I broke a toe toward the beginning of the year, so I understand having an injury sidetrack you. For the ten minutes I usually do something like:

1 minute health bounce
1 minute light jogging
3 minutes of increasing intensity - varied jumps
1 minute of intense bouncing (high bounce - getting lots of air, moved the rebounder to avoid the light fixture)
3 minutes decreasing intensity
1/2 minute light jog
1/2 minute health bounce

I have tried to increase intensity each week. My plan is when possible to increase the time and intensity. I have to admit I enjoy the intense bouncing and plan to increase the time spent on it - but trying to do so gradually.

Off to bounce . . .

Wow! Those are some cool results! I have acid reflux from time to time, so maybe that'll motivate me to rebound more often. I do it sporadically unfortunately as I'm more focused on running and strength training. When I do do it, I try small amounts of time thinking I'll do it more often but heh, I get distracted by life, etc. and I stop jumping so i've never seen such radical benefits as you've experienced. But once my eye was twitching and i jumped for a few minutes and it immediately went away... and I notice when i jog on it for 30 mins and then go out for a run the next day I run so much faster and better (and you're not supposed to run every day.

A few weeks ago, i started trying to modify calesthenics to try and change up how I jump on it (I either jog, do the health bounce or dance) and I really like that. After reading your post, I tried a bouncy plank (or half downward dog LOL depending on your perspective) and I like to do crunches where I roll and land on my feet and stand (I forget the name of the floor based exercise that i modifed). anyway, I'll have to keep your accomplishments in mind and maybe if I'm consistent for a few weeks, I can compare with yours. Thanks for posting!

Hi TJTEX! So glad to have you post with us!

I am so excited to see what your 30 days of rebounding have accomplished for you! That sounds wonderful!

For not changing your eating---but losing 3 lbs---that sounds fantastic!

Are you bouncing vigorously? (i.e., Are you winded by the end of your 10 minutes?)
Are you bouncing moderately? (i.e., Just slightly breathless, but could keep on bouncing?)
Or are you doing just the health bounce (where your feet never leave the mat)?

I hate to sound like a broken record (or sound like I'm whining), but my ankle has been holding me back ever since mid-March when I fell down hard in my son's gravel driveway and severely twisted my already bad ankle. Anyway, I am only getting to do the health bounce sporadically.

For over a month now I've been able to put in at least 10 minutes of rebounding a day. (OK - skipped 1 day as I was feeling sick.)

A bit about me - in my mid-50s, about 30 pounds overweight, work 40+ hours a week outside the home. While I'm trying to eat more healthy foods, I have not significantly changed my diet.

These are some of the changes I've noted (though I cannot say for sure all are attributable to the rebounding):

- Acid reflux is (knock on wood) now nearly non-existent
- My bladder needs to be emptied less frequently
- Love handles are reduced
- Less wiggle in my upper arms
- Face is thinner
- My pants can be zipped without the need to "suck in"
- Sleep improved (though more improvement here would be appreciated)
- Weight loss only about 3 pounds

Hope to continue with the rebounding, with plan to increase the time and/or adding a morning session.

So what kind of benefits have y'all noted from rebounding?
