard points. It also depends on the individual for some find physical easier than mental and others vice versa but honestly for me a mental challenge would be easier to do but does that mean I can't take on a physical challenge? No.

I think mental exercise just because I have been out of school for a while and it is hard to sit down and study like that. Physical exercise is ok as long as you understand your own personal physical limits and know when to push your limits, and when to stop.
