Though both studies included the same exercise schedule (three sessions per week for eight weeks), the length of the workouts in the 2016 study were 30 minutes for the first six weeks and 35 minutes for the final two weeks, significantly longer than the 19 minute sessions performed in the recent German study and much closer to the duration of a typical workout.

Also, the participants in the recent study were required to hold a stabilizing bar at all times, which kept their upper body “bent over and held still.” Though this posture may have contributed to the dramatic increase in the participants’ back muscle strength, it may also explain why there wasn’t quite as much cardio and body fat improvement as with the previous study, whose participants were allowed to move freely and engage their entire body while bouncing.
