Roller Skating Workout: Tone Your Legs

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

north Texas roller skatingWe’ve mentioned the many health benefits of roller skating before, but do you know how to get the most out of your roller skating? Here are some tips for a roller skating workout that will help you tone your legs, build muscle, and improve balance. Come on out to InterSkate Roller Rink in Lewisville for the most fun workout you’ve ever had!

Roller Skating Leg Workout

Do squats while you skate. From full speed, extend your hands in front of you, with feet shoulder-width apart. Bend at the knees to get into a squatting position, and repeat a few times before building up speed again. After a set of 15-20, take a 2-minute skate break before starting again. Three sets of squats makes for a great workout for your thighs, hips, quads, and glutes.

Using ankle weights is another way to combine skating for fun with skating for exercise. The extra weight on your ankles will force you to use more effort in your quadriceps to lift the skates. To get the hang of it, start with 2 pound weights, then work your way up to 5 pounds, but remember to limit your weight usage to 3 days a week to avoid overuse injuries.

Remember to watch out for other skaters, warm up before working out, and have fun! To see our regular skate sessions, special events, and classes check out our skate schedule. You can also follow us on Facebook to stay up to date on our events and deals!
