Are there machines in the gym you see someone using and realize that you never even knew it existed?
You’re curious, but not wanting to leave your comfort-zone, you eyeball it from afar until you eventually forget it exists again and use the same few pieces of equipment that you’re familiar with?
Today’s equipment review will be of something commonly found a community fitness centers:
What is it? A leather ball that is inflated to bounce, approximately 9inches in diameter.
What can you do with it? Shoot hoops, run dribbling drills, pass drills, and play games. Keep in mind that you don’t necessarily need a hoop, or even a court for that matter, to workout using a basketball.
Functional fitness rating: 7/10 because basketballs are so versatile they can be used for a variety of cardio drills and agility training, I am giving this piece of gym equipment a high score. In this score I am also factoring in that you can incorporate a game of basketball or H-O-R-S-E in with a friend to keep your workout fun by adding that social component.
