Rebounding Benefits

There are many rebounding benefits. This is one of my favorite forms of exercise. You can get a great workout in only 10 - 15 minutes.

Research Behind A Rebounder

  1. 1979 - Journal of Applied Physiology reported that biochemical stimuli are greater with jumping on a trampoline than running.
  2. 1980 - NASA found there was no undue stress on the body with rebounding, and oxygen consumption with rebounding was twice as efficient as treadmill running.
  3. 10 minutes of rebounding is the equivalent of 30 minutes of jogging.
  4. Recent geriatric studies show balance and coordination of Seniors greatly improved with rebounding.

How Rebounding Works

  1. At the top of a bounce, you are weightless.
  2. At the bottom, the G Force is doubled which causes stress on every one of your cells to promote change.
  3. The 75 trillion cells in your body flex approximately 100 times per minute. Every cell in your body is getting a workout!

Rebounder Recommendations

The best rebounders have a 'soft' bounce. Of the best, there are spring rebounders and bungee cord rebounders. I own both kinds. My favorite is the bungee rebounder because they are so quiet.

There are several models but I really like the middle model. The legs are arched, which gives it a lot of stabilty. Here's the one I have:

I also got the Handle Bar Accesory. There are 2 options. The one that replaces 2 of the legs is just awful. It's cheaper, but I couldn't get it fit and ended up returning it. The quick-release one is much easier to attach and also easy to take off if you want to.
