Fitness Mantra: Trampoline workouts develop core and muscular strength
Today, we are witnessing an array of contemporary healthy fitness activities that make our fitness goals more fun and less tedious to cope up with. A lot of fitness enthusiasts are moving towards power yoga, calisthenics, cross-fit sessions, Zumba classes and Pilates, etc. to achieve their fitness goals.
We come across many such ways to keep up with our fitness goals that make it best to keep changing your workout routine until you find the best for your body. Another recent addition people are switching on to achieve their fitness goals is the fun yet high adrenaline-driven bouncing workout with trampolines. A study carried out by NASA found that 10 minutes on a trampoline is equivalent to 30 minutes of running which makes it a better cardiovascular workout. Trampolining is not only your usual ‘calorie-burning’ routine but offers a variety of benefits through rebound exercises such as cardiovascular fitness, coordination and agility, muscle toning and stress relief. The trampoline workout is a unique blend of fun and freestyle that helps develop core strength, muscular strength, and tones the body.
It’s a really good cardio workout
One of the unique benefits of trampoline training is its intense and energetic cardio workout that increases your heart rate pumping the blood to flow all around your body. It stimulates the flow thereby ridding the body of any toxins or waste and builds a healthy cardiovascular system.
Improves coordination andagility especially for toddlers
Bouncing on a trampoline helps you learn to control the coordination of your arms and legs and adjust the position of your body accordingly. As it increases awareness of your body and a sense of balance, these improved motor skills can, therefore, assist in various sports that require a lot of hand-eye and general co-ordination. Therefore, bouncing is not only popular with adults but is also beneficial for kids as it helps with their motor skill development, improves balance and enhances their posture.
It’s a low impact exercise
Although trampolining provides an intense workout for the muscles and bones, the mat or pad absorbs 80 per cent of the shock from the rebound. Reducing the risk of injury to your joints, especially in your ankles and knees, this workout is beneficial for people with less mobility or people undergoing rehabilitation.
It tones up those muscles
Muscle tone and suppleness are improved and your body fat percentage is reduced by trampolining. Regular use of a trampoline can also help improve posture and general muscle health.
It leads to improved overall health
Bouncing on a trampoline regularly can help increase your body’s metabolic rate and its ability to burn calories more efficiently. As a result of the increased G-force felt when exercising on a trampoline, your cells become stronger and this sort of exercise helps boost the activity of immune cells keeping the body’s natural defenses high and reducing the chance of getting sick.
Bounce your way to a stronger bone system
Trampolining is one of the best ways to avoid the risk of developing any bone conditions like osteoporosis, brittle bone diseases or fractures and increases the density. The bone mineral condition is improved due to the repetitive jumping that puts a small amount of stress on your bones and joints as the trampoline pad absorbs the majority of the impact. Your bones and joints are, therefore, protected when you exercise.
Learn new skills
While trampolining is a fun way to exercise, it is also one of the best ways to impress your family and friends with various moves and techniques. While many of us can master the basic jumps, with the help of qualified trampolining instructors, you can learn several cool tricks and aerial manoeuvres that will make you a pro in no time.
Bringing out the camaraderie
Trampoline parks are one of the best ways to strike up a friendship and be a part of a team. Especially when you have activities like basketball and dodgeball on a trampoline, it becomes an amazing team bonding session strengthening that camaraderie. This is also essential for many corporates who would like to go for a team bonding session or other corporate events.
