It seems like every time I use my rebounder I feel so much taller and lighter. Makes my back feel so good!

I have mentioned on other threads that I just do a tiny bit -
literally counting steps not minutes
So today I did 50 health bounces - 10 marching steps with each leg - 30 bounces and 10 marching and 20 bounces - trying to figure a way to move towards health and benefit from the rebounder and DO IT!!!! Very slow start but a start.... 5 days in a row of 100 bounces including todays intro of the marching steps.

I just revisited these links again too--it is good to do every now and again. . . bouncing thru more planes....but bouncing at all, how ever it is done, is better than no bouncing at all

OH wow I just saw these (still clearing out gobs of email in my account...). Will need to check them out soon. I find myself swinging both arms at the same time like a pendalum, and then wondering if I shouldn't be criss-cross swinging them to introduce a mild twist in my core and maybe work a different set of ab muscles?? Or would it make a difference??

Saw a work out video today which was intended for folks to learn new jump rope techniques as a way to develop their over-all conditioning level for boxing. Now, I'm not interested in getting in a ring and boxing any one (especially at my age!) but these tips for me work fabulous for workouts on the rebounder (without the jump rope, although to add balance I may imitate that with my arms some times) for some excellent overall conditioning. I liked this instructor mentioned when you first get started working out to try your best to keep your mouth closed and breathe through the nose to build better overall conditioning over time. It was a refreshing point of view to consider.

Basic Tips:
youtu.be/GRStB06uhgE

Tricks (I thought these were especially rebounder friendly)
youtu.be/JVJmFj7cM1I

not really directly related to intervals--as these others were--but related to balance....this same youtube channel has a video on balance drills which can be done to help accomplish a lot of other things in life. just watching these, I realized I use a lot of these tips when rebounded and water jogging and in other areas of life. they could prove handy...

Thank you CURLYCURLY62 ! I really liked that video! I couldn't complete it all - now!! but seemed easy enough to follow despite the language differences. I went ahead and subscribed so I would see the other links as well. I'm repeating the links below in clickable format, just to make it a little easier to get to the link.

Haven't been on the site for a while but have been using my ReboundAir mini-trampoline. I found this HIIT series that is from Portugal i think, and it is absolutely amazing. So motivational. This is video #11 but you'll be able to see the other ones listed on the right hand side. Amazing workout....great music and so much fun!!

The other day, on a lark, I typed in "rebounder workouts 30 minutes " in YouTube, words to that effect - and there was quite a list! Many were brand-specific like workouts on Bellicon etc, but still, it was fun to just pick some at random and jump along for however much time I had or felt like (some days I only felt like 5 minutes and gave myself permission to do 5 and still ended up with 10 or 15 minutes!! )

If nothing else, I didn't have to fiddle with loading up a playlist... Or would hear a new song that I could copy to a playlist!
Yay!

I keep looking for a "Daily Chat" or "Water cooler News" type of sticky note just to share interesting articles in the news.. Yesterday in Wichita Eagle paper there was this article "Swings, Slides and seesaws: Try little-kid fun for big-kid fitness results" by Nancy Churnin of Dallas Morning News. Ours is a McKlasky (sp?) newspaper group. I need to check and see if I can actually find a free link on Kansas.com but Dallas paper wasn't playing nice. I did find this link, but not sure how long it will last before URL gets changed or canceled:

estyle/health-fitness/20131202-fitneR>ss-for-the-whole-family-playing-with

I'll edit in other links as I can find them (ahhh I thought my phone was going to throw out this message!).

Anyway they mention trampoline several times in article and have a photo of a man jumping on a trampoline with his daughter (assuming it is a photo of the family quoted in article and not just some random stock photo...).

Enjoy!

And I am off to the rebounder!!

Well I tried the interval app and really like it. Hearing the alert go off and changing the intensity makes the session go much faster.

I did a modified version of this Tabata interval training as I am just getting the hang of this but I was amazed at how fast the time went by! I used the APP on my iPhone and it worked great. Now if I can just be consistent...I have completed THREE whole days in a row of exercise! Not much I know, but for me it's quite good. So I am working on being consistent right now. emoticon

very cool - as I don't have a good way to incorporate HIIT / tabata yet (not until I get a new battery for my VibraWatch with vibrating alarm alerts. Most of those HRT 's and watches have alert tones I can't hear.). I don't have my reading glasses on to tell but not sure if it will run in the background while I'm out walking and tracking my mileage on iMapMyWalk app which I predominently use... (and it's designed to work in spite of having iPod or using text or phone etc.).

But still might be worth having for the rebounder!!

Thanks!!

Thanks Beth! I have just started trying tabata training on my rebounder. Cathe Friedrich has added a timer feature to her workout manager that sounds like the app you described. I like this timer because it has Cathe's voice telling you to go and stop. (Big Cathe fan).

I don't have a bar with the bellicon either. I have an old pilates bar nearby and sometimes I have to grab it. The goal with this workout is two to three times per week, and ideally off days would be strength training and walking (70% intensity).

To increase the intensity even more, during the run cycle you can (safely) get off the rebounder and do jump squats (any plyometrics) for one minute. I've even hopped on one foot for 30 seconds, then switched. Anything you do with your legs should increase your heart rate.

Wow, this is really GREAT, Beth! THANK YOU!

I especially want to emphasize the "holding on to a safety bar" aspect.
It's my biggest regret for not getting one myself.

I told myself that I would park my rebounder next to something (my cabinets, etc.) and I could just reach out to steady myself if necessary. But it's just not the same as a safety bar...

Do you ever run out of rebounding ideas? Here's one for interval training.

1) Please wear a heart monitor and try to keep your heart rate at 70% intensity. I have a pink Polar, and it's been great.

2) If you have a smart phone, go the the App store and download Gymboss. It's free. If you need any help setting it up, let me know. It took a little while for me to figure it out. Gymboss can be programmed for intervals and a timer.

3) Set up new intervals in Gymboss to walk for 2 minutes and run for 1 minute. Set up 10 rounds. I programmed a 10 second prestart. Then turn on your favorite music.

4) Safety is key. If you don't have a safety bar, then have something near for support if you need it.

5) During the walk cycle, try to establish a brisk walk/bounce. Lifting knees as high as you can and moving arms will get your heart rate up. Basically you are duplicating a fast walk around your neighborhood. In the run cycle, you want to speed it up to a jog. You can also try bouncing deeper during the run cycle along with knee tucks.

This is a great way to burn a ton of calories, only 30 minutes. If you try it, let me know how it works for you.
~Beth
