09-28-2007, 06:46 PM
I bought my first rebounder from urbanrebounding.com and ended up jumping on it for atleast 20 mins last night, I didnt expect to do it for so long the first time but I was having soo much fun that I couldnt stop, lol and well, today I'm in AGONY... my lower back is killing me, it hurts to take a deep breath and I have for some reason, pain in my lower abdominal, almost near my pelvic area, feels like all the muscles are pulled. It's hard to laugh or take big breaths. is this normal???? I wonder if I Just over-did it too much...

Well, if that's the only thing you did differently...
What you WANT to do is slow, easy stretching. Gently work into and through the sensations. They'll dissipate and not last as long if you do.
I rebound at least 3-4 times a week for 30-45 minutes at a time and have never experienced what you are talking about. Maybe it will take a while for your body to get used to the movements. Until then take it easy and after a few days come back to it again, do a little less and then see how you feel the next day.

My guess would be that you worked muscle groups that have had little to no stress in the past. Any new muscle training will cause delayed onset muscle soreness. It is due to microtears in the muscles fibers. In afew days(or less) they will rebuild and heal to be stronger than before. Slowly but surely you will experience less and less post workout soreness in those muscle groups unless you increase the intensity and duration.
Ginger will help with the inflamation a bit.

I like to warm up doing the "health bounce" for a few minutes when getting on my rebounder. The health bounce is bouncing with your feet in constant contact with the mat. After my "health bounce" warm up I like to jog on my rebounder.
