Jump on the trampoline as much as you can!
Or how an activity that is considered childish, can have so many benefits! Bouncing on the trampoline really does wonders for our well-being. NASA describes this type of exercise as the most effective form of exercise devised by man, three times more effective than running. The best thing is that it combines fun and intense exercise, those of you who have jumped on a trampoline will already know that. Although it's hard fat-loss exercise, you don't feel the same amount of effort as when you go out for a run.
But to see in more detail the benefits of exercising on the trampoline:
It is aerobic exercise that improves cardiovascular condition and lowers blood pressure. Bouncing helps the muscles to contract, resulting in rhythmic compression of the veins and arteries. This helps move fluids more efficiently through the body and back to the heart, thereby reducing peripheral blood pressure.
It improves the balance and coordination of the body, as during the exercise you are forced to be constantly aware of your center of balance. The more you practice jumping, the more improvement you see in your motor skills and coordination. It is also no coincidence that it is a basic tool of occupational therapists for children with motor coordination problems.
It is one of the forms of exercise recommended by those involved in the brain gym, as it helps the brain to build synapses and neural pathways while at the same time improving memory by enhancing blood circulation in the brain and helping it to function properly in general .
Repetitive bouncing puts little stress on our bones. Over time, this compresses the bones and makes them denser, reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Research shows that accelerating and decelerating jumps on a trampoline causes the body to interpret the movement as an increase in gravitational pull. Our bones thus gain strength and density with exercise, which is also great for preventing injury in the long run.
This change in gravitational pressure initiates the lymphatic system, which transports immune cells throughout the body to build defenses against infections, thus boosting the immune system. The lymphatic and cardiovascular systems work together to keep blood and lymph fluid levels balanced and eliminate toxins.
It is an exercise with very little load on the joints. Trampolines are soft and absorb shocks and up to 80% of the pressure from the joints of the lower limbs. Physiotherapists also use the trampoline as a rehabilitation tool to strengthen the joints of the lower limbs.
When it comes to weight loss, the trampoline is actually a fun way to get some serious work done, as you can burn the same amount of fat as a 30 minute run in a ten minute session! Even more, it is a form of exercise that boosts the metabolic rate so that the body processes nutrients more efficiently.
So fun jumps that are equivalent to jumps for the benefit of your health! You can combine it with music, choreography and spins that will excite you! Enjoy!
