New research, published in the German Journal of Sports Medicine (Deutsche Zeitschrift für Sportmedizin) this February, reconfirms the effectiveness of rebounding exercise to significantly improve fitness, even when following a relatively light workout schedule.
A new study, published in the International Journal of Sports Science, has concluded that rebounding exercise is twice as effective at improving aerobic fitness and 50% more efficient at burning fat than running. It also showed that exercising on a mini-trampoline increased vertical jumping ability.
The study was conducted over a period of 8 weeks with participants exercising three days a week and otherwise maintaining “their usual diet and lifestyle habits during the study period.”
CHICAGO, IL – February 23, 2016 - bellicon USA, the world’s leader in rebounder equipment, today announced two new models in bellicon’s line of premium-quality fitness trampolines: the bellicon Plus and the bellicon Jumping® Fitness.
Both new models include an integrated T-bar accessory that allows users to perform fast-paced, high-energy workouts that would be impossible without the use of hand support. The bellicon, with its custom-formulated bungee suspension and German engineering, has long been considered the best fitness trampoline, or “rebounder,” on the market. These new models represent the first major addition to its product line since the founding of bellicon USA in 2010.
We've learned a great deal about the effects of rebounding and try to keep up with current health and fitness studies, especially those that have some relationship to rebounding, which allows us to share information or advice with our customers. Because of all this, we felt that I’d be a good choice to provide a response to the wordpress blog post "How not to be conned by bellicon USA":
The webpage contains a lot of material, making it a bit difficult to address every particular in a single statement (as much as we would like to), so I’m going to focus on the credibility of the posts themselves as a way of addressing the reliability of them as a whole.
Are You Sore Or Is It Something More?
Exercise is a healthy habit to establish but for those new to exercising or starting a new routine, it may be difficult to determine if the resulting soreness is part of the normal spectrum of pain or whether it is a symptom of injury. Exercise routines need to be done with correct alignment, awareness of one’s sensations as they relate to the performed action, and with modification to accommodate previous injuries. Knowing the difference between good and bad pain helps individuals to alter their practice and seek medical attention when necessary.
Bouncing around might be fun, but it won't give you an effective workout, right? Wrong! Exercising on a trampoline provides plenty of smiles while giving you a great workout at the same time. The bellicon trampoline takes the benefits of a rebounder to the next level to give you one of the best trampoline workouts you can achieve.
Congratulations on your decision to get into shape! It is one that can make you feel better physically, but the benefits can go much further. Exercise can boost your mood, help you think more clearly, and keep away unwanted pounds.
If you’re not used to exercising, the most important piece of advice is to start slowly. Starting too fast can get you injured, discourage you if you feel disappointed in yourself, and lead to burnout. This is how you can start slow with exercise so you can make it part of your life for the long-term.
By now, it’s no secret that the bellicon rebounder is fun and easy to use. Mini trampolines are an excellent way to not only burn off stress, pounds, and boost your immune system, but they are also a fun way to pass the time and get active while you’re at it. We wanted to show you some fun and interesting ways that people around the world are using the bellicon and how you can start using yours today!
“I resolve to lose weight and look great.”
Let’s see a show of hands who has heard this recently or maybe even said it themselves. It’s OK, you’re among friends, since “Weight Loss” and “Look and Feel Better” seem to top pretty much everyone's list of favorite New Year’s resolutions.
With all the so-good but so-bad food, stresses and crummy weather we’ve all dealt with over the holidays, the start of a new year is a perfect opportunity to explore new options or return to a shelved goal of a slimmer, healthier you in 2015.
Have you been struggling to come up with a new business idea? Is writer’s block keeping you from finishing that screenplay? Are you having trouble finding a theme for this year’s fundraiser? Get your creative juices flowing again with a brain-boosting exercise break. Just 20 minutes of aerobic exercise can kick your brain into high gear, particularly when it comes to producing new and creative ideas.
Of course, using physical activity to help the thinking process is nothing new. Throughout time, people with something on their minds have paced floors or gone for long walks to process their thoughts, but it’s only during the last few decades that scientific research has shown just how it helps.
