I don't know. I make an effort to pump my arms when I inline skate. Kind of similar to the way Bill Stoppard describes. In the rink I often use my arms like crazy when dancing. I like figure skating stuff like arabesques and I'm working on managing a smooth transition from shoot the duck into an arabesque and I'm starting spinning which I guess utilise my arms. And for the first few weeks I was half holding my son up while he learned to skate but he hasn't needed my help in about 6 weeks, so I doubt it's that. I'm seeing a real improvement in my arm muscles though, particularly my biceps and I'd definitely like to keep it up.
