Burning calories on a trampoline can help you feel good about your weight.
A trampoline or mini-trampoline, also known as a rebounder, is an excellent tool to use for weight loss if you are overweight or obese. It is a low-impact activity that burns calories, and it's pretty fun to use at the same time. Jumping on a trampoline relieves stress, is relatively easy to do, is inexpensive after the initial investment and can be done almost anywhere with the help of a mini-trampoline. It is important that you speak with a physician before beginning an exercise routine, but after that, you can start using a trampoline immediately after making sure it is approved for your weight. Weight restrictions or limitations can be found in the owner's manual or by calling the company who makes the trampoline you are using. Start by exercising on the trampoline every other day for 10 to 30 minutes, depending on your health and fitness level.
Get Warm on the Trampoline
Get on the trampoline and slowly begin to bounce up and down without removing your feet from the surface. Do this for 60 seconds or so, and then slowly start to punch the air with your fists and arms. This will get your arms moving and warmed up as well. Do this for an additional 30 seconds, or more if you desire a longer warm-up session. The goal is to slowly get your muscles moving so that you are capable of exerting yourself more without injuring yourself. Warm up before every exercise session on the trampoline.
Jump, Jump, Jump
This exercise involves basic jumping up and down on the trampoline. You are working to get vertical elevation, which burns calories for weight loss and helps to tone your muscles. During this exercise, you can attempt to jump up so that your feet leave the surface of the trampoline at the same time. Make sure that you are centered on the trampoline before you start, and jump up using a springing motion from your legs, which are bent to start and then straighten as you jump. Raise your hands above your head when you jump to make the exercise more intense. According to the Centers for Disease Control, adults need 150 to 300 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week, but this can be broken into segments ranging from 10 minutes to one hour per session. Begin with shorter workouts and gradually work your way towards doing a 30-minute to one-hour long session each time.
Trampoline Dancing is Fun
Add dance moves to your vertical jump, slowly at first, to create an intense exercise that is also a lot of fun. You can listen to your favorite music and enjoy dancing to it while you are getting a workout on the trampoline. Try adding a torso twist, leg kicks or arm movements to your jumps. These easy dance moves will help you burn more calories to lose weight faster. Take it easy at first so that you do not injure yourself while becoming accustomed to the trampoline. Do this for two to five minutes, and then return to jumping normally.
Jog and Jump
Begin jogging in place on the trampoline, going at a pace that feels comfortable to you. Your breathing should become heavier during the session, but you should not be gasping for air or be in physical pain at any time. While you are jogging in place, you should try to lift your knees as high as you can. Stay in the center of the trampoline during this exercise. Do this for two to five minutes, and then return to jumping normally. Cool down for five minutes at the end of the routine in the same way that you warmed up.
