Requirement of Effective Exercise: Part III Endurance

When you Rebound you fulfill the four requirement of an effective exercise:
·        Strength (covered in Part I)
·        Aerobic capability (covered in Part II)
·        Flexibility (covered in Part II)
·        Endurance 


Everyone wants endurance, not just the athletic type.  Not one likes to feel the afternoon droop and end of going to bed while the sun is still out.  I think most people want to have enough energy to be able to function throughout the whole day and to also have the muscle strength and endurance to be able to ac accomplish whatever task is presented or that we decide to do.   Muscular endurance is important.  It’s also important from a nutritional point of view in getting enough of the right and good kind of food to be able to have the fuel necessary for the day.  We call that metabolic endurance.

Exercise doesn’t that make you tired?  You would think that it would and in some cases it might.  When you exercise with a rebounder you are working your body at the cellular level.  There’s a system called the mitochondria also known as the power plant or furnace and produces energy for the cells in your body.  It does this by taking glucose and oxygen and transforming it into energy.  When we exercise the mitochondria can divide and create many more mitochondria if needed.  When our body is done with exercise the mitochondria goes back to normal or the same number of mitochondria.  By having regular workouts the body is awake and knows how to regulate our energy source, which will make us feel a whole lot better throughout the day.

Requirement of Effective Exercise: Part II Advantages of Aerobic Effect & Flexibility

When you Rebound you fulfill the four requirement of an effective exercise:

Strength (covered in Part I)

Aerobic capability



Advantages of Aerobic Effect

When you rebound you get a great aerobic workout and this provides two of the greatest benefits: increase of oxygen and the stimulation of the lymph system.  Together these two great systems help in burning more calories, destroying toxins, getting rid of waste, and delivering the vital nutrients required to survive.  Rebounding increases the stimulation of these two systems and is vital to optimal health.    


Rebounding not only is 68% more effective then regular exercise but it is also provides 87% less stress and strain to the knees and ankles when bouncing.   Rebounding is the perfect way to warm up and relax the body and this will help with flexibility.  There are various different exercises that you can perform on the rebounder.  We will discuss some of these in a later posting.

Requirement of Effective Exercise: Part I Strengthening

When you Rebound you fulfill the four requirement of an effective exercise:
·        Strength
·        Aerobic capability
·        Flexibility
·        Endurance


When you think of strength training you would normally think of body builders.  Strength training is one of the vital requirements in living a healthy lifestyle.  Rebounding, being a resistance exercise, helps to keep the muscles strong and flexible while also strengthening the bones.  Rebounding is an effective way to use all the muscles in the body while putting a healthy stress on the bones.  Doing this daily will help the improvement of physical appearance, athletic power and metabolic function.  For weight loss, rebounding increases metabolism, tones and slims the body.  Strength training is vital to staying trim and slim because of the fact that muscle burns more calories then fat.  So, by building more muscle your body will burn off more fat.  Strength training does more then help with physical things, it also helps in the release of endorphins which helps people with depression, anxiety and stress.

Strength training through rebounding is the perfect way to stay fit and healthy while aging.  It increases your metabolism, which in turn gives your energy levels a boost.  You receive an increase of blood flow, which helps with keeping your skin and hair healthy.  Your bones will receive an increase in bone mineral density and has also been shown to improve balance, which helps against falls.

The main point that we are trying to make is that strength training with a rebounder helps in providing the essentials for life to exist through the billions of cells throughout our body.  Those essentials are oxygen, nutrients and removal of waste products.

What is Rebounding?

Rebounding is an exercise that is a therapeutic movement on a mini-trampoline.  They also call it a cellular exercise because it is involved with moving all parts of the body.  We all have many systems in our body that perform different bodily functions.  The heart pumps the blood to different parts of the body is one example of this.  We also have a system called the lymphatic system (white blood system) but this system does not have a pump.  The only thing that makes this system work is movement.  When movement stimulates the lymph system it moves the lymph fluid around the body, which removes toxins and delivers vital nutrients to the cells.

When using rebounding as an exercise it is one exercise that is superior to any other because it uses gravity and two other forces known as acceleration and deceleration.  When you are bouncing and are at the top of your bounce you experience weightlessness, and when you are at the bottom of your bounce your weight ends up doubling pulling you into the center of the rebounder.

Main Benefits of Rebounding

a) As we said before, rebounding is a CELLULAR EXERCISE, which in turn will strengthen every cell in the body.
b) Rebounding is 68% more effective then your regular exercises because:
Acceleration and deceleration are in effect which doubles your weight at the bottom of the bounce.  Because of this effect you can do what would take 1hr of regular exercise and do it in 30 minutes on a rebounder.
Rebounding is also gentler on the knees and ankles unlike other exercises.  

c) Rounding and DETOXIFICATION EFFECTS.  This is all done by the lymphatic system, which cleans and brings nutrients to the billions of cells throughout the body.  The system only works by the movement of our body, which makes rebounding an excellent tool in doing this.

Rebounding is a cellular exercise (it strengthens every cell)

To determine a person’s health will depend on how well the billions of cells that make up the body are functioning.    All the cells in the body need plenty of oxygen and essential nutrients, which will create the energy necessary for optimal performance.  When circulation slows down so does the removal of wastes, toxins, and plasma proteins causing it to be garbage landfill around the cell walls.

Once you have reached adulthood your body consists of billions and billions of cells that try to maintain themselves against all odds that surround them.  Cells multiple and enlarge to keep up with the demands of the body.  Rebounding provides a low impact aerobic exercise for your cells.

You can ‘overstress’ cells, while doing any aerobic exercise, which cause rupture of the cell, and injury is sustained. 

You can also apply ‘too little stress’, and this can cause cells to degenerate and weaken.  With rebounding you ‘stress’ the cells perfectly which causes a cleansing and makes the cell strong.

It’s important to remember that every cell in your body depends on a rich supply of oxygen and essential nutrients that come from your food.

Exercise becomes truly beneficial when you increase the flow of blood and lymph, and stimulate the respiratory system to deliver more oxygen to the cells.  Rebounding does exactly all these things and in return you have stronger cells.

Rebounding's stabilizing effect on the nervous system

How would you like to be put into a trance like state where you are able to relieve stress from your body?  Rebounding and jumping on the trampoline will do just that!  During jumping and rebounding your nervous system stabilizes causing the release of stress.  This not only happens during your exercise, but also will help continue to maintain your stability once you step off the trampoline. 
The result:
·         You will increase your resistance to environmental, physical, emotional, and mental stress.
·         It may also aid an individual in being able to avoid psychosomatic disease and mental or behavioral instability. 
Rebounding and jumping on the trampoline can be a life long adventure that can be enjoyed over and over again.  Not only that but you are able to adjust it to your own personal level of fitness.   Put it to the test and try rebounding and  find out how much stress it will relieve you of.  I think you will be surprised!

Rebounding Oxygenating Effect

If you meet these next requirements you are more then likely never to experience or develop a heart problem unless you already have one.
1.    Have a resting heart rate of less than 60 beats a minute.
2.    Are not experiencing chest pains.
3.    Are engaged in a healthy lifestyle.
4.    Put forth a effort in doing rebounding for 40 minutes or more a day, at least five days a week

When you are rebounding or jumping on a trampoline you hit your target heart rate zone when you do it for the recommended 40 minutes. 
When you rebound and jump it strengthens your heart in the next two ways:

1.    The muscle itself is improved, toned, making it a better quality.
2.    The fibers coordination is increased as they wring blood out of the heart during each beat.

The effect of an aerobic workout like that of rebounding-jumping normally will supersede that of running. 

The measurements of the effects of rebounding/jumping will very depending on how hard and how high you will jump.  Rebounding/jumping create an oxygenating exercise and will work at any rate of performance.
