The Benefits of "Rebounding"


Why rebound? Turns out that there are many benefits to rebounding.

Two of the main reasons why rebounding is so important, is that it improves your IMMUNE SYSTEM and LYMPHATIC HEALTH.

Rebounding involves jumping on a mini-trampoline; which increases both blood and lymph circulation. The body contains 5-6 quarts of blood, which is lovingly circulated by the heart. The lymphatic system, however, does not have a pump like the blood. The lymphatic system is totally dependent on physical exercise to move through the body. Without adequate movement, the cells in the body remain toxic and starved of vital nutrients, which contributes to many degenerative diseases as well as premature aging.

The lymphatic system is a major dumping ground for toxins and waste products, and exercising on a rebounder promotes the flow of lymph, thereby flushing the toxins.

Some BENEFITS OF REBOUNDING:

✅ Improves & strengthens the cardio vascular system effectively

✅ Greatly reduces body fat burning 100's of calories

✅ Detoxifies the body & drains the lymphatic system

✅ Improves & boosts the immune system

✅ Improves and corrects poor posture

✅ Strengthens bones & joints

✅ Improves balance & proprioception

✅ Improves muscle tone and tightens the skin

✅ Improves digestion

✅ More than twice as effective as running without the extra stress on the ankles and knees

✅ Some sources claim that the unique motion of rebounding can also help support the thyroid and adrenals

✅ Rebounding is fun!

Types of Rebound Exercises:

THE HEALTH BOUNCE

The health bounce is where the feet never leave trampoline.

It still has a positive effect because you’re getting all the one-way valves to open and close at the same time, increasing the activity of the lymphatic system throughout the entire body. Follow the instructions for the basic bounce below, but your feet never leave the trampoline surface during the health bounce.

THE BASIC BOUNCE

This can be done instead of the Strength Bounce below until you develop more balance.

  1. Stand on the rebounder with your feet shoulder width apart.

  2. Relax shoulders and arms and keep arms slightly bent at the elbow.

  3. Gently bounce up and down while keeping your knees slightly bent. Your feet should never leave the trampoline surface more than a few inches.

THE STRENGTH BOUNCE

  1. Stand on the rebounder with your feet shoulder width apart.

  2. Relax shoulders and arms and keep arms slightly bent at the elbow.

  3. Gently bounce up and down while keeping your knees slightly bent. Your feet should leave the trampoline surface approximately 8-12 inches.

HIGH KNEES

This is a terrific exercise that gets your heart rate up while working the muscles of your core.

  1. Stand on trampoline surface with your feet hip distance apart.

  2. Raise your right knee, lower it, then raise your left knee and lower it.

  3. Once you feel able, begin doing the knee raises as if you are running in place.

  4. Variation: Sprints – go as fast as you can in short bursts.

BUTTOCK KICKERS

  1. Stand on trampoline surface with your feet hip distance apart.

  2. Begin jogging in place.

  3. When your knee goes up, kick yourself in the tush with your heel.

JUMPING JACKS

This will increase your heart rate while working both the inner and outer thighs.

  1. Stand on the rebounder with your feet together.

  2. Jump up off the trampoline surface a few inches while extending arms out, up and overhead.

  3. Return to the starting position and repeat.

TWISTING JUMPS

  1. Stand on the rebounder with your feet together.

  2. Jump up off the trampoline surface a few inches while twisting your body to the left.

  3. On your next jump, twist your body to the right.
