Get a Good Workout By Rollerblading

By Brandi Swieter  

Going for a walk or run is extremely beneficial to the body, but other activities are great as well. Skip the running for a day and try rollerblading again instead. A lot of people haven’t attempted to rollerblade since they were kids going to the roller rink with their friends, but the activity is actually great for staying in shape. Give it a try and get in a good workout.

Excellent for the Lower Body

Rollerblading is the most excellent for the lower body. The exercise targets the large muscle groups in this region, such as the quads, hamstrings, glutes, calf, and abductors within the thighs. Many may not think about getting a core workout when rollerblading, but the continuous stabilization that needs to be done proves otherwise. The core muscles work as the person has to balance themselves to stay upright.

Improving Cardiovascular Health

Most physical activity is good for the heart, but aerobic exercise that gets the heart rate up is best. Rollerblading is such a workout that targets multiple muscles and can get the heart pumping quickly. This leads to an improvement in cardiovascular health and a heart that beats strong.

Increasing Endurance

The first rollerblading session after years off the blades can feel exhausting. Some people may not even be able to go for long before their legs are feeling heavy. Rollerblading at least a couple of times a week will start to increase endurance. As the muscles adapt and the body gets used to the movements, it will become stronger and better able to handle the vigorous activity. The more endurance a person has for the activity, the longer they can handle it as well. A person may start out only able to handle 15-minute sessions and can end up rollerblading for an hour or more at a time with ease after plenty of practice.

Rollerblading may have once seemed like a fun activity with teenage friends, but people can use it now for a fitness routine. It’s great for the lower body and even the abs, and will help to promote overall fitness and health. Those who experience some discomfort after a session of rollerblading can visit The Joint Chiropractic to see about eliminating joint restrictions throughout the body. Some that were there prior could be the culprit or new ones could have developed from the activity.
