What is a Rebounder and How it can Help You?

What is a Rebounder and How it can Help You?

Rebounding is a type of aerobic exercise that is performed while jumping on a mini-trampoline. Jumps can be fast or slow, and can be mixed with rest or aerobic stepping. It’s generally appropriate for people of all ages, from children to older adults.

Rebounding can help work the muscles in the legs, increase your endurance, and strengthen your bones, among a number of other benefits. This type of exercise is gentle on the joints but allows you to work your cardiovascular and lymphatic system without taxing the body.

Using a rebounder is a great way to get a low-impact cardiovascular workout that is easy on the joints. According to a study published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine, rebounder exercises can provide a moderate to high intensity cardiovascular workout that can help to improve cardiovascular endurance. Another study published in the Journal of Aging and Physical Activity found that rebounding can be an effective way to improve cardiovascular health in older adults.

Not only is rebounding good for the heart, it can also help to improve muscle strength and tone. A study published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine found that rebounder exercises can provide a full-body workout, engaging muscles in the legs, arms, and core. Another study published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine found that rebounder exercises can help to improve muscle strength and endurance in young adults.

In addition to physical benefits, using a rebounder can also offer mental benefits. According to a study published in the Journal of Aging and Physical Activity, rebounding can be a fun and enjoyable form of exercise that can help to reduce stress and improve overall mood. The rhythmic and repetitive nature of rebounder exercises can also have a calming effect on the mind, making it a great form of exercise for those looking to improve their mental wellbeing.

Benefits of Rebounding:

  • Strengthens muscles: works the abdominal (core), leg, buttock, and deep back muscles.
  • Improves coordination and transmission of nerve impulses between brain and muscles, promoting better balance, coordination, and overall motor skills.
  • Slows down atrophy in the aging process.
  • Supports bone density, bone strength, and bone formation, while decreasing bone resorption, so it may be a good option if you have osteoporosis. Bouncing puts small amounts of pressure on the bones, which helps them grow stronger.
  • May help improve endurance.
  • Promotes weight loss.
  • Enhances digestion and elimination
  • Curtails fatigue and menstrual pain in women.
  • Provides stress relief.
  • Aids in lymphatic drainage and detox by stimulating the lymphatic system. Rebounding may help your body flush out toxins, bacteria, dead cells, and other waste products. 
  • May support pelvic floor health, according to anecdotal reports. Bouncing works the muscles of the deep core that help prevent urinary incontinence and stabilize hip joints.

How does Rebounding help Detox?

Jumping on a rebounder is often listed as one of the most effective exercises for detoxification because it actually promotes detoxification of the lymphatic system.

The lymph nodes help to pump fluid and toxins in and out of the body. But when the body is weakened from toxins or stress, many toxins enter the lymph nodes and never get pumped back out. So when you are rebounding you are helping your body by “manually” pumping the toxins out with each bouncing movement.

The rebounder also helps to bring additional oxygen to the skin, and improve circulation.

In terms of calorie burn, it's been reported that a 150-pound person could burn 410 calories an hour while rebounding, and only 355 while running.

In conclusion, the regular use of a rebounder can provide a wide range of physical and mental benefits. It is a low-impact, full-body exercise that is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, and it can help to improve cardiovascular health, muscle strength and tone, and mental wellbeing. So, it is a good idea to include rebounder exercises in your regular fitness routine. Overall, the scientific studies show that rebounder exercises can be an effective and enjoyable way to improve physical and mental health.
