What is the use of ice skating?

Skating refers to this unique type of motor activity, which is both a sport and a wonderful rest. In addition, figure skating is one of the most beautiful sports. It is nice to watch as a spectator.

 

But since our article is addressed to those who have already gone on skates or are just about to do it, we will speak today not about the spectacular side of figure skating, but about its practical benefits to human health.

 

In order to feel its beneficial effect on yourself, it is not at all necessary to become a professional figure skater - it’s enough to learn to stand on skates and regularly visit the rink. Both for pleasure, and for receiving a powerful charge of positive energy.

Leaving on ice ... extra weight

Figure skating perfectly trains the cardiovascular system. This is the same if you were jogging, but at the same time there is no pressure characteristic for running on your knees. The intensity of aerobic exercise during skating, you can even increase significantly, if you waving his arms.


Becoming on the ice, and wanting to train intensively, you get just an amazing opportunity to get rid of excess weight. And here there are three components of success: time, distance and continuity. Consider these factors in more detail.

Time

If you ride half an hour a day and three times a week, you will definitely lose weight. Now imagine what the rate of dropped kilograms will be if you practice figure skating an hour or two hours a day and four times a week. Impressive, isn't it?

Distance

Suppose that it takes you 30 minutes to overcome one kilometer. In this case, the dream of parting with excess weight can say goodbye. Well, except that the blades of the skates will serve you forever. But you didn’t buy skates for that!

 

Therefore, your desire to lose weight should be accompanied by more and more new time records spent on the passage of a certain distance. In other words, each time this distance should go "in growth".

Continuity

Starting training and outlining a certain distance, do everything possible in order to pass it without stopping and pauses.Having ensured the effect of continuity, you will get another effect - those extra pounds will go away. For your information: an hour-long “jogging” on skates will save you 400 calories.

Other winter sports are not less expensive in terms of calories. For example, mountain and cross-country skiing.

Skating trains endurance

Many dream of becoming resilient in order to successfully withstand various challenges. However, they do not know how to successfully train her in herself. Our advice: go on skates, and you will see how an old dream begins to come true. How can figure skating train endurance?

 

Very simple - thanks to maintaining a steady pace throughout the entire period of time spent on overcoming a given distance. If you are a beginner, then start with short distances, gradually increasing with each workout. Skating also helps to strengthen the tone of the muscles.

 

Despite the fact that leg muscles mainly work, there is benefit for the whole body, especially for the lower back and abdominal muscles. Many muscle groups are being developed during skating, to which sometimes it is impossible to get even with the help of special simulators in the gym.Devoting to figure skating at least an hour three times a week, you will become the owner of a good figure and beautiful posture.

The psychological state improves.

What do other people do when they are in a bad mood or stress? They are “stung” with their high-calorie food, “washed down” with large doses of alcohol, or “strangled” in tobacco smoke. Neither the first, nor the second, nor the third methods can neither distract you from problems, nor solve them.

 

Figure skating, of course, also cannot change the objectively formed circumstances of your life, which have become sources of your moral and psychological stress, but it is able, firstly, to change your point of view on problems, and secondly, to help better cope with them.


You can come to the rink alone, or you can with your wife and children or in the company of friends. Thereby laying a wonderful tradition that will become a unique unifying principle that will smooth out misunderstanding and temporary difficulties.

It is useful to go to the ice shy and unsociable people. At the rink, they can relax, as there is always a reason to laugh kindly at themselves and make new acquaintances.

To be able to ride - to become confident

It is often possible to see how even young people in ice go very carefully, obviously afraid of falling and getting injured. A person who can stand on skates, such fears disappear - a person becomes more confident in himself.

 

This is achieved due to the fact that training at the rink makes it possible to control your body, make it obedient and manageable. In parallel with this, both children and adults become calmer psychologically, that is, their fear of being in an awkward situation from a sudden fall disappears.

Having learned to skate, many people have a sense of superiority over those who have not yet "conquered" the ice distance. Of course, excellence in a good way. And this is also a factor of self-confidence, stimulating to new results (“I could”, “I can even better”, “I will always be first”, etc.).


Skating perfectly helps to hone the plastic movements, their elegance and expressiveness. Moreover, you can slide on the ice to the music without much skill, and the feeling of rhythm will not keep you waiting, it will come with time.

 

Self-confidence will also give you and martial arts.

"Let's hit" skates for ill health

Skating occurs most often in the fresh air, which is extremely important for health. Considering that a modern person spends much of his time in the office in front of a computer or at home in front of a computer, skating is an effective fight against physical inactivity, which has become a real scourge of our time. If you don’t “hit” with your skates, then you start with a violation of posture, and then scoliosis and osteochondrosis.

As a result of training, the body's defenses are enhanced, and the state of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems improves. If you are prone to frequent colds, you have a chronic cough and you have been diagnosed with heart disease, in which stress is permissible in principle, skating is a direct path to health promotion.

 

But in order for this goal not to become unreachable, we need regular training. And regularity in turn becomes a good (and enjoyable!) Way to prevent and treat these ailments.


The positive effect of figure skating on health is higher if the skating rink is in the open. But if winter is not frosty, then it will be problematic to ride in the fresh air.

However, today nothing is impossible: you can go on skates not only in winter and at an appropriate temperature outside the window, but also at any other time of the year. Such wonderful opportunities for a wonderful pastime gives artificial ice.

 

Not only skating, but also cycling will be beneficial to your health.

Who can not go on the ice?

Unfortunately, there are serious contraindications for such pleasant, tonic and healthy activities like figure skating. The most serious of these are, of course, problems with the musculoskeletal system.

Skating is associated with jumps, as well as the likelihood of frequent falls, which is extremely unacceptable when:

  • spinal problems;
  • weak bone tissue;
  • congenital dislocation of the joints;
  • ligament problems.

If you suspect one or several such problems in your child or yourself, or you probably know about their existence, you should consult and be thoroughly examined by a traumatologist before embarking on figure skating classes.

If your child has vision problems, he wears glasses, but he is very drawn to training on the ice, do not forbid him that.Only in this case take the responsibility to ensure that the child does not receive large loads, which in his state are undesirable and can seriously harm him.


We and our children ride on an open or closed skating rink, it’s always cool enough on ice. Therefore, people with kidney disease, figure skating classes are the most reasonable to refuse. Or at least pay more attention to clothing to avoid hypothermia.
