Losing weight can be difficult. According to fitness experts, the more physical activity you perform the better. Getting 30 minutes of moderate exercise each day is good enough to shed some pounds. But some vigorous activities can put a strain on your joints or bones causing more problems to your health. Fortunately, rebounding exercise can be an ideal aid to achieve your weight loss goals.
Is this a good exercise option for patients with weak joints or knee problems?
Because rebounding is a low-impact exercise, this is an ideal option for you to lose weight as it does not hurt your back, knees or joints. Essentially, it is a better option than jogging or running. But you have to pick a high-quality rebounder so you can maximize the benefits of this exercise.
How can rebounding help you lose weight?
According to a study conducted by NASA that was published on the Journal of Applied Physiology, jumping on a trampoline or rebounding has greater biomechanical stimuli than with running. This would mean that rebounding encourages burning more calories and exerting more energy. In fact, the study showed that burning of calories with this exercise is more efficient than running on a treadmill.
In another study conducted, it was found out a person weighing 145 pounds can burn 79 calories in less than 15 minutes of jogging on a trampoline. If you do it for an hour, you can already burn more than 150 calories just by bouncing on a trampoline.
