Mini Trampoline Rebounding Health Benefits
Using a mini-trampoline rebounder has a ton of great health benefits. In the article below, Joanna shares some great tips to start rebounding and how to get the most out of rebounding.
Rebounding Is Good For Your Health
OKAY, now I’ve got myself a rebounder, how should I start rebounding?
Here’s some advice from the experts.
First of all, warm up, says “life passion” coach Barrie Davenport*.
“To warm up, I do a fast walk and some gentle bouncing. I do this for about five minutes. After the warm-up, I begin to jog at an increasing pace, leveling off to a comfortable but steady jog. I pick up the pace to a sprint or a fast jog to really raise my heart rate.
“Sometimes I’ll include ‘jumping jacks’ or the elbow to knee move (left elbow to right knee and right elbow to left knee, with a bounce on both feet in between) but at double time.
“You can increase the intensity of the workout by jogging, bringing your knees up really high as you run. You can also do high jumps by jumping up as high as possible, with both feet off the rebounder and arms outstretched for balance.
“If you want an upper body workout while you’re rebounding, or just to increase your heart rate, try lifting your arms over your head in repetitions-or use small hand weights to do bicep or tricep curls. Be sure to stretch your calves, thighs, and hamstrings after your workout to prevent injury.”
All fine and straightforward, so thank you Barrie.
Another tip is to start quite gently. Apart from anything else, you may need to work on your balance to make sure you don’t fall off the rebounder. Most of them come with the option of a support bar.
I think ten minutes is good to start with, and I have a timer which is set to that. There’s nothing to say that you can’t bounce more than once a day if you feel like it.
Another benefit of rebounding is that it’s a good way to lose weight.
Rebounding is a great low impact exercise to boost your immunity and lower high blood pressure this winter! All you need is a mini trampoline and start bouncing. Watch the video to see how rebounding works…
“Walking and jogging will certainly get your heart pumping and burn plenty of calories for weight loss,” says Robin Reichert of Demand Media.
“Stand in the middle of the rebounder with your feet about hip-width apart. Beginners can start by lifting the heels in a walking motion-first the right and then the left heel. Keep one foot flat on the surface of the rebounder at all times.
He adds that if you jog on the rebounder for 20 minutes, you’ll get about the same amount of aerobic exercise as you would if you ran for three miles.
According to Dr Samuel West D.N. “Rebounding is the best way to circulate the lymphatics. If the lymphatic system is circulating properly, it is practically impossible to get sick.”
And Kathleen Alford at osteodiet.com says: “Rebounding is the most efficient way to stimulate lymph circulation because it yields the greatest change in pressure for the least muscular effort.
“Whether your aim is weight loss, stronger bones, or a smooth-running lymphatic system, rebounding will definitely put some bounce in your step!”
