REBOUNDING is a unique form of exercise that that provides many health and weight benefits for truckers. Rebounding is bouncing on a mini trampoline. However, there is a major difference between Trampolining and Rebounding. Trampolining is a sport which combines aerial somersaulting, twisting and various body landings, to provide an almost endless list of possibilities of skills, restricted only by ones skills and imagination. The goal of Rebounding isn’t to bounce high or perform gymnastic movements, but rather to perform a series of small, controlled movements.
Rebounding utilizes a deep bounce and small, methodical movements plus resistance which allow for a fitness workout superior to any other. Your body actually alternates between gravity and weightlessness. Rebounders are also referred to as mini trampolines. A major difference is that rebounders are small and designed to be used by one person at a time. Also, they can be used indoors or outdoors. Trampolines are large and often set up outdoors for the use of several people at a time. A Rebounders mat is much tighter than a trampoline. The strings are tighter so you will get more downward movement in the bounce instead of upward movement. Bouncing on a Rebounder exercises all 638 muscles of your body. The transition between gravity and weightlessness slowly release tension
in each muscle.
Rebounding is different from other exercises because it is a cellular exercise as opposed to a muscular exercise. Rebounding subjects your body to strong gravitational forces (G-forces) that strengthen every cell in your body and consequently increase your white blood cell count.
Rebounding provides a full body workout with minimal cost, space and time. It can be as simple as walking or as vigorous as a fast paced aerobic, high energy workout. Regular rebounding can reduce your body fat, firm your arms, strengthen your bones and muscles. Additionally, Rebounding can increase your energy thereby revitalizing your entire body when you’re tired. Rebounding is a perfect exercise for truckers. A rebounder can be folded in half or quarters and is an excellent choice of portable exercise equipment which can be easily stored in the truck and taken out for rebound exercise. Drivers who are short on time can get a very efficient workout in a very short amount of time. Rebounding for ten minutes is equivalent to 30 minutes of jogging. Rebounding for twenty minutes is equivalent to one hour of jogging.
Albert E. Carter, often referred to as the worlds foremost authority of rebound exercise states:
“Rebound exercise is the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man.”
Rebounding is Opposing gravity plus acceleration and deceleration so at the bottom of the bounce you have three forces that come together. The cells of the body have to adjust to that increased gravity pull so they will automatically become stronger. Working out on a Rebounder is 68% more efficient than jogging, and 7/8% of the impact is absorbed by the mat. According to NASA Rebounding is better than running, walking, or exercising with a treadmill. In fact NASA has been using Rebounding to train their own astronauts for over twenty years. Rebounding provides numerous health benefits.

Rebounding provides the very best Cardio-vascular conditioning. Rebounding allows for a large variety of exercise routines for all levels of fitness. Rebounding is fun, easy and efficient. Rebounding with weighted gloves or small weighted balls is an absolute phenomenal Integrated Full Body Toning Strength Training Activity.
Rebounding is a Total Cellular Exercise which means that each cell in your body is positively affected from the moment you begin your bounce or jump. It reduces your body fat, firms your arms, legs, thighs, abdomen and hips. It also strengthens all of your bones and muscles.
It is best to start Rebounding with a “health bounce” for five minutes then increase the duration. This is when you bounce but your feet never leave the mat.The health bounce is not to lose weight, rather it is strictly a cellular exercise. Get used to this pace and then after a few days or so you can do aerobic exercises which consist of simulated walking, jogging, running and even dancing on the Rebounder which are great weight loss exercises.
Rebounders are excellent to help children to stay fit while also enabling them to have fun. Rebounders are particularly excellent for children as they love to jump up and down. Children instinctively bounce on beds, sofas, chairs and other sources they consider to be suitable. They consider this playing as opposed to exercise. It is fun for them as opposed to a wearisome task. Consider making a rebounding a regular part of an exercise program for the entire family so that everyone can be healthy and fit.
There are plenty of cheap Rebounders on the market. It is important to invest in a good quality rebounder so do your research before purchasing. Take the time to compare reviews of rebounders posted by purchasers. Also, compare features, prices and warranties. A quality rebounder will provide multiple benefits to you and your family for years to come.
