Trampoline rebounding is an excellent whole-body aerobic workout that has even more benefits than you think. Not only is it fun and enjoyable, but it’s also a great way to get fit or stay in shape.
The TOP 5 benefits of rebounding, as follows:
Trampolining is more effective and beneficial because there is less muscle strain than with jogging, since the surface of the trampoline absorbs the majority of impact forces and transfers the rest to the whole body, not isolated joints that must bear the burden themselves. This is much better than with running, as ankles absorb a lot of pressure, which causes pain and other issues. The rebounding exercises are more vigorous than jogging, and what’s more, you can also exercise for longer periods as you will tire and strain much less. Trampolining is therefore suitable even for people who experience pain when jogging.
You will also see that you will be able to jump for longer and longer amounts of time per session. This is because you build stamina and endurance. Your muscles and tendons grow stronger and resilient and your lungs become more efficient – your lung capacity will increase substantially with regular exercise.
Generally, trampoline exercises can markedly improve your cardiovascular health, being a particularly efficient kind of aerobic exercise. ‘Aerobic’ means the exercise makes your body consume more oxygen to move. In this case, trampolining consumes much more than jogging. This will help you feel more energized. Specific motion of trampoline rebounding (up and down) helps keep your lymphatic system in shape, as the lymph will flow better with all that motion. Some sources report a tenfold improvement! The lymphatic system depends on your muscles to help it move body waste and support your immune system, but you can kick-start the process by exercising on a trampoline. Lymphatic system is important as it absorbs various fluids and transports white blood cells to various sites in the body where they’re needed.
Your spatial awareness and motor function will also certainly develop over time. Trampolining requires fine motoric precision which engages many of your muscles that you might not even be aware of. You will find it much easier to control your body movements and balance both on and off the trampoline once you have been training for a while. This is a very important benefit that very few other comparatively simple exercise methods provide. Your body uses these muscles mostly for balance and control of your body. This also results in improvements to your muscle tone, especially your core. It should also help with maintaining correct body posture. You will slouch much less and feel confident in your movement and balance. Your feeling for rhythm should also improve, as you will feel more in tune with your body. Coordination and fast, almost reflex-like movement will be more precise and very quick.
Your bone strength and density should also improve, as the regular but small stresses from trampolining force your body to strengthen your joints and bones.
There are also many psychological benefits. Trampolining is a great stress relief. It can help you unload all that negative energy you get during the day, as exercise stimulates the release of endorphins, also called ‘feel-good hormones’. Since it is more intense than many other exercises, you will reduce stress more easily. It will help you calm down; you will be more relaxed and will sleep better during the night. Some say there are cognitive benefits as well – trampolines help with blood flow to the brain any may help with you think more clearly and concentrate better. Rebound exercise is also very convenient, as you can rebound in your backyard, or even in the bedroom. Not only that, but trampoline exercises are also a lot of fun.
To begin with, research conducted by scientists from NASA has shown trampolining and rebound exercise to be 69% more effective than jogging, while being less tiring. Regular exercise helps prevent obesity and will help you slim down. When exercising on a trampoline, you burn more calories per hour and lose more weight than with regular exercise, such as jogging. The average is more than 320 per hour! It might even go up to 1000 calories per hour when used in high-intensity training sessions!
There exists a huge variety of exercises and games that you can tailor to suit your level of activity. Trampolining is an effective exercises for all age ranges. It is very forgiving and simple. If you’re not having fun, you’re doing something wrong!
