“Rebounding Exercises For Health”
My health tip for the day is: “If you’re looking for an indoor exercise, try rebounding.”
What exercises can you do on a rainy day? Some people like to go jog in the rain, the mud and the cold. They are the brave ones. Good for them.
I like to watch them from my window.
But seriously, that’s not my style.
What do I do instead? I found a great workout I can do inside on a rainy do (or when it’s too cold to go outside).
It’s rebounding, a way to exercise that is complete and has several health benefits.
I won’t talk about the so-called benefits of “cellular exercise.” Because of the up-and-down movement of rebounding, apparently the lymph gets moving and this helps to detoxify and slow-down aging.
For me, the real benefits of rebounding is that it’s something you can do inside on a rainy day. Plus, it can be a great cardio-endurance-toning workout if you know what to do with the rebounder.
So two tips for rebounding:
1. Get a good rebounder. Not those cheap ones at Walmart. Get something that will last and will give you a real bound. My rebounder is a NEEDAK that I got on E-bay.
2. Get a DVD workout for rebounder. Most people have no idea what to do with their rebounder. I had one for years and the only thing I was doing with it was to jump up and down once in a while, and it got boring. Since then, I got a great DVD which as several workouts, one which is 45 minute long and is great for many aspects of fitness. You can get it from www.urbanrebounding.com, a company that also sells rebounders. I haven’t tried them but they look great and for a great price too.
NOTE: If you’re not in the habit of exercising regularly, you might want to start with that first! Don’t think that a rebounder is going to be the magic solution that will get you in shape. You have to get in the habit first.
