In order to compensate (or not) for the aperitifs and ice creams of the summer, for some the return to school is synonymous with sport, fitness, or rather the resumption of a healthier lifestyle. But it’s out of the question to refuse a drink when leaving the office or a pizza before a Champions League match. Here are the ten sports that will raise your heart rate according to Mayo Clinic, an American university hospital and research federation.
10th place: rollerblading

Climbing, descending, ascending, descending, and all that at high speed can make the cardio skyrocket very quickly. It stings, that’s for sure, but a feeling of well-being is guaranteed at the end (and some aches too, we’re not going to lie to each other). Intense and effective, the stair run delights the most masochist physical exercise.
