Baryo Basketball

Basketball is very popular in the Philippines. Kids play whenever they are not in school.

Playing basketball during summer is a common to all. I used to play basketball for past time and to make myself fit. But taking a bath after a tired and streneous activity keeps me from doing it because of the risks told by my parents like passing out while taking a bath or even worst death. So I googled it and found out that its not true and infact good for your health, it keeps away bacteria,fungi and etc and grows from your body but provided that you only take a hot shower before taking a cold shower because of your body is still on fire. For example: our body is like a machine when it is overheated and you pour water on it the machine perspire just like our body. And its a bad thing.

I made a list on what to do after your heavy workout:

  • After the heavy stuff warm up a little for your body to prepare for cooldown.
  • Rest for like 5 mins – 30 mins or if you feel like your ready to take a bath.
  • Bath on hot water for 2 mins and then cold for like 5 mins just enough for you to clean up.

I realized that taking a bath after streneous activity is not bad at all but provided that you know what you are doing.
