Find out how rebounding can transform your health and supercharge every cell in your body.
How does Rebounding work?
To start rebounding, make sure the trampoline is properly set up and secure. Begin by standing in the centre of the rebounder with your feet shoulder-width apart. Keep your arms at your sides and your back straight. When you start bouncing, use your legs to push off the rebounder. Keep your knees slightly bent and your feet flat on the rebounder. As you get more comfortable, increase the intensity of the bounce.
Vary the intensity of your workout by changing the height of your jumps. For a higher intensity workout, jump higher and land with both feet on the rebounder. For a lower intensity workout, keep your jumps low and land with one foot at a time.
You can add more complex movements such as jogging, jumping jacks, knee-ups and squats. To increase the intensity even more, you can add light weights or a medicine ball while you jump. You can also add arm movements like circling your arms or making swimming motions
How does Rebounding benefit your health?
Rebounding is an excellent form of exercise that offers so many health benefits. It is a low-impact workout that is easy on your joints, making it a safe and effective way to stay in shape. It also doesn’t put as much strain on your body like other forms of exercise can.
Rebounding can provide a great cardiovascular workout. The rhythmic and repetitive jumping motions increases your heart rate which can help to strengthen and condition the heart, and improve stamina and endurance. It also increases your blood circulation, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to reach your cells.
Increased muscle strength and endurance
Rebounding is a great way to strengthen and condition the muscles and boost fitness. The bouncing motion helps to work the muscles in the legs, arms and core, as well as the back and shoulders.
Stimulates metabolism and enhances digestion and elimination
By increasing the contraction of your abdominal muscles, rebounding can help to move food through your intestines more quickly and efficiently, reducing the risk of constipation and other digestive issues. It can also help to flush out toxins and excess waste, allowing your body to better absorb essential nutrients and eliminate waste more easily.
Better balance and coordination
As you bounce, your muscles must work together to keep your body stable and balanced, and with regular practice, you can improve your coordination and balance. This can reduce the risk of falls and injury, and improve overall physical performance.
Improved flexibility and posture
Rebounding can strengthen and lengthen muscles which can improve your flexibility and range of motion. When you bounce, your body is forced to move in different directions and your core muscles must work to keep you stable. This helps to strengthen and tone your core muscles which can help to improve your posture and reduce back pain.
Weight loss and muscle toning
The rhythmic and repetitive jumping motions help to burn calories and fat, and tone the body. Adding rebounding to your daily routine can promote healthy weight loss.
Improved emotional well-being
As rebounding is a form of aerobic exercise, it helps to stimulate endorphins which are feel-good hormones associated with reducing stress and lifting mood.
Supercharge your health with rebounding
Rebounding is an excellent way to add variety to your exercise routine. It’s a fun and enjoyable way to get moving, and it can help to reduce stress and improve your overall emotional and physical health.
