Trampolines are not just for children. Their repetitive bouncing motion has lots of benefits that make them suitable for individuals of all ages. For an individual to get the most out of a square trampoline or a circular one he has to select and use one that is most appropriate for his needs and living situation, whereby he’ll need to consider the trampolines health benefits, his budget, objectives as well as space to find the right one. That said here are some of the health benefits of a trampoline.
The lowering of impact of cardiovascular fitness
When he jumps on a trampoline, the flexible surface will move with him as he lands lessening the landing impact. This is contrary to other cardiovascular fitness forms like jogging where the effect of coming into contact with the ground may lead to the joint and bone injuries of the knees, hips, and ankles. A trampoline will be less likely to cause these impact type based injuries. Still, the jumping motion will enable him to increase his breath rate and heart rate leading to the improvement of his cardiovascular fitness.
The improvement of lymphatic function
This is also one of the health benefits of a trampoline for it can provide to the lymphatic system. This system has a vital role to play in body immunity for it can bath cells in lymph fluid throughout the body or collect cellular waste and carry it towards a suitable system for waste removal whether it is liver, skin, kidneys or lungs. This system does require muscle contraction for waste movement away from the extremities and up the system. Any exercise will assist in generating this movement. However, the most efficient one will be the up and down bouncing off a trampoline. This is because it is relatively easier to perform and can stimulate the one-way valve of the lymph system to open and close concurrently leading to substantial increase in the lymph flow as it works in opposition to gravity by moving up the lymphatic system.
The improvement of balance and coordination
Based on the force and angle with which he’ll hit the trampoline’s surface his body will be rebound up in the air at a distinct angle. Sometimes he may end up bouncing unexpectedly because of landing with greater force than anticipated. Other times he might fall before the surface of a trampoline has settled, to accommodate these unanticipated trampoline’s movements, his body must find its gravity center and try to re-balance before it lands again.
For an individual looking for practical and a fun way of fitting exercise into his life, trampoline might just be it. If he doesn’t have enough budget to buy one, then he should check out in his local gym to see if they conduct trampoline classes.
