Shape Up Playing Basketball - Basketball can be a very intense workout that can be beneficial to anyone who decides to play. It produces a lot of sweat, which rids the body of toxins; encourages heavy breathing, which brings in more oxygen into the brain and muscles; and moves almost every part of your body, which tightens your muscles and loosens up your joints. Getting into shape using sports also produces feel-good hormones, such as endorphins, which relieves stress, boosts self-confidence and it can improve an individuals mood. Most importantly, basketball is a sport that anyone can play during their free time with friends or alone. If you want to shape up and have fun at the same time, then pick up a ball and go throw some hoops!
