I have been wondering about that. I bought an exercise bike last year and used it twice the first week and it's been used to hang towels on ever since. If I thought using it would build muscles that would improve my skating I think I'd use it more.

That's what I've been thinking. I've tried paying attention when skating and I think I can feel the effort in my arms at those points. I don't particularly want my arms to get overly muscular and built, but the definition and increased muscle I'm seeing is a pleasant surprise. I was at the playground with my son at the weekend and for the first time in probably decades I grabbed onto the monkey bars and made it the whole way across. I was actually holding my phone between my legs as I was just trying to demonstrate to my son how to do it and was under no illusion that I'd actually make it across. Yet I did it almost entirely on upper body strength as I couldn't really engage my legs without losing my phone. It can only be down to skating as it's the only exercise I do.
