Lexie Hull in Workout Gear Says "Tis the Season"

Hull captioned the post, “Tis the season.”

Lexie Hull is a professional basketball player with an ever-growing following. She currently plays for the Indiana Fever. She previously played for Stanford. A few weeks ago, she shared a set of photos on Instagram of herself at games and at practice. Hull captioned the post, "Tis the season." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Lexie Hull stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Plays Basketball

Basketball is the main way Hull stays in shape. According to Better Health, the sport has a lot of benefits. "While not renowned as an aerobic sport, it is still a great workout that can help you: burn calories (an hour of basketball can burn 630–750 calories), build endurance, improve balance and coordination, develop concentration and self-discipline, build up muscle."


She Does Aerial Work

Hull likes to try new things to stay in shape. One thing she is learning to do is aerial yoga. She shared this video of herself using silks at a studio. Hull captioned the post, "Try something new in 2023: ✅" The Columbia Association states that aerial yoga is a great workout. "Aerial yoga essentially lifts traditional postures off the ground. This temporary relief from gravity is great for your joints. The aerial hammocks support your body and empower you to take on more challenging poses without strain, force or effort. This helps you achieve proper alignment, deeper stretches and more release in the joints and muscle fibers."


She Plays Pickleball

Basketball isn't the only sport Hull enjoys. She also loves to play pickleball. Hull shared this video on Instagram of herself playing a game. She captioned the post, "I can see what the hype's all about." Renown Health states that the sport has a lot of benefits. "Hitting and receiving the ball can help improve your hand-eye coordination and balance. It helps your mind stay sharp, supports cognitive function and builds footwork skills. Moving your whole body during the game allows your joints to stay flexible."


She Has Support

Hull has found a supportive community in the basketball world. She opened up about this to The Spokesman Review. "Spokane breeds some really good basketball players. I know a lot of them are still playing and it's super awesome to have that 509 connection across the basketball world. I know there's people overseas, there's people everywhere still playing, still pursuing the game. They have my support and I know they're supporting me. It's a super-tight community for sure."


She Hikes

"As with all exercise, hiking comes with heart health benefits. Studies have shown that exercise can reduce your risk of heart disease. By working out, your circulation improves and your heart becomes stronger," says the Cleveland Clinic. "It's recommended that everyone gets at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week. And for Dr. Kampert, it's all about improving your oxygen consumption or VO2 max, which shows how well your heart pushes blood to your muscles, and how efficiently your muscles can extract the oxygen from your circulating blood."
