Most seasoned skaters will back-up the importance of stretching before skating. Stretching not only allows you to steez out those ollies more, but prevents all sorts of injury. Below are a few tips from Aaron Goure – one of KTR’s finest skaters- to get you started. Remember to listen to your body when it says, “Ow!”, and ease into each stretch, so you don’t pull a muscle in the process. Also, try not to stretch when your muscles are stiff; go for a short skate or walk to warm up those muscles. If you stick with it, you’ll be making up your own stretches in no time!
