Roller skating, on average, burns around 249 calories within 30 minutes. This figure is only an estimate and can vary depending on the following factors- 

When Coming To Burning Calories When Skating, Men And Women Are Different.

Do you sometimes wonder why your male friends don’t get fat no matter what they eat, but when you drink water, you get fat?

This is because men and women burn fat differently.

This is because men have more muscle mass per pound and women have more body fat.

This results in different levels of fat-burning between men and women.

Your Body Weight Determines How Much Fat You Can Burn.

Generally, the more you weigh, the more calories you’ll burn per session.

Calories are just a measure of energy, so the more you weigh, the more energy it takes to move your body.

People with larger bodies tend to have larger internal organs – the heart, liver, kidneys, and lungs.

This is one of many reasons weight loss is so complicated – because as your body size gets smaller, you burn fewer calories.

So…. What’s your weight?…..  

What Kind Of Roller Tricks Do You Do?

If you’re doing normal skate moves, I mean normal skate moves on flat ground, forward or backward, not the tricks of dazzling moves.

The fat you burn is what I just said above. The MET of the normal skate for roller skate is 5.3.

Ermmmm. Let’s don’t talk about these calculations.

This is not what we need to know.

We just need to know that different tricks have different degrees of fat burning.

Below, I will list some of the more energy-required roller skate tricks and tell you why they need more energy to perform (burn more calories). 

From there, you choose the tricks you like the most and do more of that tricks when you skate.

  • Two Foot Turn

This trick is when you skate forward, lift your left foot to 90 degrees, and put it down, and then your right foot does the same thing or the other way around.

  • Shoot The Duck

The difficulty of this will be more serious.

When I say more serious difficulty, it means that it requires more physical strength and will be more tiring.

But this movement is not for everyone because it requires you to have strong thigh muscles and a strong core group.

Basically, when you are skating, lift one foot up and squat down with the other foot.

You’ll then use one foot are squat to get up. This move burn a lot of calories, and also works your thigh muscles and glutes.

But, Not easy to do it!

  • One Foot Turn Backward

To do this, you need to lift one of your feet up and use the back and core muscles to push your body to rotate in the other direction.

  • One Foot Turn Forward

This is actually the same muscle group used and energy consumption as the one above. The difference is that one is backward, and the other is turning forward.

How Tight Are Your Roller Skate Wheels?

Have you checked the tightness of your roller skate wheels?

If the binding is too tight, the force used to push is different, and the degree of fat burning will also be different.

 It still depends on your personal preference.

If you tie it too tightly, you will feel uncomfortable.

 I believe you will not last long. We still have to look at one thing in the long run.

Did You Rest In-Between?

You usually take a halfway break when you’re exhausted, don’t you?

 Rest is okay, but you must know some principles of fat burning.

Basically, our heart rate needs to reach a certain heartbeat rate before the body starts to burn fat.

So when your heartbeat rate reaches that level, keep it up. Don’t let it go down.

Unless it’s a real skeleton that’s going to flash off, keep going.

Skate On a Slope Or Flat Road?

I shouldn’t need to say more about this, right?

 If the Slope goes up, it will be very difficult to skate.

 If it is difficult, the fat burned will be greatly increased.

It will be relatively easy on flat land, and the fat burned will follow you easily.

Skate uphill is not downhill.

If downhill can burn fat, you can lose weight while lying down at home too.


Does reading this make you want to start roller skating even more?

Just like other sports, it is good for health, and the difference is just which sports you are more interested in.

If you are a beginner, you must remember to take protective measures for release.

Don’t rush it step by step.

Start with a sketch once a week for about 1 hour, and then slowly increase the number of times per week according to your personal schedule.

Or the length of time. That’s about it. Thanks for reading!
