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.”
