In this blog post, I’m going to share how exercising on a rebounder helps with weight loss. Did you know making gentle bounces on a rebounder where your feet may not completely leave the rebounder can bring health and weight loss benefit? Sounds crazy right? You may even be laughing, but here’s the fact one cannot make fun of.
According to NASA’s research, rebounding offers an increased gravitational load or G-force that benefits our body by strengthening our musculoskeletal system. Aside from improving the muscle-to-fat ratio, it gradually improves the resting metabolic rate of the person which results in more calories being burned for hours after a rebounding exercise. Rebounding is also considered by many health practitioners as the most effective movement therapy to increase lymph flow and release toxins from the body.
Rebounding Boosts the Lymphatic System so it’s Ready to Stand Guard
You may be wondering how does rebounding work? There are several types of exercise that target certain muscles of the body or increase the cardiovascular function. Rebounding is a low impact exercise that utilizes the forces of acceleration and deceleration that work on each cell in the human body. Several actions take place when bouncing on a rebounder or mini-trampoline like this one mentioned in the video.
The up and down motion as you bounce on a rebounder lets your cells respond to the gravity-based exercise which is highly beneficial for your lymphatic system. Our lymph system is responsible for transporting immune cells and supports our immune function. As you practice the art of rebounding you are already helping your body and overall health by detoxifying and boosting your immune system function.
Rebounding Exercise for Weight Loss
Rebounding is not only convenient and enjoyable but it can also be an activity that can help you lose weight. The amount of weight and how quickly you lose from a rebounding exercise is influenced by several factors such as the intensity and quantity of your rebounding. The longer period of time and the more frequent of each rebounding workout, the more you can lose weight. More so, rebounding with more intensity will give you a good chance to lose weight more quickly.

The Art of Rebounding
Rebounding looks fun, convenient, and easy however there’s certainly much more to bouncing on a rebounder than meets the eye. Let’s get started with your rebounding workout. It begins with a warm-up by performing a basic bounce. This will help you tone your glutes, calf muscles, and quads so you’ll be prepared to perform a whole-body exercise. Stand on the rebounder with your feet apart. Relax the arms but with a slight bend of the elbow then bounce up and down lightly. Make sure to keep your knees slightly bend and your feet must also come just a few inches off the rebounder.
You can repeat this exercise up to thirty times. You can do a few main sets of rebounding such as jumping jacks, planks, push up advance move, and trampoline squats. People can challenge themselves using a variety of movements and jumping as high as they can to yield greater results while still being unreservedly safe.
