Today is Day 3 and I’m still seeing health benefits of my rebounding trampoline usage! Ok, let’s be real. It is easy to be consistent for three days in an exercise program. Three months can be a little bit more challenging. However, I’m still enjoying the noticeable benefits that I gain from jumping on my rebounding trampoline. It is awesome and I love it, so I’m sharing my results online.
I slept really soundly last night. I didn’t wake up during the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. I felt like I needed less sleep as well. (This could be confirmed with my Fitbit the next time I remember to use it!)
When I felt stressed out, I was able to refocus my mind on the task at hand. For example, yesterday I wanted to upload a video to youtube. My technology was giving me fits. Instead of giving up, I spent a few minutes on my rebounder. I expected to spend a long time on my rebounder and just give up on the task and put it off until another day, but my mind was working through the problem as I bounced. I successfully uploaded the video to youtube and even put some keywords with it so people could discover it online. For me, that was a win!
My breathing with my rebounder is calmer. I learned the Buteyko breathing method and always breath through my nose when I exercise and throughout the day. I’m noticing that my breath is calm and slow, which is what I want!
I’m feeling more alert and focused. I’m getting more done and it is better and better quality! Even though I am only on the rebounder for a few minutes at a time, the amount of oxygenation that the brain receives enables it to focus more throughout the day.
One of the benefits that people share about rebounding is that it improves your posture. Even though it has only been 3 days of consistent usage, I am starting to believe that there will be a great impact on my posture. Why? A few times during the day, I found myself standing up straighter. Psychologically, I am believing that this is beneficial, so I am tending to correct my posture subconsciously as the muscles strengthen. Is it a real benefit? Not yet, but a perceived benefit can be just as great!
What are other sites saying about the health benefits of rebounding trampoline usage?
1. Rebounding increases the G-force, or gravitational load, which strengthens the muscles.
2. Joints are protected by rebounding due to the softer landing.
3. Rebounding can help you improve the muscle to fat ratio of your body composition.
4. Rebounding increases lymphatic circulation by stimulating the one way valves in the lymphatic system. This helps the body prevent future illness.
5. Rebounding is effective in circulating more oxygen to the tissues.
6. Rebounding is able to establish a more effective equilibrium between the oxygen required by the tissues and the oxygen made available.
7. Rebounding increases respiration. You will sweat quickly during a rebounding exercise!
8. Rebounding tends to reduce the height to which the arterial pressures rise during exertion.
10. Rebounding assists in the rehabilitation of existing heart problems. Rebound Exercise also benefits recovery from heart procedures, providing gentle, low impact circulation.
11. Rebounding increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells.
12. Rebounding gradually improves resting metabolic rate so that more calories are burned for hours after exercise. Related, Rebound Exercise benefits the post-exercise “Glycogen Replenishment” process.
13. Rebounding causes core muscles and large muscle groups to contract, resulting in the rhythmic compression of the veins and arteries, which more effectively moves fluids, both blood and lymphatic, through the body and back to the heart, lowering peripheral blood pressure and lightening 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 decreases the heart rate by strengthening the heart muscle.
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. Extended rebounding (rebounding for more than 20 minutes) at a moderate intensity increases the mitochondria count inside muscle cells. This increases your endurance.
22. Rebounding benefits 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.
24. Rebounding improves the brain’s responsiveness to the vestibular apparatus within the inner ear, thus improving balance.
25. Rebounding on a mini trampoline offers relief from pain due to lack of exercise. Rebounding has also been shown to improve a person’s posture by strengthening the core muscles.
26. Rebounding improves digestion and elimination processes by increasing peristalsis.
27. Rebounding enables deeper sleep and relaxation at night.
29. Rebounding helps to alleviate premenstrual systems i women.
30. Rebounding reduces the number of colds and allergy symptoms.
31. Rebounding slows down the aging process and muscle atrophy.
32. Rebounding improves your self image.
