Rebounding as a form of exercise is quickly gaining in popularity. This is mainly because of the many benefits that it provides. There are still many misconceptions about this form of exercise though. For one, some people think that there is only one type of rebounding exercise – jumping up and down on a mini trampoline. The truth is, there are many exercise routines that you can on a mini trampoline.
Below are just some of the things you can do on a rebounder.
Heel bouncing. Heel bouncing is very similar to regular bouncing, the only difference is that for every bounce, you will be moving one foot forward and let the heel of that foot touch the trampoline. You should alternate your feet and swing your arm forward as your heel touches the surface of the trampoline.
Rebound jogging. Regular jogging done on pavement or on a treadmill is a good exercise. But it can also put a lot pressure on your joints. You can still get the benefits of jogging minus the risk of suffering from injuries by jogging on a mini trampoline. Jogging on a mini trampoline is very similar to jogging in place. Perform at the pace you are comfortable with and move your arms naturally.
Use other exercise equipment. You can also use other exercise equipment to get the most out of your rebounding workout. You can use weights to help tone your muscles better. You can even use a jumping rope to get a better cardio workout.
