I've added basketball to the my routine

May 9, 2016 3:40pm CST
Apart from the shoes Dad gave me, He also included two basketball in the box. I almost didn't use them because it lacked air. Good thing mom's friend who's a cyclist has an air pump and volunteered to fill it up. When I had my first try, I practice some dribbling and I realized fingers aren't long enough to make the grip on the ball. Then the next day I tried to do some dribble and shooting at the court, my arm had a little sore because I didn't stretch that much. But It was a good exercise, so good I didn't realize I was doing it for an hour.

What? Your fingers are not long to grip the ball? I think your dribbling skills are not yet ripe, bro, because even though your fingers are short, you can still hold and handle a basketball.

I haven't played basketball in years so yeah, I don't expect to be better, and besides, it's just some sport i add in my routine and something just for an exercise.

The best kind of exercise is when you're just having fun!

Lucky you man! I've played basketball many years ago as a kid but then decided its not for me. Height is the problem! Haha but I enjoy collecting and wearing basketball shoes, the best one I have is the kd6, it looks really good.

I don't think I've joined any kind of sports affiliated competition, I just did because I had this ball and it was just exercise, I don't even have a basket ball shoes @flipitup

Playing a sport as well as an exercise to the body. Double benefit. Sounds good.

Yeah, but I didn't get that much sweat after an hour, but It's my fault for not doing the stretching first. @MGjhaud

Hello @Corbin5 well, I could improve my shooting, but for my dribbling, I don't think i can compete even with a simple game with some one.
