Impress your friends with your muscle knowledge

By now you’ve probably worked out how much fun roller disco is.  Our 28 5 star reviews tell us you are enjoying it. But did you know how many muscles you are working every time you SK8?  Katrina Bullimore, Remedial and Soft Tissue Therapist, tells us exactly what we are doing when we step onto our 8’s.

  • Spinal Muscles and postural stabilisers
  • Abdominals
  • Glutes and Hip flexors
  • Quadriceps
  • Hamstrings
  • Abductors/adductors
  • Gastrocnemius and Tibula Anterior

All of this translates into back, bum, thighs (inner, outer and back), calf and shin!

Muscles used

We already know that Lincoln’s top PT Craig Barton agrees it is a great way of incorporating cardio into your weekly routine so this is all good news for shedding those Christmas pounds!

How can you prevent injury?

Katrina is the resident therapist for our friends at Lincolnshire Bombers Roller Girls so we think she knows her stuff. Her advice on how to prevent injuries goes like this…..

  • Learn how to fall correctly
  • Wear the correct protective gear, knee pads, elbow pads and wrist guards
  • Learn to stop, balance and control your speed

Your safety is as important to us. We offer wrist guards for free and  first aiders are on hand.We operate a ‘3 strikes and you’re out’ policy so anyone repeatedly trying to ruin the safe and fun atmosphere will be asked to leave.  Jon Crawford
