According to medical studies, inline skating ranks among the top exercises for improving or maintaining physical health. The medical community has concluded that inline skating is more beneficial to health than jogging. By inline skating at 20 MPH, skaters burn 6 calories per minute or 360 calories per hour. Here are the benefits of inline skating.
1. Body Sculpting
You only need to inline skate 3 times a week for 2 hours each time to stay in shape. For best results, it is recommended that you skate regularly. The faster you skate, the more calories you burn.
2. Improve coordination
Inline skating can improve your balance when moving your body. Start with basic inline skating tricks, then learn to do more advanced moves on skates such as backward skating, cross turns, inline field hockey, radical skating, and even yoga as you challenge your balance, coordination, and agility.
3. Increase core strength
Posture, abdominal and back extensors that get a great workout while inline skating. With each push and skating motion, the core is activated to support the entire body, providing stability and thus dynamic balance. A strong core helps to reveal the effortless appearance of a skilled skater.
4. Aerobic Exercise
Inline skating raises your heart rate and gets your lungs working properly, both of which are components of aerobic exercise. You can increase the benefits of these aerobic exercises by skating on ramps, skating more vigorously, or practicing interval skating. Aerobic exercise improves the cardiovascular system and reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure.
5. Anaerobic Exercise
Inline skating offers anaerobic benefits such as muscle strengthening and toning. Lower body muscles, core muscles, and even upper body muscles are effectively exercised when inline skating. Muscle benefits are seen throughout the body from long leg steps, holding positions, and swinging arms.
6. Low-impact exercise
While skating as a weight-bearing activity has the benefit of improving bone density, the smooth pushing and gliding motion has the least impact on the joints.
7. Increased self-confidence
Perhaps the greatest fitness benefit is that inline skating is fun and gives you a sense of accomplishment as you tackle a new fitness challenge. There are many great inline skating events to attend; from races to tours to local skate nights and more.
