"Rebounding is the most effective and efficient form of exercise ever devised by man." A. Carter summarized a NASA study in 1979, which NASA published in the Journal of Applied Physiology in 1980.
Using a mini trampoline (rebounding) can provide a variety of health benefits to the body. Rebounding is an easy activity that almost anyone can do and can provide a way to improve health and fitness levels.
This passage is going to talk about the followings of mini trampoline:
(1) Have you heard of trampolines?
(2) Benefits of playing mini trampolines
(3) Just having fun!
A trampoline is made up of a piece of tensioning device, strong fabric stretched between the steel frame using many coil springs. Not all trampolines have springs; some use fiberglass-reinforced plastic rods. People bounce on the trampoline for recreational and competitive purposes.
The fabric on which users bounce (often called a "bounce pad" or "trampoline") is not inherently elastic. The elasticity is provided by a spring that is attached to the frame and stores potential energy.
The trampoline originated in medieval France. Initially, the French acrobat Du Tamborine did various bounces in the safety net hanging in the air and used it to perform, and trampoline thus began.
In 1930, trampoline was introduced to the United States by American George Nissan, and from the entertainment value and sports characteristics of trampoline, trampoline was researched and improved to make it safer and easier to bounce. After that, he set up his own trampoline company and mass-produced the modified trampoline. When this new trampoline appeared, it was first used by the U.S. Air Force as military training equipment, and then soon used by space research institutions to train pilots and astronauts. Medical units soon used this equipment for the treatment and rehabilitation of people with disabilities. Soon, trampoline with its unique fun and fitness characteristics and received the love of young people.
The things you loved to do as a kid - running around instead of sitting still - have proven to be good for you as an adult. Now, jumping on a trampoline has joined the bandwagon.
A new study from the American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that bouncing on a mini-trampoline for less than 20 minutes is just as good for you as running, but feels better and is a lot more fun.
Researchers gave a group of 24 fit college students a mini-trampoline and showed a 19-minute video of the trampoline exercise. They measured the heart rate and oxygen consumption of the jumpers every minute.
Trampoline exercise was found to be moderate to vigorous exercise: about as physically effective as running 6 miles per hour, riding a bike or playing soccer, basketball or ultimate Frisbee. However, when people were asked to rate how hard they exerted themselves, they gave scores more in line with light to moderate intensity - suggesting that exercise feels easier than it should.
That's one of the benefits of bouncing on a trampoline, in addition to conditioning your calf and leg muscles." One of the drawbacks of running is that it can lead to orthopedic injuries," said study author John Pocari, a professor of exercise and sports science at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. But even though the jumps are similar, the trampoline absorbs some of the impact, resulting in less impact on the feet and lower extremities, he says." It absorbs the impact instead of you pounding on the sidewalk, which makes it look easier than it is."
Obviously, it's also fun - which is no small factor when it comes to getting people to exercise. When you're following a video or doing something fun, the enjoyment factor overrides the fact that you're working out hard and you're just focused on having fun.
