The Benefits of Trampolining

Trampoline workouts are vigorous aerobic workouts that help to increase blood flow in your body, increasing the flow of oxygen around your body. It also strengthens the muscles in your cardiovascular system and boosts your oxygen levels, which helps you feel more alert.

Types of trampolines

There are two different types of trampolines: the indoor trampoline and the outdoor trampoline. The indoor trampolines are usually more stable and secure, while the outdoor ones have a higher weight capacity and give you more space to jump around. For adults exercising on an indoor mini-trampoline is safe and beneficial to your health; the smaller versions are called rebounders and are specifically designed for individual workouts.

Mini-trampoline exercises

See exercises that you can do on the mini-trampoline:

  1. Jumping jacks: When doing jumping jacks, you stand with your feet together and your arms alongside your body, then you move by lifting your arms overhead, and as you jump, you make sure your feet move apart, and when coming back down, they come together. You continue this for about 1 to 3 minutes, depending on your preference.
  2. Pelvic floor jumps: This exercise is targeted at the pelvic and thigh muscles to make them stronger. When doing this, make sure that you place a small exercise ball between your knees and jump up and down slowly while you focus on engaging the muscles in your pelvic region; you squeeze the ball by engaging the inner thighs; this can also be done for about 1 to 3 minutes depending on the individual’s preference.

Large trampoline exercises

We now move to discuss exercises that require large trampolines; they are as follows.

  1. Tuck jumps: Just like the name states, it means a tuck, so when you jump up, you tuck your knees into your chest, and upon landing, you do a recovery jump. So once you get that in place, you do a tuck on every jump for about 2 to 4 minutes.
  2. Squat jumps: When doing squat jumps exercises, you stand with your feet under your hips and arms alongside your body, jump up and spread your feet wider than your hips, and land in a squat position; you bend your knees, so your thighs are parallel to the floor and extend your arms straight out in front of you then complete by standing up straight and returning to the starting position. You do about 1 to 3 sets of 8 to 12 repetitions.

Benefits of exercising on a trampoline

According to Lori Lyons, there are some certain health benefits that you can gain from trampoline workouts. Some of these benefits are;

  1. Builds strength: Unlike some targeted training exercises, jumping requires multiple muscles. Lyons explains that “When you jump, you use the entire momentum of your body which forces all of your different muscles to work simultaneously.”
  2. Improves your bone density: A study found out that people who use trampolines a lot have a higher bone density at the hip and the spine than others. The data suggest that regular trampolining can help strengthen your bones which lessens your chances of osteoporosis — a health condition that weakens bones.
