Do you exercise? Is exercise something that seems to be just outside your grasp all the time? Perhaps you look on exercise as too much hard work and better suited to other people.
Whether you like it or not, your physical body needs physical motion every single day and not just the getting up from the chair and sitting back down again type of exercise – though that too has its place. Research has shown that we need daily, weight bearing exercise or motion to maintain our physical body.
Exercise Does Not Have To Be Hard Work
In my view I think we have lost sight of why we need to exercise and how much we really need to be doing to keep us well. All this talk of fitness has put the focus on the exercise and not the person doing the exercise.
My Own Experience of Exercising
I have had an up and down experience of exercising. I have pulled muscles when I have over exercised and had lots of pain in my body when I didn’t exercise at all. I have been told to exercise to help me overcome pain in my body and then been told to not exercise to help me get rid of pain. Bottom line, you and I live in this physical body and it needs physical movement everyday to help it function at its best. Since I rebounded daily, my body feels and looks much better and I’m definitely healthier too.
How much physical activity do You need
This is the million dollar question. When working with clients I often muscle test to see what exercise is most optimal for the client. Many can be shocked to hear that their system only needs 20-40 minutes, when they are out doing a lot more or indeed doing a lot less.
With Rebounding – Just Exercising For 20 minutes Works
Rebounding has been proven by NASA Scientists to be 68% more effective than running on a treadmill. This means that when it comes to using the rebounder for exercising – less is more – 20 minutes daily rebounding is the same as a 60 minutes good brisk walk or jog. Rebounding can work for you even if you are only doing a gentle bounding motion on the rebounder.
I have women aged from 40 to over 70 emailing me to let me know how rebounding has brought a whole new lease of life to them. This only confirms what I know myself from my many years rebounding and working as a Kinesiologist.
Rebounding Exercises EVERY MUSCLE
Rebounding works every cell in your body. We have some 50 trillion of those. That also means that it works every muscle, organ, bone, well just about every single part of you.
Rebounding Helps Lymphatic Drainage
The bounding gets your lymphatic system going. This vitally important part of your immune system has no pump so it relies on exercise to get lymph circulating around the body. You have lots of lymph nodes throughout your body that help control the flow of the lymph fluid. By rebounding you are helping boost the clearing of toxins from your lymphatic system as well as getting nutrients pumped to where they need to go.
Rebounding Helps with Menopause symptoms
A Study published in The Korean Journal of Sport in 2019 highlighted how Rebounding improved the Bone Mineral Density for a group of women aged 45 and over. Did you know that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men are likely to experience a bone related issue over the age of 50?
In this study the bone mineral density of participants was measured before and after the programme of rebounding four/five days a week for around 6 months. All of the bones measured showed significant increases in mineral density as a result of following the rebounding programme.
Bone Mineral Density Wasn’t The Only Thing Rebounding Improved
But more than just their bone mineral density improved. Every women reported that their overall fitness was better. Each of the women had not been exercising regularly prior to the study. All participants also had lost weight, an improved Body Mass Index, better blood pressure, heart rate, and muscle mass. They felt more toned, and mentally fitter too.
These are all symptoms of the menopause. This study really highlights how rebounding works as an effective exercise for helping improve bone strength. Add to this the effects of rebounding on our lymphatic system which can also get lethargic during the menopause and you have such an important and effective exercise system.
Rebounding Can Help Strengthen Blood Vessels
Another symptom of the menopause can be weakening of the smaller and larger blood vessels due to the lowering essential fatty acids and other key nutrients in your body. Rebounding can be of help here too, because rebounding works every cell, including these vessels, helping them to maintain a strong structure.
In fact rebounding helps all our cells keep their vibrancy. All this and so much more from just 20 minutes on the rebounder.
The Slow and Steady Approach Works Best for Wellness After 40
But again, given all the weakening of your system during menopause or extreme stress, rebounding needs to be started slowly with a gradual but steady increase to your rebounding time and intensity. This is so you don’t over work our blood vessels, lymphatic system or any of the small and not so small muscles of our abdomen and lower back/upper legs.
Make Positive Thinking Part of your Rebound For Wellness Experience
Think positive thoughts while rebounding and you help your whole energy to become positive while rebounding. Be grateful for all your successes on the rebounder. I always use the ‘I truly …’ preface when creating positive affirmations. Like, ‘I truly am blessed’, or ‘I truly love myself’. Another one could be ‘I truly love my daily exercise regime’.
Rebounding Also Helps With Bladder Leakage
While I never really advertised how Rebounding helps to tighten bladder muscles and so can help women have less accidents, I am overwhelmed with the amount of women to go out of their way to share how they are now having no accidents, thanks to rebounding.
Rebound For Wellness Programmes Work For You
I have put together some Rebound For Wellness Programmes to help women get into rebounding for their wellness. These programmes take you from just 1 minute of daily rebounding to 20 minutes daily. It all starts with that one minute daily and building up weekly, gradually, and before you know it you are beginning to feel better, more positive, fitter, more able to keep your balance, the list of positives are endless.
The programmes are about helping you to get exercising and to keep exercising for the rest of your active life. So many women tell me that they were never able to exercise before they tried the Rebound For Wellness Programmes. Now they are exercising pretty much every single day.
Can All These Improvements Be Down To Just 20 minutes On The Rebounder?
Yes they can! When you feel better you can make better choices. Your brain is less stressed and your whole system is less stressed because all toxins and excess hormones – including stress hormones – are being cleared from your body using this very effective form of exercise. When you think better and feel better you are more able to make even more better choices.
