Rebounding is a low impact aerobic exercise that is performed while bouncing on a mini trampoline. This exercise is easy on the joints and allows you to work your cardiovascular system without being strenuous on your body.
The reason why we choose rebounders over mini trampolines is because mini trampolines have a more flexible mat and this may cause you to injure your knees, hips and ankles. The design of rebounders is firmer and thus it gives you a better bounce than most mini trampolines. If you are interested in starting rebounding as an exercise I would suggest that you purchase one from Lisa Raleigh as her rebounders have the following features:
- The base and frame of the rebounder is easily foldable.
- The mat of the rebounder is of a high quality with a grey safety indicator.
- The rebounder has jumbo springs that are secured onto the frame.
- The rebounder has 6 spring loaded legs that are attached to the frame with steel bolts.
- You can buy support bars and a lightweight carry bag as extras.
How does rebounding work?
Rebounding is a type of elastically leveraged exercise that uses the forces of acceleration and deceleration as well as the forces of gravity at the same time. Rebounding lets every cell in your body adjust to a situation that it is not used to, your body is then required to work harder to resist gravity and stabilize itself on a vertical plane. This is why rebounding exercises your whole body.
Why is rebounding good for the lymphatic system?
The main purpose of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. The lymphatic system mainly consists of lymphatic vessels, which are similar to the veins and vessels of the circulatory system.
The lymph is entirely reliant on physical exercise to move as the lymph system washes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. If the cells don’t move, the cells are left simmering in their own waste products and starving for nutrients that can contribute to arthritis, cancer and other diseases. Rebounding is said to increase the lymph flow by 15 to 30 times. Rebounding reduces your body fat, firms your arms, abs, hips, thighs and legs, it improves your balance and increases your alertness. Further it strengthens your muscles, offers a good workout for your heart, restores your body when it’s tired and is good for overall health and fitness.
