While watching YouTube videos on various topics, I came across a video entitled, Exercise with a Difference. The presenter, Barbara O’Neill, can explain biochemistry, nutrition, and exercise ideas in a way that makes them understandable to the common person.
At the 34:50 mark of this video (the whole thing is worth your time), she raised the topic of rebounding as a great form of exercise. A rebounder is a mini-trampoline. She explains how this single exercise can provide a way to improve balance, help the lymph system, and increase bone health.
Her coverage of this issue fascinated me. It prompted me to order a rebounder and I just received it yesterday. I think this exercise will help me a lot. As I age (I’m 65 now), I know that maintaining my ability to balance is crucial for safety. Falls are one of the leading causes of degraded health in the elderly.
Here are a few pictures of my new rebounder.
To date, my main exercise has been walking. With adding the rebounder, I hope to do some high intensity interval training and also improve my balance. We’ll see.
Anyone else use a rebounder?
