    Is skateboarding good cardio

    Is skateboarding good cardio?? ( good enough to replace jogging)
    also is it good for pylometrics??
    my running routine each week was a 3 km run, 4.5 km run and a HIIT session per week.

    but Lately I've replaced jogging with skateboarding ( I skateboard quite a few hours a week )
    As well my job is physical (loading and unloading)

    If you don't skateboard , Please mention that. thanks guys, reps!!

    Its not so much the calories I'm worried about ( I actually want to maintain as many calories as possible ) I'm more concerned about heart health/cardiovascular health, lol I'm more of a street skater myself, I'm not so good on the transtitions.

    Glad I'm not the only one doing this. I regularly skateboard after lifting. It's fun, I work up a sweat, and I'm challenging my muscles in ways different than the weight room while improving my balance. Many young folk are often surprised when they see me zip past on my cruising board.

    Many older people are shocked that I can even keep my balance on one. Then I let them in on the fact I've been skating over 30 years, it sorta makes sense.

    So to answer your question, yes, I believe skating has potential to be decent cardio.

    i personally do not skateboard, but variance is always good! wouldnt recommend replacing jogging or HIIT with skateboarding by any means, but yes there's definitely some cardio involved.

    If you skateboard then you know skating hard and doing tricks will burn plenty more calories than just cruising around. I'm pretty sure just pumping around in a bowl for awhile would be insane cardio.
    When doing tricks however, there is a risk from so much impact force generated.

    Are you breathing hard? What's your HR while skateboarding? That's your answer right there.

    ^ this, if your not bothered about what burns calories then it doesn't matter what you do for cardio, anything that raises your heart rate and breathing is good for your heart.
