Think about a trigger point roller, before skating, roll your lower back and hips and the side of your upper legs (IT bands) and then kneel on the sucker and roll your shins, now the muscles are loose and ready to go.

They carry the trigger point rollers at Eastern Mt Sports, and you can get them online, the trigger point comes in a longer version and a short version, I prefer the long version, you can roll your backbone and raise an arm and do the ribs on the sides, makes them very flexible.

So instead of showing up to skate and having to spend twenty minutes loosening up muscles, the muscles are loose and you can just work on muscle memory.
