Below are 5 reasons why you should start lifting weights today in order to be successful on the basketball court.

Before I start talking the benefits of lifting weights when playing basketball, it should be made clear that lifting weights can be done in a variety of ways, such as using machines, free weights, or your own body weight. Various options for lifting weights all have benefits, and it's best to try each of them, and which one works best for you.

However, depending on whichever option you choose, you'll need to be mindful of your form/technique and the amount of weight you are lifting. You should gradually increase the weight you are lifting as you get stronger because starting with too much weight could cause injury.
