Just about every fitness regimen has its own way of telling you how much easier it is on your joints than the rest. For example, running is often compared to walking, cycling is often compared to running, and [insert recreational activity here] is often compared to cycling.
And it’s not just about joints – switching up your muscle groups also reduces the potential for certain injuries, like hitting the same muscles with every workout. If you suffer from shin splints, you know what I’m talking about.
So no matter what your fitness goal might be, you want to be sure to switch around your activities often to avoid repetitive stress injury.
And you might enjoy different activities just because they each provide a different challenge. The key is to stay active; your body and joints will thank you for it in the end.
Let’s not forget about rollerblading as a recreational activity!
For outdoor rollerblading, your total workout time is going to depend on a lot of things, including your speed and how big your route is.
