Rebounding: Bounce Your Way to Better Health
Bounce Your Way to a Better Body
Kelly tries a trampoline workout
1.It's not about jumping high. You do simple moves: pliés (ballet squats); jumping your feet out and in, sort of like a jumping jack; running in place. (Find a routine at reebokfitness.info or on .) The great thing is that you have to engage your whole body, including your abs, to maintain your balance.
2.Anyone can do it. I told the instructor, "If this were me before losing weight, I wouldn't be so inclined to jump up and down on a trampoline." She explained that it's a low-impact workout, like swimming—the springy surface takes the pressure off your joints. She has a 78-year-old client who takes her trampoline class three times a week! And if you're a little heavier, you can start by doing just a gentle bounce.
3.Bouncing is a cure-all. The first time I tried it, I had a headache. By the time I got off the trampoline, it was gone. I learned that this is because the up-and-down motion helps clear out your lymphatic system; without proper lymph flow, you hold on to toxins that can lead to headaches.
4.You reallycanlose weight. My instructor has a client who, in one month, lost eight pounds—just from trampolining twice a week.
Choose the right trampoline for you
Kelly's trampoline is huge, but a cheap mini version works fine too. The portable ones (often called rebounders) are about four feet wide and not even a foot off the ground—store it under your bed. You can find one for less than , like the Variflex 38-inch Mini Band Trampoline (; ).
