1 hour of basketball = 4 hours of pool = 580 calories
Looking to burn off those nachos you scarfed down in a moment of late-night weakness? Hit the courts instead of the pool hall. Yes, playing a few games of pool burns about 150 calories—but you could work off nearly four times that throwing a ball around. Plus, playing an hourlong pickup game sounds a lot less creepy than playing four straight hours of pool.
