Trampoline exercises which imbue the action of bouncing up and down against gravity have tremendous effect on the lymph in my body.
Have you ever thought of doing these exercises?
No? I'm not surprised.
Because you think they are for kids, especially hyperactive kids, right?
Hey! You're missing out a lot of fun!
Trampoline exercises, according to exercise experts, are possibly the most effective exercises devised.
The action of bouncing up and down has tremendous effect on the lymph in our body.
Talking about lymph, do you know that our lymph system covers every cell, carries nutrients to our cells and disposes of wastes from them?
And lymph depends on us doing physical activities so that it can move or flow?
Just imagine, if I don't move or exercise, my cells would be left stewing in their own wastes and starving for nutrients, a very unhealthy condition which may lead to cancer, arthritis, aging and other degenerative diseases.
Trampoline exercises are said to be excellent physical exercises that will help to increase our lymph flow by 15 to 30 times.
The bouncing motion effectively moves and recycles the lymph and our entire blood supply through our body many times during the course of the exercise.
So there, our lymph moves efficiently so that nutrients are carried to the cells and wastes are transported out from them!
And trampoline jumping, along with toning exercise are excellent stress reducers.
They can put the bouncing person into a trance-like state and provide wonderful relaxation.
They also stabilize our nervous system during the exercise session, and continue to help us maintain a relaxed disposition even after we've finished exercising.
The result is an increased resistance to environmental, physical and emotional stresses.
Plus, jumping on a trampoline is fun.....and brings lots of benefits.
It's also one of the most convenient exercises around - you can jump on the trampoline in the bedroom, kitchen, office, garden, backyard.....
Because it's so convenient, I jump on my trampoline several times a day while watching television or listening to music.
If you do the trampoline exercise regularly, it benefits you in many ways:
It's easy to do trampoline exercise.
I do it with no specific instructions or courses. And most trampolines come with sets of guidelines aided by exercise videos.
You can use them to help you out.
Try with small steps and bounces first. Once you get the grips, you can then bounce higher.... and higher......
Do your jumping on the trampoline with bare feet so you don't slip.
Start off with the gentle " bounce" - meaning your feet remain in contact with the mat while you bounce up and down.
This gentle bounce is enough for you to get all the benefits of jumping on the trampoline. It can be done while you're listening to music, watching TV or talking on the phone.
Begin with 5 minutes of jumping, increase your time as your fitness level improves.
For older exercisers, start with 2 minutes several times per day, with at least 30 minutes between jumping sessions.
It's necessary for you to start gradually in order to give time for your connective tissue holding the internal organs in place to strengthen.
This prevents the possibility of "prolapsed organs" - the only contra indication to trampoline exercises reported.
You feel good right after the exercises?
Great, carry on and you'll greatly benefit from them.
