One of the ways to get cardiovascular exercise is through rebounding….a form of exercise using a mini trampoline that you should know about. In addition to building muscular strength, rebounding is extremely gentle on bones and joints because you’re bouncing on a surface that “gives,” so there’s no solid ground to create a hard impact every time you land. And speaking of bones... Rebounding aids in improved bone density because of the constant gravitational pressure that you are bouncing against. This is weight bearing exercise at its best!

If that isn’t enough to convince you, rebounding strengthens the heart muscle; 20 minutes of rebounding is equal to one hour of running for cardiovascular exercise!

Okay, still not convinced. The vertical up and down movement of rebounding builds cellular strength which aids in the pumping action of the lymphatic system and increases lymph flow by 15-30 times! This has a profound effect on detoxification.  In order for the lymph system to do its job, it requires movement. Otherwise, cells sit in waste products and can’t receive good nutrition. This lack of movement contributes to arthritis, cancer, and other degenerative diseases. This type of bouncing movement is vital as we age because our bodies may become more toxic due to pollutants in the environment.

One more thing, there is no need to get “air” between you and the rebounder.  Just a type of “walking” action will give you the same health benefits.

Check out this additional list of reasons to try rebounding:

*Strengthens immune system
*Can improve eyesight due to the movement of the aqueous fluid in the eyes
*Improves natural, regular bowel movements for people suffering from chronic constipation
*Reduces body fat
*Improves balance and agility

So now you know.  Give it a try…you might like it!
