When most people hear rebounding, they think of basketball, or of getting over a breakup.

But what you should be thinking about is bouncing on a trampoline!

Rebounding is the technical term for exercising on a mini-trampoline and it’s quickly becoming popular for a lot of different reasons. Here are some good ones:

10 Reasons to Rebound Daily

1. It’s Super Fun

I know it might sound silly to put having fun at the top of the list, but the most important part of doing any kind of exercise is consistency. If you don’t do something regularly, you won’t get any of the benefits. And no one likes to do something that’s not fun day in and day out.

That’s why rebounding being fun is so important. When you were a kid you probably bounced on a trampoline for hours without even realizing you were getting exercise. Why not do the same thing as an adult?

2. It Can Help You Lose Weight

Rebounding is great because you can do it for a long without stressing out your metabolism. If you jog for hours a day you can actually slow your metabolism down. Bouncing on a trampoline, on the other hand, encourages your body to turn fat cells into energy, without stressing out your system. Who can be stressed when bouncing on a trampoline?

3. Improve Bone Density

NASA astronauts have actually used rebounding to help build back their bone density after being in space. The angular stress puts the right kind of stress on your bones to encourage them to grow stronger. For that reason, it’s also a great exercise for people with osteoporosis.

4. More Oxygen to Your Tissue

The NASA research also discovered that the levels of oxygen uptake by your body while rebounding are significantly higher than while running, 68% higher in one case.

5. Improve Balance

Needless to say, if you’re bouncing on a mini-trampoline, you need to keep your balance to not fall off. Having to keep your body in the center engages your core and your inner ear canal. Some boxers have even taken to using a rebounder to improve their agility and balance.

6. Less Stress On Joints

NASA has actually studied the G-force on astronauts while jogging and while rebounding. What they found is that running puts over twice as much pressure on your legs and ankles than on your back and head. While on a trampoline the G-force is equally distributed throughout the body. So to avoid knee, shin, and foot problems, rebounding is a good way to go.

7. Detox Your Lymphatic System

Rebounding helps to stimulate your lymphatic system and gets toxins flowing out of your system. The up and down motion is particularly helpful because it runs in the same direction, helping to move lymph through your system.

8. Exercise For Your Cells

You don’t necessarily think of your cells as needing exercise, but having healthy cells is important to having a healthy body. Rebounding is one of the only exercises that actually engages, strengthens, cleanses, and tones all of your cells.

9. Improve Your Digestion

You would think bouncing up and down might be hard on your stomach, but apparently the opposite is true. Rebounding can actually help move along your digestive system.

10. It’s Convenient

Just twenty minutes a day three times a week is enough to get most of the benefits. You don’t have to leave your house or look presentable, you can just start bouncing.

Happy rebounding!
