Do you absolutely love roller skating but can’t roller skate for very long? Fortunately, there are ways to improve your endurance! These easy steps will help you increase your longevity and get healthy by roller skating.
Set Aside Time for Stretching
Stretching is the key ingredient to a successful roller skating experience. But, why is stretching so important? When you stretch, you are loosening your muscles, increasing blood flow, and improving your range of motion. If you exercise without stretching, your muscles are tight and an injury is likely to occur. Make sure to stretch before and after you roller skate. This will dramatically help your endurance!
Get Healthy in All Areas
To maximize your endurance while roller skating, your body needs to be filled with nutritious food. If you eat junk food and drink soda often, your body may feel sluggish and unable to exercise properly. Make it your goal to eat properly and exercise often – before and after you head to the skating rink! Creating healthy meals for you and your family doesn’t have to take hours. Take a look at these 30 healthy recipes that can be made in 30 minutes!
Practice Roller Skating in Intervals
Pacing yourself is key to increase your endurance. While you’re skating at Wheels Skate Center, try roller skating very fast for about one minute. Afterward, give yourself a five-minute break where you glide around the rink. Then, try roller skating fast again. Do this several times until you feel like you can increase your “fast” time. This will help your endurance grow (plus it’s fun)!
