I used to do Taekwondo. So I like to kick and stretch a lot. Now, I'm going to a fitness gym where I usually run on a treadmill or cycle using either an elliptical machine or stationary bicycle. I also do strength training.

My favorite sport is basketball. In this sport, I catch the ball from my teammates, then I run quickly towards the upper basket. Finally I jump in the air and throw the ball into the basket to score.

Hi Sir, How 'Watching tv" is an action verb? Since we use our 'sense of sight' that's why it is an action verb? Or some different reason? Are our five senses indicates action verb??

Hi Rsb,

Verbs of perception are often stative: hear, see, smell, taste, feel.

However, we can also choose to use our senses in an active way. Watch is different from see because we choose to watch, while seeing is something that happens without an active decision. 

Sometimmes the dynamic and stative verbs for these areas are different and sometimes the same verb is used:

see - watch

hear - listen

taste - taste

smell - smell

feel - feel/touch

I admit that I don't practice any sport activity at this time. When I was younger I did a lot of rugby, so I had to catch, throw and kick the ball and of course also to run. I know cycle and swim, not very well but that is ok. I am very bad to skate. I try 3 times I think and I wasn't really confident.
