Skating is not an easy activity that everyone can do perfectly the first time time. Balance, coordination, practice and a lot of concentration are needed to maintain an effective skating routine, so doing this type of aerobic exercise, according to ABC, 'favors the generation of neurons and decreases adrenaline levels', being key to improve control over our body, as well as combat stress and anxiety.
Breathing control is essential when skating for medium to long periods of time, since oxygen is needed as fuel to have energy and keep the heart rate elevated. Therefore, this is an excellent aerobic exercise that will fill your lungs with air and improve breathing greatly.
