Trampoline exercises are making a comeback! Leg day, arm day, ab day; your rebounder has you covered! Did you know that jumping on a mini-trampoline is one of the best forms of exercise? It's a high energy, low-impact exercise that allows you to relieve stress and lose pounds in one of the most effective ways possible. What are so great about trampoline exercises? There are several benefits of rebounding but here are 3 of our favorites:
ARMS: Tone and build muscle
Yes, fitness trampoline exercises can tone your arms! Part of a total body workout is concentrating on other key muscles groups like your upper body and core abdominal muscles. Krista Popowych, JumpSport Master trainer, shows us how to use a JumpSport Fitness Trampoline frame for a push up; a push-up hop on the jumping mat, and offers a comfortable way to plank so your fore-arms don't suffer.
ABS: Fight the belly bulge
Our stomach and lower abdomen is usually a major problem area for most people trying to lose weight. Ab crunching is one of the best ways to target this muscle group. However, it's not always the most comfortable doing these exercises on a gym mat. How about doing them on your fitness trampoline? Krista has a great Cure for Ab Flab video where she demonstrates different moves targeting the core. Sitting on the trampoline can relieve pressure on your lower back making sit-ups, crunches, and other seated trampoline exercises more comfortable. What else can trampoline exercises help you?
@$$: Firm your booty with bouncing
Your gluts and thighs are the biggest muscles on your body; the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn. But if we don't work those muscles, they "weigh us down" and become another problem area on our bodies. What's our solution; jumping of course! Bouncing strengthens every muscle, organ, tissue, bone at a cellular level! You'll lose weight, increase your metabolism, improve coordination and balance, lower your cholesterol, and have more energy. In this third video, Krista shows us how to effectively use the trampoline exercises for squats and lunges.
