Obama has said it’s a tradition to play basketball on the morning of an election. So far, so good. Here are pics of President-Elect Barack Obama getting in a round of hoops on the morning of November 4 (sourced from his campaign). Obama is known to be a regular basketball player; he even played on his high school’s varsity team.
Basketball is an incredibly beneficial workout, and one that isn’t monotonous or boring. You can engage with a friend or a group of people and walk away having had a fun and physically demanding workout. A man of Obama’s size (180 pounds), can burn 669 calories during 60 minutes of half-court basketball.
Maybe he will get that indoor basketball court at the White House he’s been wishing for.
