How to Improve Your Health By Rebounding

Rebounder TrampolineThe health benefits of rebounding exercise are numerous. That is why it ranks high on my favorite forms of exercise because it’s easy, it’s enjoyable, and it’s safe for just about anybody of any age group.

Improving Circulation and Blood Pressure: The health benefits that come with rebounding can sustain and build up all cells of the body, including your heart muscle. As the heart muscle becomes enhanced, it starts to require less effort and time to pump blood all around the body. The body muscles then will require less oxygen as they become more efficient.

Increasing Lymphatic Circulation: The lymphatic system is the network of vessels that are responsible for the removal of toxins from the cells. The system relies heavily on the external pressure to haul its contents through one-way opening valves, because it does not possess its own ability to pump. When you bounce, the lymphatic system actively works to pump out all of those toxic wastes from your body’s cells. The lymph system bathes every single cell, and this system becomes much more efficient at clearing waste.

Increase Energy

My personal experience with this can coincide with several reports that rebounding can give you higher levels of energy, and does not leave you feeling tired and exhausted compared to other exercises that are out there.

Increase Metabolism

Regular rebounding exercise assists with the base metabolic rate which makes for easier weight management. You are more likely to burn quite a few more calories at an increased rate to help you to maintain your desired weight after your metabolic rate increases.

Building Bone Density

Other health benefits of rebounding will put you on or within the same level as astronauts who are required to redevelop their bone mass. NASAs studies have shown that rebounding is great exercise to aide astronauts in rebuilding the lost bone mass that is caused by extended periods of time spent in a weightlessness state in space. Here, without rebounding, they possibly lost up to fifteen percent of their bone mass in only two weeks time. Rebounding can also be used to help stop or prevent osteoporosis.

Considerable tests on rebounding have also shown that it is extremely helpful for patients with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The relief felt by arthritis patients just by doing a few minutes of rebounding a couple of times a week can often be dramatic. However, only light rebounding for such patients is recommended at that start of an exercise regime so as not to overwork their bones.

Improving Your Back and Knee Problems

The health benefits of this exercise can assist in the strengthening of both the spine and back muscles without the unnecessary strain of having to run on a hard surface. It also helps avoid unwanted shin splints and knee problems associated with exercising on hard surfaces.

Athletes routinely suffer from knee problems. Studies have shown that up to 70% of avid joggers suffer from a running related injury in only their first year of running. Rebounding can help to build up your muscle strength and effectively help avoid these common injuries.

Improving Balance

Rebounding has demonstrated to improve, and even correct, your balance and coordination due to the surface of the rebounder. It slightly moves the body in various directions to give optimal stimulation to the body’s ability to balance itself.

Since rebounding directly acts on and improves all these body systems, even a few minutes a day can help you get a jump start on improving all aspects of your health. Just do it a few times a week and you’re sure to see improvements. Please, remember to speak to your general practitioner before beginning a new exercise regime of any kind.
