Rebounding: The At-Home Exercise You Need to Be Doing for Your Health

What exactly is rebounding? It’s a low-impact cardiovascular exercise performed by jumping on a mini-trampoline.

It’s great for all ages, can be done fast or slow, and it’s gentle on the joints!

The potential benefits of rebounding are impressive:

  • Works your leg, back, and core muscles

  • May improve bone density

  • Increases oxygen flow and boosts circulation

  • May improve motor skills and balance

  • Works your cardiovascular system

  • May improve coordination

  • Can be mixed with other exercises

  • Promotes tissue repair

  • May stimulate the lymphatic system

  • Increases muscle responsiveness

  • May increase endurance

  • May support pelvic floor health

  • Encourages collateral circulation

  • Burns calories

  • May stimulate metabolism

  • May promote cell growth and repair

  • Can increase breathing capacity

  • May stimulate cells in internal organs

  • May flush toxins, dead cells, bacteria, and other waste

Always check with your doctor being beginning a new exercise, especially if you’ve had surgeries or have other health concerns. Also be sure that the mini trampoline you use is on a stable surface, away from other objects, and in solid working order. We recommend choosing a trampoline with a handlebar for added stability.

Here are some tips to rebounding like a pro, in order from beginner to more advanced

  • Begin with a warmup

  • Basic jumps

  • Jog in place

  • Jog around on the trampoline

  • Jumping jacks

  • Interval training

  • Place a soft, squishy exercise ball between your knows, and slowly bounce while breathing into your pelvis

  • Incorporate light hand weights

  • Incorporate heavier hand weights

Rebounding is a great exercise to incorporate into your workout a few days a week. Start with a few minutes per workout and gradually work your way up. You can also do circuit training where you incorporate other workouts in-between rebounding.

This is an especially great workout to do when you’re stuck at home. Great for your fitness, but even more than that, great for your health!
