Being an aerobic exercise just like walking, running and swimming, skating has positive effects on both the body and the mind.
Unlike running, skating is a low impact exercise on the joints, if you do not jump while skating. Regularly practiced, skating contributes to the strengthening of the heart muscles, providing significant protection against coronary heart disease and heart attacks.
Here are the main benefits of practicing this sport:
Anaerobic enhancers (muscle development)
Skating forms your pelvic muscles, hips and thighs. Knee tendons become more flexible. While maintaining your balance, your abdominal muscles and spatula become stronger. The muscles of the arms and shoulders work concurrently with the rest of the muscles.
A low impact on the joints
If you are a beginner, avoid twists, movements, and sudden stops, to keep your joints from getting damaged.
Improves balance, coordination and flexibility
The sport includes a set of exercises for heating, stretching and resistance, so you increase your flexibility. Stand with your knees bent and your body slightly bent forward to keep your balance. To keep your skate stable, it is important and necessary to move your hands around your body, in accordance with foot movements.
It's a sport that consumes 285 calories or more after every 30 minutes of skating at a steady pace.
Benefits for mental health
By skating, you improve your concentration, get rid of stress and worry. You relax, improve your mood, get rid of negative energies. You socialize with people who like the same sport.
We wish you beautiful days with friends at the ice rink! :)
