Rebounding is another name for bouncing on a trampoline. It’s not only one of the most effective full-body exercises that you can do – it’s fun! A few welcome side effects that a rebounder routine can help: Improve blood flow Strengthen the heart Support proper lymph drainage Remedy constipation Lose weight Jumpstart the metabolic system The best part may be that it’s easy. It’s a low-impact form of exercise that everyone can enjoy. When people first start on an exercise program it can be intimidating because they may be out of shape. Having to suit up and go work out in front of other people can be a horrifying flash back to high school gym class. Rebounding can be done in the privacy of your home. A rebounding workout is: Aerobic. The time spent bouncing is a heart-smart, cardiovascular exercise. Low impact. Springs absorb the impact, so your joints don’t have to. Be sure to select a high-quality rebounder to receive this benefit. Cheap models may not have the infrastructure necessary to provide this benefit. Safe. Rebounders have an optional hand-rail available. The rail ensures a safe workout. Convenient. It doesn’t get much more convenient than a rebounder: it’s small and portable and even folds up for travel. Some people like to watch TV at home while they rebound. Other people like to keep it at the office to keep moving throughout the day. Versatile. There’s no limit to what can be done on a rebounder. Jogging, twisting, and jumping are common moves. Hand weights are an opportunity to take it to the next level. Rebounders are also frequently used to boost the effectiveness of interval workouts.
The Rebounding Difference
Rebounding is different than any other exercise, including its distant cousin: jogging. While rebounding, the body is subjected to gravitational forces (G-forces) that work to strengthen the cells in the body. This action increases the infection-fighting white blood cell count in the body. As you jump into the air, zero gravity is at the top of the bounce. On the way back down from the bounce, the G-force is two to three times stronger than normal. It’s this process of acceleration and deceleration that strengthens the cells. Because it’s aerobic exercise, it oxygenates the body by increasing blood flow. One of the most important benefits of rebounding is its stimulation of the body’s lymphatic system. The lymphatic system serves multiple purposes in the body: Detoxification. Lymphatic fluid runs through the body and is what carries toxic material out of the body’s cells. Rebounding stimulates the movement of the lymph fluid to encourage the drainage of the fluid carrying the toxins. Immune boost. White blood cells are what help the body fight off infection. One of the first things they test for in the emergency room is the white blood count (WBC) because an elevated count indicates that there’s an infection somewhere in the body. Rebounding helps the body grow more white blood cells and strengthens the immune system.
For All Ages
The low-impact, high-intensity workout provided by rebounding can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities. It’s a favorite choice to help improve balance for the elderly. A safer alternative to running and jogging, it decreases the pain associated with those activities.
Rebounders don’t require the expense or long-term commitment of a gym membership. Once you purchase your rebounder, you’re ready to go.
Working out doesn’t have to be a struggle to find time for when you have a rebounder. Workouts are so effective that a mere 10 minute a day will make a difference in your life. Some people break up their workouts throughout the day, spending only a few minutes at a time on the equipment.
Improves Skeletal System
Unlike other forms of exercise that put an added burden on the skeletal system, the rebounder improves the strength of the skeletal system. This helps decrease the risk of osteoporosis and broken bones.
Slow Starts Encouraged
There’s no “right way” to start a program. If it’s been a very long time since the last workout or you’re terribly out of shape, sit on the rebounder. Many people start out by sitting rather than standing.
Let’s face it, it’s fun! Half the battle with exercise is making yourself do it. When you get on the rebounder and bounce, you feel like a kid again. It’s so much easier to get ourselves to do something when we enjoy it. In fact, you’ll likely find that you enjoy it so much that you don’t have to force it at all. The Cellercise Rebounder system is about so much more than just the bounce. With free routines on the website, you’re ready to go as soon as you receive the system!
