You'll often see people on bicycle skates skating down bike paths and sidewalks. It looks so easy - really? Can you work up a sweat and breathe while skating? If you loved skating as a kid, or still enjoy driving on eight wheels, then you'll be happy to know that yes, it can be a great cardio and strength workout. Why inline skating is a great fitness workout?

This passage is going to talk about the followings of fitness inline skate:

(1)   The fitness effect of inline skates

(3)   Advantages of fitness skate


(1) The fitness effect of inline skates

Skates burn almost as many calories as they do when running (for a person weighing 125 pounds, it's 210 calories in 30 minutes of inline skating, compared to 240 calories in the same amount of time running for 12 minutes, according to Harvard Health Publications).

But Ashley Borden, a celebrity personal trainer and author of "Your Perfect Body," says the workout itself is very different. Rollerblading works differently on your rear muscles, she says. For example, you push your legs to the side rather than back, which strengthens the outside of your hips more than running does. Skating also forces you to use your core rather than when running, because you have to balance and control your body more when riding a wheel.

(2) Advice for skating beginners

Improving the fitness factor: To really reap the fitness benefits of inline skating, it's all about going low. Bend your knees and lower your upper body while skating to increase the burn in your legs. You can also do intervals by skating as fast as possible, then stopping or returning to a maintainable speed, she says. Another option: Include hills in your route to further challenge your muscles, Porter said. Be careful that the hills aren't so steep that you can't control your body on the way down, Borden said.

Rock protective gear is also needed. Since you're moving fast on wheels, it's important to wear athletic gear to protect you from injury. You'll want to wear wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads and a helmet.

With a little help, your flexibility and range of motion (ROM) will increase

You can also try to improve your mental health. Think of your skating as an opportunity for much-needed quiet time. Choose a scenic rink or nice company to help improve your mood and let the exercise change the chemical balance of your body, bringing a natural sense of well-being.
