Trampolining gets the blood flowing, it strengthens the muscles, and it helps people find better balance and coordination. It is particularly effective as a cardio exercise; more calories are burned while jumping than jogging, and even as your heart beats faster than ever before, you hardly feel tired. Rather, you want to rebound even more. Here are some other ways that trampolining is good for your heart:
Rebounding has anti-aging benefits
As we get older, the intensity with which our heart pumps blood reduces gradually. In adults, pumping force decreases by 8% after every 10 years. At the same time, the lungs lose capacity, bones lose mineral content, and muscles get weaker.
This is the aging process and the only way to slow it down is by exercising. 3o minutes of rebounding on a trampoline will have your heart pumping blood faster than it has in a long time.
Trampolining makes the heart stronger
By increasing your heart’s performance and working it harder by trampolining, you ensure that you are never run ragged in your day-to-day life. Better heart performance also means you pump more blood with fewer beats, and your resting heart rate is significantly lowered.
It Lowers Blood Pressure
Rebounding eases stress and allows oxygen to circulate faster through the body. This, in turn, increases red blood cell count and lowers the blood pressure.
Next time someone tells you that trampolining is for kids, be sure to educate them on how their heart stands to benefit from the exercise. As an added bonus, trampolining is very exciting and provides relief from other health conditions like headaches, joint inflammation, and lymphedema.
