Buy a Basketball Shoe with Good Cushioning

Basketball Shoe with Good Cushioning

See! This is a life hack that does not require you to workout or jump a lot or do any physical thing. All you need to do is spend some money and buy the basketball shoe with the best cushioning.

Cushioning and traction are the two most important traits of basketball shoes. The cushion is added to allow the athlete to have a great bounce right after landing on the ground or to dunk the hoop.

Air Jordan 34 or any Nike show with Air capsule would do the job.


Jump higher with Steroids

Yup, The dirty secret of many athletes.

Well, don’t use it as long as you play for a club or any NBA team. This tip is only for those who play basketball for the fun of it.

So how do steroids help with jumping higher? It is exactly how they help with anything that demands physical exertion.

Your body needs energy for a jump – as a matter of fact, 30 jumping squats burn 100 calories. So, with steroids not only you’d be able to do more than 30 jumps without losing significant energy, but your jumps would also be higher.

This is it …

Not try all or any of these tips and go dunk that hoop bruh!!!
