What is Rebounding

ReboundingNo, I’m not talking about after a break-up! Rebounding is similar to jumping on a trampoline. In fact, most people use a miniature version of a trampoline, also called a rebounder for this simple, yet extremely beneficial exercise. Rebounding helps to stimulate lymphatic flow to eliminate toxins and germs from the body. The lymphatic system contains lymph, a fluid containing white blood cells that helps to destroy pathogens and carry them to the bloodstream for elimination. However, unlike the cardiovascular system which has a pump (your heart) the lymphatic system does not have one which can cause lymph glands to get backed-up and swell. Because rebounding helps to stimulate lymphatic flow, there are many benefits you can get from rebounding. Here are just a few:

Benefits of Rebounding
  • Boosts immune system by increasing white blood cell activity and improving detoxification
  • Strengthens cells by increasing oxygen, thereby improving health at a cellular level
  • Great low-impact exercise for people with skeletal or joint conditions to help avoid pain and injury
  • Improves coordination and balance
  • Can help strengthen the body and build muscle
  • Helps improve cardiovascular function by strengthening the heart
  • Assists weight loss by eliminating toxins and increasing calories burned

Here’s a great video to check out on rebounding from one of my fave health gurus, Chris Wark:

It is so simple and you can do it any time, anywhere by simply bouncing on your tip-toes if you don’t have access to a mini-trampoline. Have you tried rebounding? Do you enjoy it or while you give it a try if you haven’t already?
