"I was really hoping someone could make references to the chart Calorie Consumption - Which activities burns how many calories? Our... sports per inline skating level, chat which deals with weight; ie: default is indeed similar to Slow Jogging,…"
"If you are breathing heavy enough to feel like you are working but still be able to still hold a conversation while skating, you are probably in HR zone 2, 65% to 80% HR max, and this is what I would consider to be the point when you are at that 600…"
"and I'm trying to know what level of inline skating correcpond to what level of calorie burning. What is regular? How can you qualify that? Is it by breathing or indirectly by HR? Also what would be other levels of calorie burning? My HRM…"
"You burn more calories skating because you recruit more muscles than cycling or running, generally. You also use bigger muscle groups in tandem with the complex movement so the calorie burn is higher. You should expect to burn 600 kcal per hour for…"
I'm obese. I'm not expecting sports to cut down my weight. I know exactly how to cut my weight as I've done it before: calories intake; eating & drinking. So my issue here is just not to get fatter, not to get slimmer. For some months I managed to keep a weight I wasn't proud of but not panicked, then I weighted myself, which I don't do often, and hit an imaginary milestone which worries me a bit.Some days I do a lot of inline skating and don't feel hungry per say.

"Get a balance board and do drills standing on one foot. Like Robert said, you are making a huge leap from aggressive boots (wheels around 56mm) to fitness/speed style boots with twice the wheel size. It takes getting used to, and…"

"Those were my first skates after having skated on rec-skates. There'll definitely be a period of adjusting. Give yourself some time, but I'd focus on shorter daily sessions over longer infrequent ones. There are a lot of…"
It has been 8 years since I was heavily into aggressive skating. I recently decided to get back into inline skating, but really not interested in aggressive any longer. I purchased the tempest 100's and it's taking me a while to get used to the shorter boot. Obviously there is not as much ankle supprt as my aggressive skates had. I am having issues with my ankles rolling in and out. I know its been a while and I'm jumping into a different type of skating than I was used to, but I could use some…See More
