Bottom line, if you are over 40 you need Effective Exercise for menopause support. Spring is a great time to begin your new wellness regime.
Whether you are peri-menopausal, menopausal or post-menopausal, you need to be exercising – now, more than ever. As a Kinesiologist I attend a lot of trainings on natural energy healing for wellness.
After these events I always feel this urgency to tell women about the need for finding natural supports to help with the journey before, during and after the menopause, because synthetic medications and nutrition have so many side effects.
Key Menopause Supports
A healthy diet that is low on certain oils/fats and sugar is key. Water drinking is another important aspect of wellness over 45. Stress management is vital in helping you cope at this time. But one of the most important things you need to be getting every day, is weight bearing motion (exercise).
Rebounding Is My Go To Menopause Exercise
The form of exercise that I find to be most effective is rebounding. You possibly have read previous posts about rebounding and even watched some of my rebounding videos over on my Facebook Page or Youtube Channel.
Why Do I Find Rebounding So Effective
I going to write a book about all the great benefits of rebounding, even with just 15 – 20 minutes – every day.
One of the most insightful pieces of research on rebounding came from NASA. They found that Rebounding is 68% more effective than jogging on a treadmill. In 1979 NASA was trying to prevent muscle wastage in astronauts while in space. They discovered that Rebounding was the best form of exercise for providing the most benefits.
Rebounding for 20 minutes is like being out pounding the roads for 60 minutes and I don’t generally tend to break a sweat when I am rebounding. Well, it depends what I am doing on the rebounder and if the heat is on in the house.
Some days I do go for a jog on my rebounder. Other days it is just a 10-15 minute walk. It depends on my mood, the time I have and how my body is feeling. I have grown to listen to my body and when I begin to feel it fatigue I will stop rebounding.
I want my exercise to be easy and enjoyable and that is what rebounding gives me, along with the huge amount of benefits. You see, I have discovered that less time on the rebounder will bring you more benefits than your hour running or walking.
The Benefits of Rebounding
Rebounding works every single cell in your body. As you journey through the menopause and beyond, your cells soften due to the declining oestrogen levels, leading to sagging skin and even muscle wastage.
Some women take to weights and aggressive workouts in gyms when the hit the menopause. But what if I were to tell you that these programmes could be putting your already overstressed body under even more stress and you actually don’t need to do that.
With gentle rebounding, because every cell is getting that gentle level of positive stress, you will notice that your skin starts to tighten up that little bit. Your muscles start to tone, your balance gets better, your energy grows and you begin to feel really well in yourself. This isn’t just what I have experienced. Many women who use the Rebound For Wellness Programmes all notice great results. You can check out some testimonials here.
Why Exercise Through Menopause And Beyond
You have this physical body that needs to work at its best every second of everyday. Think of a car, as it works toxic fumes get emitted. Well it is the same with your body. Toxins are a consequence of your body doing its natural and normal jobs, never mind all the exposure to the unnatural toxins! All the toxins need to be pushed through and out of your body.
You have this great lymphatic system as well as many organs that help to clear away toxins from the body. The lymphatic system needs exercise for it to work properly. Without exercise toxins end up staying in your body and causing all sorts of problems. All those stress hormones, lactic acid and many other toxins need to be pushed out of the body.
Not Forgetting Bone Mineral Density!
It is estimated that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over the age of 50 has a bone mineral related issue. This can be prevented or the damage reduced with good diet, healthy nutrition and effective exercise.
Bones suffer when your body is lacking certain nutrients. Menopause, stress levels, lack of exercise, too much sugar will all help to lower your natural nutritional levels. Post Menopause you also need to be making sure you have the right nutritional support.
The key is to feed yourself good nutrition and have an effective exercise system in your 40’s. Lowering stress levels is also very important. Because stress drains your body of nutrition.
Walking can help, so too can jogging, swimming, dancing, cycling, yoga and tai chi, but none of these forms of exercising do as much as 15-20 minutes on a rebounder.
Even gentle rebounding pumps that lymphatic system. Rebounding clears the lactic acid that forms when exercising so there is very little recovery time needed after you exercise.
Begin To Rebound For Just 1 Minute
It is always best to begin rebounding with just 1 minute a day. Even how you begin on the rebounder is important. By starting your rebounding really slowly and building up your rebounding time – minute by minute, you won’t need to worry about any recovery time.
You will have pretty much no level of injury and you won’t over tax your mind, body or soul. In fact all of a sudden you will be at 15-20 minutes and feeling much better and you will wonder how you got there. I have all this clearly laid out for you in my Rebound For Wellness Programme.
