THE ENDLESS BENEFITS OF REBOUNDING…
List out all of the different types of exercises in the world, and you’d be hard pressed to find one more fun than a rebounder workout. After all, the entire premise is basically just jumping on a trampoline—the way you used to back in third grade—with some choreography mixed in. Rebounding has been around since the early eighties, but has risen in popularity lately thanks to a number of studios like New York City’s The Ness and Los Angeles’s LEKFit integrating trampoline workouts into their class offerings. And for good reason. There are a whole lot of benefits of rebounding (aside from it being one of the most enjoyable ways to break a sweat).
Rebounding improves immune function and cardio health, lymphatic drainage, and muscle tone. It increases metabolism and improves balance, which is very important as we age.
It builds pelvic floor strength: And one more (rather unexpected) benefit of rebounding? It can actually help with your pelvic floor strength. “There is also little to no impact when jumping on a rebounder and it is extremely beneficial for our pelvic floors; each time you land on the rebounder, the body is forced to pull up,” says Kleban, adding that she’s seen many postpartum women regain bladder control(an issue that effects more than 20 percent of postpartum women) after integrating rebounding workouts into their post-baby routines.
Rebounding burns calories faster than walking, swimming, or running.
Which Muscles Does Aerobic Reformer Tone?
When you jump on a mini trampoline, the action can easily tone the muscles of your calves, thighs, lower abdomen, and back. Additionally, there is strong evidence to suggest rebounding can help strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor. Simply bouncing up and down on a mini trampoline can tone these muscles in just ten minutes each day, but you can change up your rebounding workout in countless ways to work additional muscle groups or target specific groups.
For example, if you want to tone your abs and slim down your waist, you can perform oblique twists pretty easily. As you bounce up, twist your hips to one side and your shoulders to the other, and then land. As you come up for another bounce, reverse directions, and keep repeating these alternating movements as long as it is comfortable. Considering how many muscle groups rebounding tones, you may be wondering if there are any muscle groups rebounding won’t target.
Generally speaking, rebounding is a lower body workout, so you probably want to incorporate additional exercises into your workout routine that target your upper chest, arms, shoulders, and upper back muscles. These muscles specifically, this exercise can still help tone these muscles indirectly by enhancing your overall workout in surprising ways. After a few weeks of rebounding regularly, you will probably notice that your other workouts not only feel easier to complete but also appear to have better results.
Additional Benefits to Rebounding to Enhance Your Whole-Body Workout
One of the best benefits of rebounding is that it activates the lymphatic system of the body, enabling better flow of fluids through the lymph system, which allows it to flush toxins out of the body more easily. Rebounding also encourages blood flow throughout the body and improves oxygen intake, both of which are important if you intend to target your upper body with other exercises.
Over time, exercising with a mini trampoline will tone much more than the muscle groups of your lower body. It will help reduce the appearance of sagging skin and tighten the skin over various parts of the body. The increased blood flow it generates will improve overall circulation and help the rest of the body use nutrients more efficiently. Aerobic exercise on a regular basis also strengthens the heart and improves immune system function, helping you maintain a healthy lifestyle more easily uninterrupted by sickness and injury.
Rebounding tones your lower body muscles directly with each workout, but the additional benefits all contribute to an overall healthier lifestyle. It’s also incredibly fun, making it easier to keep up with your daily exercise routine so you can stay in shape. The extra conditioning your body receives from this aerobic exercise will go a long way toward improving your workout results from all the different exercises you enjoy.
Runners… Winter is upon us
Study shows rebounding burns fat and improves cardio better than running. A new study, published in the International Journal of Sports Science, has concluded that rebounding exercise is twice as effective at improving aerobic fitness and 50% more efficient at burning fat than running.
