Rebounding: A Family Affair
One of the first things I do each morning is rebound on our mini trampoline for a few minutes to get my lymphatic system revved up and to help the flow of oxygen throughout my body. It's become a family affair;)
You should give rebounding a go to experience the following benefits (source: wellnessmama.com): •Boosts lymphatic drainage and immune function •Great for skeletal system and increasing bone mass •Helps improve digestion •More than twice as effective as running without the extra stress on the ankles and knees •Increases endurance on a cellular level by stimulating mitochondrial production (these are responsible for cell energy) •Helps improve balance by stimulating the vestibule in the middle ear •Helps improve the effects of other exercise- one study found that those who rebounded for 30 seconds between weight lifting sets saw 25% more improvement after 12 weeks than those who did not. •Rebounding helps circulate oxygen throughout the body to increase energy. •Rebounding is a whole body exercise that improves muscle tone throughout the body. •Some sources claim that the unique motion of rebounding can also help support the thyroid and adrenals.
