Surprising as it sounds, rebounding is better for you than running and many other forms of exercise and it can also be done in your own home. Using the re-bounder or trampoline takes up to 80% off the stress of your weight-bearing joints. This makes it a great option for a wide range of age groups and fitness levels.
Re-bounder exercises have many important health benefits as follows:
The increase to your pulse rate brought about by jumping, ensures that oxygen is pumped round your body more efficiently, making you feel healthier and more alert, plus it’s a great way to keep your weight down.
Unlike some sports like jogging and tennis, trampolining or rebounding has low joint impact for a high impact, intensive exercise routine. This is because your vertical movements are soaked up by the trampoline springs, which take up over 80% of the shock, meaning trampolining protects your joints whilst exercising your muscles.
Re-bounding exercises are strenuous, and the repetition of the jump action puts the bones under repeated slight stress; this helps your musculoskeletal system build up and improves bone mineral content. Each landing from a jump is equivalent to twice the force of gravity which helps prevent brittle bone disease, or osteoporosis.
Because the re-bounder pad is less bouncy than the trampoline but still soaks up a large proportion of the impact of your landing, your bones and joints are protected whilst being strengthened.
Not only does improved circulation pump clean oxygen into your brain, making you feel more alert, but also the physical activity you perform whilst trampolining will make you feel happier, more positive, and even more self-confident.
Endorphins, the positive mood-enhancing natural chemicals released by all exercise including jogging, cycling and sex are triggered by trampolining; but, added to this, the fun factor of jumping up and down will make you smile and happier.
Coordination and Motor skills
Re-bounding is also a great way to develop the coordination skills that allow you to undertake a number of tasks which require you to concentrate at the same time, such as bouncing and balancing. This is proven to have a positive impact on motor skills.
You don’t need to go to the gym or tennis courts or find a new route for your run or bike ride, or even get changed into gym clothing. The re-bounder is in one place, offers privacy and any comfortable clothing is suitable for your trampoline exercise. Its not dependent on good weather either.
The regular use of the re-bounder can greatly improve your health, it easy to use, and is a fun way to exercise.
