Skate and skates help to strengthen legs and butt

Skate and skates help to strengthen legs and butt

The arrival of summer increases interest in outdoor activities. How about a sunny afternoon and a stroll in the rollerblading park? Or leave the car at home and go to the skateboard? In addition to losing weight, you will strengthen your muscles and, of course, have fun.

"Skate or roller skating releases adrenaline because they are extreme sports," explains Professor Allan Cesar Almeida da Silva. The hormone, produced by the adrenal glands, is released whenever we are exposed to physical or psychic stress, which causes the human body to become alert.

Furthermore, "people who train skate or skates tend to have a much stronger and toned leg, since the strengthening of the lower limbs in both cases is very intense, "explains Allan. But arms, shoulders and abdomen also end up being worked out, because they are what give stability to the athlete.

The modalities bring benefits for the cardiovascular system, because they are aerobic activities. An hour of skateboarding spends an average of 250 calories. From skates, the average is 500 calories. Another good point is the question of balance. Skaters and skaters often have a better body awareness.

If you're starting now, pay attention to posture. Beginners on skates tend to put the center of gravity back. The correct thing is to let the knees slightly flexed, to project the hip back and the trunk forward. If you feel you will fall, bend your knees and place your hands in front of your face to protect it. In the case of skateboarding, the most common mistake made by students is not to leave their feet parallel. In both cases, the use of safety equipment is mandatory (helmet, knee and elbow).

Be on the street or in indoor classes offered by some academies. "So you can move forward without fear of falling and getting hurt. It will loosen up and develop the activity better," says Allan. In case of skateboarding, try to use a suitable sneaker with non-slip soles.

In addition to the physical part, the fun on four wheels also brings benefits to the social part. Esporte Clube Pinheiros's skateboard coordinator, Eli Celso, reminds us that despite being an individual sport, you'll be walking with more people most of the time. The challenge is an extra attraction for skateboarders. But Eli recognizes: it's a difficult sport. "You know that if you make a decision and make a mistake, it will fall," he explains. > The important thing is not to be discouraged in the first fall. To avoid injury it is also important to stretch and warm up before you begin.

As for outdoor activities, do not forget: wear light clothing that helps your body breathe, always get sunscreen when skating or roller skating. Keep well hydrated, with water or isotonic. And consume a fast-absorbing carbohydrate, before training, to keep it off.
