Rebounding exercise is 68 percent more efficient than jogging, according to NASA's Journal of Applied Physiology. A NASA study also discovered that a 150-pound person spending an hour on a rebounder will burn more calories than the same person jogging for an hour. Rebounding on a trampoline is a metabolic-supporting workout since you can still breathe easily if you rebound at a modest pace. It gets you active while not taxing your metabolism.
Cardiovascular exercise strengthens the heart muscles and reduces the amount of work your body must do to pump blood. This can reduce your:
All of this is, of course, excellent news for your general cardiovascular health.
As we age, our bones get weaker, so it's critical to begin doing activities that will strengthen our bone density. According to one study, competitive trampolinists have a greater bone density at the hip and spine than their contemporaries. Of course, most individuals aren't competitive trampolinists - yet research suggests that trampolining regularly can help strengthen your bones, lowering your risk of osteoporosis.
In terms of bone density, as we age, our bone density decreases, which increases our chances of being harmed in a fall. However, one study discovered that 14 weeks of mini-trampoline workouts boosted seniors' capacity to regain their balance before falling by approximately 35%. Rebounding has been linked to improved balance, coordination, and motor skills, which can be especially beneficial for persons who are prone to falling.
Jumping, as opposed to targeted training, necessitates the utilization of several muscles. When you jump, you use your entire body's momentum, which compels all of your muscles to operate at the same time. All of that up-and-down movement works everything from your stomach and glutes to your leg and back muscles, strengthening your core and even beyond.
There could be something to the expression "jump for joy." Exercise is related to stress relief in general because it releases endorphins, which are natural compounds that help you feel better and retain a happy attitude. Because of the special effect, it has on your body, rebounding is specifically related to stress alleviation. Jumping causes you to tense and relax your muscles repeatedly, which is beneficial to your circulation. When you're finished jumping, your muscles should be loose and relaxed.
While rebounding, there is a considerable increase in "biomechanical stimuli." This means that trampoline bouncing is better for your body than running, and NASA now employs trampoline exercises to recondition astronauts during spacewalks to prevent muscle and bone degradation.
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that aid in the elimination of body poisons, waste, and other undesired items. Unlike the circulatory system, which relies on the heart to automatically pump blood, the lymphatic system relies only on human activity as a pump. Lymphatic flow is entirely dependent on our conscious movement. Rebounding on a trampoline is a whole-body workout that can induce lymphatic valves to open and close concurrently, resulting in up to a 15x increase in lymph flow.
The lymphatic system is an essential component of the immune system. It serves as a barrier against viruses, germs, illnesses, and infections. The lymph contains a large number of lymphocytes, which are white blood cells that are responsible for fighting infections in the body. Rebounding enables the lymphatic system's valves to open and close simultaneously, increasing lymph flow by up to 15 times. This improves immunity, eliminates toxins, and slows the aging process.
Bouncing on a trampoline is similar to pumping your body. Rebounding encourages the thyroid gland to begin cleansing itself and the lymphatic system of accumulated fat. Trampoline exercise is the most effective approach to getting rid of cellulite.
