Skateboarders usually skip warm-up exercises since they think these warm-ups are redundant but they don’t realize the seriousness of doing exercise before skateboarding.

Preventing injuries, preparing for a good mental condition, and improving the performance of your muscles and joints are the most important effects. If you are feeling a bit stiff when you need to spend a full day of training at skateparks or with a hard skating session, you had better spend about 5 to 10 minutes doing some warm-ups for a long and hard training plan.

However, if you don’t know how to do these exercises correctly, you will be more prone to injuries. Here is a quick instruction for a quick warm-up that works well for skateboarders as recommended at SkateAdvisors:

The first exercise is to stand as tall as possible on your heels and toes respectively. Skaters are advised to repeat this exercise 10 times before moving to the next one. Now keep both feet flat on the ground and get into the sprained ankle position, then repeat this exercise 10 times.

Next, you need to stand up and try to bend your body toward the toes as you can feel the tension on your hamstrings.

For this exercise, you need to repeat about 10 to 15 times. At this position, you can continue by bringing your knee up to your chest and repeat for both sides 10-15 times. If any of these exercises above confuse you, you ought to visit SkateAdvisors to see the vivid demonstration before continuing. Similarly, you can bring the knee to your chest but open your hip as much as you can for 10 repetitions.

Then you need to do some squats before doing a bit of twisting your upper body. Once you are done with that, you can move on with the split squat position and you have to keep an upright posture. Finally, you can finish with a bit of jumping to stretch the whole body. By a quick exercise in just 10 minutes, you are ready for your skating session.
