Yesterday, I rebounded for one minute on a mini trampoline I had purchased years ago and never used.
today, I rebounded for two minutes making very conservative jumps. …barely letting my feet leave the surface of the rebounder.
___ … waited 10 minutes
___ … the second time, I rebounded for two minutes again, but this time jumped higher, then simulated walking with my weight first on one foot and then the other and then thirdly I vigorously shifted my full weight first onto one foot and then onto the other as I continued to bounce. I was breathing rapidly so I was definitely putting in effort.
___ … immediately, I climbed up 4 flights of stairs….effortlessly. There was no tightness anywhere in either of my leg muscles. Climbing the stairs was an effortless joy!
___ … fyi ….I am an 80 year old guys 8 days into an exciting self designed grow stronger rehab anti aging program one month and 8 days after an inguinal hernia repair January 19th. I took one month off from exercising to heal.
went on line and checked out what a few sights had to say. All good, … but one site caught my attention and I’ll recommend it to anyone who is serious about their health. The site is http://www.healthextreist.com the article is 10 health benefits of rebounding June 5, 2014 by Lori – 12.32 pm.
My thinking about using the trampoline for anti aging is this: We have 639 muscles. 400 muscles are skeletal. we have stabilizers and mobilizers. To build fitness safely, we must slowly build both sets in balance from head to toe without some muscle groups getting too strong too fast and others not receiving the correct amount of training leading to injury and dysfunction and people get discouraged, lose confidence and quit trying …..a sad state of affairs! 1.12 pm
