With rebounding, all of that is taken out of the equation. It allows you to active muscle, drive in nutrients, and increase strength and stability while avoiding high-impact stress.
The older you are, the more I would recommend rebounding as part of a daily routine. As we age, we often become less structurally stable which leads to a whole host of other problems. Rebounding will ensure that your joints, muscles, and all connective tissues stay strong and pliable.
What if I told you NASA used rebounding as a way to rebuild bone density in astronauts returning from space? Well, believe it.
“Wolff’s Law” states that bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the loads under which it is placed. It’s the same reason resistance exercise is great for maintaining bone strength.
The compression forces you put your bones under during rebounding is unparalleled for creating and maintaining strong, healthy bones. This is extremely important for a number of reasons and is especially crucial as we age.
Perhaps the most immediate benefit you’ll see from using a rebounder is how great it is for releasing muscular tension and tightness.
Once again, it is the repetitive compression forces at work which will help allow your body to relieve tension and loosen up.
Contracting and relaxing your muscles in such a manner will help move energy through the body that might otherwise be stagnant. This is a great benefit for those who suffer from tight, achy muscles or tension headaches.
While I would encourage anyone to take up most any form of exercise, rebounding offers a few unique benefits all it’s own.
So do yourself a favor and give it a try. The risk is low, but the reward is guaranteed.
