Trampoline could be the only most effective workout you need! Here are the benefits of rebounding and some online workouts you can follow.
My daughter only went to school for 3 months in 2020. The rest of the time she was at home with my very active toddler. Both my kids are really active and are early rises. On a daily basis every morning they would go to the park and also in the evenings. But because of the lockdown, it has been hard for them. So my husband decided to surprise us with a new trampoline! It was the best exercise equipment ever! Did you know in Japan the sale of trampoline was at an all time high rapidly during the first corona outbreak.
So why is trampolining such a good workout?
The perfect at-home workout and affordable purchase. I bought mine here! It didn’t take that much space in my apartment. It is the most fun, easiest way to start a workout! I could just blast a song and start hopping away on the trampoline. I suggest you also put up a good sports bra while doing it. The fun workout video I’ve been following is by Hip Shake Fitness. My kids favourite video is by SanFran Fitness. If you’re into HIIT Workout here’s a great video to follow by GymRa.
Easiest way towards a slim figure
My personal goal was to get back my pre baby body. I’ve gained 25 kg from my first pregnancy and 15 kg from my second pregnancy. I was determined to get back my body. I really cannot do diets. I can’t believe one week into it I’ve lost almost 4kg! Trampoline is more effective than any cardio workout. I just needed to do 10 minutes of the trampoline and my heart was pounding like I ran a 1km. I was sweating and I didn’t have any body aches, pains days after the workout.
Low impact on joints
Did you know 20 minutes of jumping on the trampoline is equivalent to an hour of running. Since the rebounding is absorbed by the spring. It’s a low impact exercise that is kind on our joints. It was a great workout for me after my accident. My hip was weak and I couldn’t jog like before. I was beyond sad that I had to take a break from my morning runs. But with this trampoline I could get the same impact workout as my morning runs minus the impact on my hips and my joints.
“…for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running, a finding that might help identify acceleration parameters needed for the design of remedial procedures to avert deconditioning in persons exposed to weightlessness.” –NASA
Detoxifier for the body
The lymphatic system is the second circulatory system so instead of blood circulating, it is circulating lymph. Lymph is a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells. The Lymphatic system helps keep you alive by getting rid of our body’s unwanted toxins and waste. By bouncing on the trampoline it starts activating your lymph system where no other exercise could. It helps with the detoxing of your body when you start bouncing it ensures the lymph system to start moving. The only way to encourage the lymphatic fluid is through muscle contractions. The bouncing encourages the muscle to move better to keep the detoxing of the system.
I can exercise for less time and have more benefits.
Improves spinal alignment and posture
Since I was young, my back was a “S” curve. I was in so much pain, I just got used to it all my life. My pregnancy was the worst! In just a couple of weeks of rebounding I could totally and improve my posture and my back did not curve as much as before. Even my parents, both physiotherapists, were impressed with the improvement of my back. I felt finally free from my years of struggling with back pain. My back is finally straight and stronger. Plus, I did grow almost 7 cm taller. I use to put ice and hot packs every week. Now I don’t even need to!
On top of other things, I would totally recommend the mini trampoline if you want to:
- Boost your immune system
- Improve your balance, coordination and reaction time
- Increase in energy
- Reducing cellulite
- Improve your sleep
- Tightens your skin and a natural facelift
- Improve your digestion
- Increase lung capacity and respiration
- Improve your mood and mental health
- Only spend a few minutes a day for a better health (10 minutes is enough)
Now I just need to put on a high energy song and start bouncing away. Just needed only 5 songs to hit my daily exercise target! It’s a fun way to spend time with my kids and karate kick away all my stress!
