That is why I recommend the bellicon for people with back problems or lymph problems. With the bellicon you can move more in a fun way. I use the bellicon almost daily!'
Train regularly and at your own pace
If you are going to train, do it briefly and with moderate intensity instead of a long intensive workout. Try to make it a routine to stand on the bellicon® for at least 10-15 minutes every day. If you suffer from chronic or acute back pain, ask your doctor to determine the most suitable training programme for you.
Free poster and DVDs with exercises
With each bellicon® mini trampoline you will receive a free poster, two DVDs and a 2-month subscription to the online bellicon® Home platform. This is handy, because it allows you to create your own ideal training programme with exercises that appeal to you.
Choose the right bungee strength
The bellicon® mini trampoline can be assembled to your wishes. What you should pay particular attention to is the bungee strength. This is determined by your weight and the intensity of the workout. In the case of back issues, we recommend choosing a bungee strength that corresponds to the category 'Health bounce', with the somewhat softer elastic bands. This is how you compose the optimal bellicon® if you have back pain.
The bellicon® Classic with a diameter of 112 cm is ideal for people with back problems. You will have enough space to do all your exercises. Do you want to store the mini trampoline quickly and easily after use? Then choose the version with folding legs. Will the bellicon® remain in place after use? Then the version with screw legs is the most convenient. And you can also choose the bungees in a colour that matches your interior.
Which bungee strength for my bellicon®?
The optimal bungee strength depends on your weight. Using the bungee strength configurator you can easily calculate the correct strength. In case of back problems we recommend some softer elastic bands. In that case, choose for the 'health bounce'. This bungee strength is slightly more flexible. Extra advantage: the mat is also somewhat more unstable, so you automatically train your core muscles.
Xbase training tube
Want to vary a little more than the many possibilities your mini trampoline already offers? There is also an Xbase training tube available as an option. With this you can, among other things, stabilize your core. In case of back problems, the goal is not to get off the mat, but to keep in contact with it.
This way you will automatically work on a healthier, more vital and more energetic life!
Regular training on the bellicon® mini trampoline has numerous positive effects on your entire body. Bouncing on this device not only effectively strengthens the cardiovascular system and all muscles, but also activates the metabolism of each cell. The moderate movement on the bellicon® also promotes the body's self-healing functions. This in turn has positive effects on some of our societal diseases.
