Health Benefits of Rebounding

When I first started looking into a rebounder or mini trampoline I couldn't believe how many research articles and health benefits articles that were around about rebounding. Here's some snippets to what I discovered:

"Provides a calorie burning strength conditioning workout"

A fun workout program that builds strength, cardiovascular capacity, and balance without jarring the body like other exercises

Simultaneously works all the major muscle groups and provides a calorie burning strength conditioning exercise

A total body workout that alongside cardiovascular movements, includes abdominal exercise, squats, lunges, push-ups, dips.

NASA Says: "Rebound exercise is the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man"

And this:

32 Ways the Body responds to Rebounding

The study of the human body is fairly interesting. The moment it becomes no less than amazing is when we understand what happens as the body is placed under the demands of movement and resistance we call exercise. Rebounding is an effective exercise that reduces your body fat; firms your arms, legs, thighs, abdomen, and hips; increases your agility; strengthens your muscles overall; provides an aerobic effect for your cardiopulmonary systems; rejuvenates your body when it's tired, and generally puts you in a state of mental and physical wellness. In fact, there are at least 32 fascinating ways the body responds to regular rebounding, detailed below:

1. Rebounding provides an increased G-force (gravitational load), which strengthens the musculoskeletal systems.

2. Rebounding protects the joints from the chronic fatigue and impact delivered by exercising on hard surfaces.

3. Rebounding helps manage body composition and improves muscle-to-fat ratio.

4. Rebounding aids lymphatic circulation by stimulating the millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system.

5. Rebounding circulates more oxygen to the tissues.

6. Rebounding establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the tissues and the oxygen made available.

7. Rebounding increases capacity for respiration.

8. Rebounding tends to reduce the height to which the arterial pressures rise during exertion.

9. Rebounding lessens the time during which blood pressure remains abnormal after severe activity.

10. Rebounding assists in the rehabilitation of a heart problem.

11. Rebounding increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells.

12. Rebounding improves resting metabolic rate so that more calories are burned for hours after exercise.

13. Rebounding causes muscles to perform work in moving fluids through the body to lighten the heart's load.

14. Rebounding decreases the volume of blood pooling in the veins of the cardiovascular system preventing chronic edema.

15. Rebounding encourages collateral circulation by increasing the capillary count in the muscles and decreasing the distance between the capillaries and the target cells.

16. Rebounding strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body so that they work more efficiently.

17. Rebounding allows the resting heart to beat less often.

18. Rebounding lowers circulating cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

19. Rebounding lowers low-density lipoprotein (bad) in the blood and increases high-density lipoprotein (good) holding off the incidence of coronary artery disease.

20. Rebounding promotes tissue repair.

21. Rebounding for longer than 20 minutes at a moderate intensity increases the mitochondria count within the muscle cells, essential for endurance.

22. Rebounding adds to the alkaline reserve of the body, which may be of significance in an emergency requiring prolonged effort.

23. Rebounding improves coordination between the propreoceptors in the joints, the transmission of nerve impulses to and from the brain, transmission of nerve impulses and responsiveness of the muscle fibers.

24. Rebounding improves the brain’s responsiveness to the vestibular apparatus within the inner ear, thus improving balance.

25. Rebounding offers relief from neck and back pains, headaches, and other pain caused by lack of exercise.

26. Rebounding enhances digestion and elimination processes.

27. Rebounding allows for deeper and easier relaxation and sleep.

28. Rebounding results in better mental performance, with keener learning processes.

29. Rebounding curtails fatigue and menstrual discomfort for women.

30. Rebounding minimizes the number of colds, allergies, digestive disturbances, and abdominal problems.

31. Rebounding tends to slow down atrophy in the aging process.

32. Rebounding is an effective modality by which the user gains a sense of control and an improved self image.

People who rebound find they are able to work longer, sleep better, and feel less tense and nervous. The effect is not just psychological, because the action of bouncing up and down against gravity effectively stimulates the lymphatic system without trauma to the musculoskeletal system. This unique discovery is central to the reasons Rebounding has become one of the most beneficial forms of exercise ever developed.

Hard to go past the rebounder in the face of all that. You know, I was interested in it before I learned all these benefits because it seemed like an easy thing to jump on and get some exercise when I could. So I feel even better about getting one now!

There are many brands of rebounders out there but the Urban Rebounder is one of the best. It uses high quality materials for the frame and springs, and the mat is made of strong woven material. This mini trampoline comes in two types. One type is for home use and the other type is for gym or commercial use. The gym model has a user capacity of 350 pounds while the home model has a maximum user weight of 300 pounds.

Bouncing on a rebounder is not only fun...It has actually some health benefits like it is a good cardio exercise, improves blood circulation and helps tone the muscles, not to mention burning excess calories.
