Rebounding (jumping on a mini trampoline) is truly one of the best exercises for the human body, and it’s so easy virtually anyone can reap the benefits. The importance of exercise is common knowledge; we need cardiovascular exercise to strengthen the heart and lungs, as well as weight bearing movements to increase muscle mass and bone health. Rebounding packs a 1-2 punch by providing a cardiovascular workout as well as strengthening our muscles, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits you will receive.
Rebounding is unique since it uses the forces of acceleration and deceleration, and can work every cell in the body. When you jump on a rebounder, several actions happen:
- An acceleration action as you bounce upward
- A weightless pause at the top
- A deceleration as you go down (with increased G-force)
- Impact on the rebounder
Each cell in the body has to respond to both the acceleration and deceleration, and the rebounding motion strengthens all internal organs, moves the cerebral-spinal fluid, and does wonders for the intestines. Many people also report improved eyesight due to the movement of aqueous fluid in the eyes.
All cells in the body are strengthened in response to the increased G-force, and this cellular exercise results in immune cells being up to 5 times more active. Therefore, this exercise directly strengthens the immune system.
Rebounding not only will drop body fat, firm your entire body, increase agility, and improve your sense of balance, but the cardiovascular benefits are staggering. Studies show that 20 minuteson a rebounder=1 hour of running.
NASA went in search for the best possible exercise to help astronauts recover and regain bone mass that was lost in space. NASA reports that “Rebound exercise is the most efficient and effective exercise devised by man.”
But wait,there’s more….One of the most amazing things about rebounding is its effect on detoxification. We have more lymph fluid in our body than blood, and the lymph fluid is home to all the metabolic waste products such as cancerous cells, infectious viruses, fat, heavy metals, and other assorted toxins. Unfortunately, unlike the blood which uses the heart as a pump to move it around, the lymph fluid has no pump and requires exercise in which to move it around and get it out of the body. The movement performed during rebounding helps the body drain away these potential poisons with very little strain on the body.
