The Benefits of Rebounding for 5 minutes

What is rebounding ?….The typical rebound mini-trampoline is about 3′ in diameter and 9″ high. It is safe, easy to use, and effective. Research has led some scientists to conclude that jumping on a mini-trampoline is possibly the most effective exercise yet devised by man, especially because of the effect rebounding has on the lymph in the body.

Have you ever looked out the kitchen window and see the kids bouncing on the trampoline and think that looks fun… well it is it and it is so good for you. So next time take a few minutes and jump on the trampoline and feel the benefits in your body.

The human body needs to move. The lymph system bathes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. Contrary to blood which is pumped by the heart, the lymph is totally dependent on physical exercise to move. Without adequate movement, the cells are left stewing in their own waste products and starving for nutrients, a situation which contributes to arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases as well as ageing. Vigorous exercise such as rebounding is reported to increase lymph flow by 15 to 30 times.

All the Neuro-Lymphatic points stimulate by energy reflexes the flow of lymph to the related muscle and organ. There is twice as much lymph as blood in the body. It is a non-cellular fluid. It permeates the tissue where blood cells that are imprisoned in capillaries cannot go since there are too large. The lymph feeds and cleans the bodies tissues.

Lymph vessels can become clogged with protein deposits or the flow can stagnate or even stop for reasons such as fatigue, stress, infection, emotional shock, lack of physical activity or dehydration. Toxins accumulate, cells are unable to function properly resulting in various metabolic and infectious problems.

All cells in the body become stronger in response to the increased “G force” during rebounding. Vertical motion workouts such as rebounding are much different and much more beneficial and efficient than horizontal motion workouts, such as jogging or running.

When you bounce on a rebounder (mini-trampoline), several actions happen:

  • An acceleration action as you bounce upward
  • A split-second weightless pause at the top
  • A deceleration at an increased G-force

These immune cells are responsible for eating viruses, bacteria and even cancer cells, so it is good that they be active. Jumping on a mini-trampoline directly strengthens the immune system, so it’s a big deal!

Safety

Everyone should start with the gentle bounce let your feet remain with the mat while the body moves up and down. The health bounce is sufficient to obtain all the benefits of rebounding while gently strengthening the entire body. You can sit chat on the phone,  put in your earbuds and listen to music. It is recommended that you do your rebounding with bare feet so you do not slip. Do not wear tight or constricting clothes. The more jiggling, the more your lymph system is flushing out those toxins!

Start with 5 minutes of rebounding and increase their time as their fitness level improves. Seniors can start with 2 minutes several times per day, with at least 30 minutes between rebounding sessions. Increase your rebounding time gradually.

Inactive seniors find that gently jumping on a mini-trampoline gives them renewed vigor and zest for life. Hyperactive children are reported to calm down after a few days of rebounding.  Everyone  can do this and people can use the rebound mini-trampoline whenever they have a few minutes during the day.

Just some of the Benefits

  • Boosts lymphatic drainage and immune function
  • Great for skeletal system and increasing bone mass
  • Helps improve digestion
  • Rebounding helps circulate oxygen throughout the body to increase energy.
  • Rebounding in 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.
  • Rebounding is fun!

10 Days to Thrive – Exercise – Day Seven

Systematic Kinesiology 10 day challenge to thrive

 

Is it finally time to commit to a new daily workout routine? Are you tired of saying you’re going to exercise and get healthy and then not follow through with a plan?

 

If you have not worked out in a while, setting tough goals for your daily workout routine might make you start, you will only begin to  feel overwhelmed unmotivated. It’s important to start small.

Don’t say you’re going to run a marathon in 6 months,there’s nothing wrong with taking baby steps and accomplishing a few small goals before moving on to bigger goals.run-750466_1920

Some small things you can do to help motivate yourself are to focus on daily consistency instead of the amount of time you spend on working out. It’s more important to stay motivated than to focus on the length of time of your workout. Once your motivation is in place, then you can work on elongating your workout session.

So today take a walk even if it’s only 150 steps from your front door. Find out if any running groups are in your area or some classes you might like to join.

This affords a special mention.  When you rebound, you are flooding the cells with oxygen (thereby improving ATP production) while also strengthening the cells and protecting them against degenerative disease.  It stimulates the lymphatic drainage system to help the body get rid of toxins, waste, bacteria, viruses etc.

Our bodies are energetic and when we use the rebounder, we may assume it’s only to improve the lymphatic system, but I think it’s more than that – facia

Rebounding help improve posture, balance, muscle tone and will elevate your energy levels.  Because of the impact of gravity as you rise up, the body becomes weightless for an instant, and when you land the gravity pull is suddenly doubles and puts internal organise under pressure.  This helps squeeze out waste materials within the cells, and into the lymphatic system.

Our bodies thrive on movement – be that running, swimming, yoga, lifting weight, or simply walking.  Somewhere in your day is to introduce movement somehow.  Some exercises will ground you, some will get you in touch with your spiritual self.

So todays challenge we ask you to do a little exercise or plan your exercise for the week. Pop over to our facebook page and see how the everyone else is doing with the challenges
