What Is the Health Benefit of Rebounding?

You may consider changing the way you exercise after knowing the amazing benefit of rebounding. Bouncing on a mini-trampoline may not be your idea of a strenuous aerobic exercise and it may not strike you as having significant health benefits, but, in fact, both are the case.

Rebounding offers an home exercise trampoline that can be adjusted to your fitness level, is easy on your joints and back, burns more calories than running, and it can be done in the convenience of your own home.

Immune System and the Benefit of Rebounding

One special benefit of rebounding is its ability to improve flow in the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a major component of the immune system and which one of the functions is to remove excess fluids from body tissues. The lymph system consists of lymph nodes that detect foreign and potentially harmful substances in the lymph fluid. Lymph nodes are part of the lymphatic system that work like spongy filter bags.

Stagnant or inadequate lymph flow is associated with the onset of many symptoms and illnesses. Unlike the circulatory system with the heart as its pump, the lymph system lacks a pump to move the fluid. It is vital that the lymph fluids continue to flow in order to eliminate waste from the body. The flow is dependent on muscle contractions and body movements. One of the best ways to stimulate this flow is by rebounding. The lymph ducts expand during rebounding and the increased lymph flow flushes more toxins through the lymphatic system.

Heart and Lung Benefit of Rebounding

Regular exercise helps prevent clogging of the arteries and lessening of cardiac performance. Exercises like rebounding that work the leg muscles help keep the blood moving. The contractions of these muscles (the calf muscles in particular) during exercise act like pumps to circulate the blood back up to the heart for fresh oxygen.

Aerobic exercises such as rebounding increase red blood cell count, allowing faster oxygen transport through the body, and can help lower elevated blood pressure. Aerobic exercise helps dissolve blood clots and increases the amount of high-density lipoproteins (HDL, the so-called "good" cholesterol and a major factor in the prevention of atherosclerosis) in the blood.

The capacity of the lungs also increases, enabling them to process more air and replenish oxygen in the cells of the body's tissues and organs more quickly. Metabolism (conversion of food into energy) is enhanced and you tend to absorb nutrients from your food more efficiently.

Other Rebounding Benefits

Besides increasing circulation and respiration, rebounding also helps fight fatigue, improves coordination and digestion, aids in muscle tone and endurance, and brings on better sleep.

To enjoy the benefit of rebounding even more, make sure you are also taking care of your other health needs. Proper nutrition, rest, drinking plenty of water, is just as important as regular exercise.
