Suitable For All Ages
Rebounding will place no strain on the joints of your body. Your feet don’t even have to leave the surface of the mat for you to notice health benefits in a very short time. Even if you can’t stand on the rebounder, sitting on it and bouncing will have pronounced benefits. Just put on your favorite up tempo music and bounce along. If you need to hold onto something when you first begin to rebound, place your rebounder behind a high-back chair.
Rebounding For Health
Your risk of dying from a degenerative disease, including the number one killer, heart disease, and the number two killer, cancer, increases without regular daily exercise. Every cell in your body depends on a rich supply of oxygen and essential nutrients. Rebounding will increase the circulation of your blood and stimulate the flow of lymph throughout the lymphatic system, thus increasing the delivery of oxygen to cells throughout your body.
In addition, rebounding is an exercise that can be adjusted to your current level of fitness. It’s easy on your joints and back and can be performed in your home at your convenience, meaning no more trips to the local health club. Because rebounding is sufficiently gentle, participation by the elderly and pregnant women is entirely safe.
Rebounding burns more calories than jogging. In a study conducted at the University of Kentucky, in conjunction with NASA, it was found that “the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running.” In plain English, in any given amount of time a person will burn roughly 15% more calories bouncing on a rebounder than they will if they jog at the pace of five miles per hour.
Toxins Released By Rebounding
According to Dr. Arthur C. Guyton, “During exercise, the rate of lymph flow can increase to as high as 14 times normal because of the increased activity.” The change in gravitational forces experienced during rebounding allows for greater blood flow. This helps the body rid itself of toxins, dead cells, cancer cells, trapped protein, infectious viruses, heavy metals, and other cast-offs the body no longer needs.
Studies have shown a strong link between exercise and mortality rates. To lower your risk of early death and keep your body from ‘wearing out’ you need to exercise on a regular basis.
Exercise helps prevent heart disease. Rebounding helps keep your blood flowing. This helps to prevent your arteries from clogging and improve your cardiac performance. The contraction of muscles during rebounding acts like a pump to circulate your blood back up to the heart for fresh oxygen. Working your heart harder on a regular basis improves its overall function so it doesn’t have to work as hard during normal activities.
Rebounding increases your red blood cell count. This allows for faster oxygen transport throughout the body, which can help lower elevated blood pressure.
The capacity of your lungs also increases which enables you to process more air. This replenishes the cells in the tissues and organs of your body quicker. As a result, your metabolism is enhanced and you tend to absorb nutrients from your food more efficiently.
