View Full Version : rebounders out there?
10-27-2006, 11:53 AM
I have been rebounding for a while, off and on. I like it but i never really sweat a lot. Of all I have read about it I should be getting similar benefits, and maybe more, compared to running. But if I go run on the road I SWEAT!! Is this ok? :confused:

You may have to push yourself longer times to build up the rebounding sweat, or may not at all. Check for benefits and not hard on the knees which running may give some people.

Have you tried rebounding DVDs? There are a few good ones out there. I don't sweat profusely the way I do on a treadmill or an elliptical machine, but I feel that it's toning my entire body.

It is also good for your lymphatic and immune system and helps to tighten your skin

When I rebound, the faster I go, I start to sweat. Good music helps. High kicks also help with that.

Holding light weights (1-2 pounds) also helps raise the heart rate. Have fun!

Bethanie - changes? Let's see ... loss of cellulite, for one thing. Stronger thigh muscles which help with my achy right knee. I don't know what contributes more to these changes -- the raw diet or rebounding. Probably both. What I'm most excited about is the fact that I can now honestly say that I love exercising. I never did, but I do now.

I've rebounded or trampolined for years, just not consistantly. I'm now starting afresh -- 30 minutes a day, broken down to 15 in the morning and 15 in the afternoon. I'll add to that as I gain endurance. Thinking about adding 1 minute per each session daily.
Years ago when I jumped on the trampoline daily for at least 30 minutes. I felt so good (and this was on a sad diet). The main thing I remember noticing back them was when a bunch of us had gone mountain climbing (really hills, it was in Oklahoma) was that my legs didn't ache afterwards like everyone else. I was jazzed! And painfree!

I rebound about 30 minutes a day everyday except during TOM (that's the only time when rebounding is NOT fun! :o ).

Hi all :)
This may sound silly...... okay yes it does....
But on the rebounder, do you "run/jog" while your bouncing, or do you bounce up and down legs not in a running motion?? :o
I got a rebounder a little while ago and do sortove a mix of both....

I do anything I can think of -- dance, even jump rope. Front kick, back kick, high kicks, jumping jacks, etc.
Have fun with it. Easiest with a exciting movie on.

Hello everyone. I have the Stamina Aeropilates with the Trampoline bottom. I would like to know does the rebounder give you more of a runnig or jumping work out. Doing the trampoline laying down, does work my legs and my stomach. But I saw the rebounder and though that looks so easy on the knees. I have an elliptical machine but it not that friendly on the knees, I have arthirites in both knees. My question is does anyone have a weight problem more than a 100lb and still use the rebounder? What is the weight limit on the rebounder? Should I just stick with the AeroPilates for now, or do more exerise to bring up my heart rate. Thanks any help would be appreciated.

This morning I had a great work-out on the rebounder. I usually change my routine around, but this time I concentrated on longer sets.
This is what I did
1-2 minutes warm up, light bouncing, while stretching out arms
5 minutes jogging
5 minutes twisting with little dumbbells...did different arm work-outs while twisting
5 minutes - 100 jumping jacks, high kicks (10 each side), more jumping jacks
1-2 minutes - cool down: light bouncing while stretching arms again
After the rebounding I did my 5 Tibetan Rites, with 21 spins and 16 sets of the 4 other rites.
So it was probably a good 1/2 hour workout for me.
