Rebound trampolines are great for losing weight, increasing mental health, improving balance, and having fun. With many varieties available in an array of shapes and colors it is no wonder that they are becoming common place in houses across America. But what makes a rebound so effective?
When you use a trampoline, you are putting your body through a very unique experience. By bouncing for five to ten minutes a day you are lowering your risk of cardiovascular disease, fighting osteoarthritis, increasing bone density, working your lymphatic system, and increasing motor skills.
Using a rebounder trampoline is a great way to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Simply by moving, it will strengthen your heart, increasing your pulse rate. By strengthening your involuntary and voluntary muscular systems, your cardiovascular system becomes more efficient. Lastly it strengthens the legs, allowing them to act as an auxiliary pump. This lessens the strain on your heart allowing for lower blood pressure.
How the bounce works: at the base of your bounce, the gravitational force or more commonly known G force, is at its peak, closing the one-way valves that separate your lymphatic system and cells, causing toxins to be squeezed right out from the cells. As your body reaches apex, toxins become loosened and nutrients are passed from the lymph to the cells.
The lymph system houses lymphocytes, an example of this would be your white blood cells. White blood cells consume metabolic waste, bacteria, and dead cells. Another type of lymphocyte is known as T-cells. T-cells are cells that enter cancer cells, and destroy them by injecting hydrogen peroxide into the cancer cells. When not suffering from an immunity disease such as H.I.V, your cells will actively seek out cancer cells, keeping them from spreading out of control. Some hospitals have even begun using rebound trampolines as therapy. By doing a “health bounce”, a motion where they remain on the mat as the patient uses gentle bouncing motions. By rebounding two minutes every hour the patients are able to actively prevent and in some cases treat cancer.
Trampolines are also a great way to increase bone density. Recent studies show that people who exercise fifteen minutes a session at lease three times a week have a higher mineral content than those who are less active, decreasing your risks of breaks and fractures. This means that you are actively fighting off osteoarthritis.
Other important benefits that can be found by using your rebound trampoline are improvement of balance and coordination, toning your body, strengthening your circulatory system, and many users claim that it can even be used as a form of headache relief.
No matter what your age, you can find a wide array of benefits, from your head to your toes, rebounding is a great way to get in shape, improve over-all health, and improve your cardiovascular system. Next time you are at the gym, walk over to the rebound trampolines, and try one out. You will immediately begin to feel its positive effects.
