Rebounding for Health

Rebounding for Health

You can get a great workout on the rebounder and stay healthy, while doing something that is really enjoyable and lifts your spirits. Mini-trampolines came out in the 70’s and I’ve had one ever since. It is the perfect exercise to give strength to every cell in your body. It was used by the NASA program to repair astronaut’s bones when they came back from deep space. You can keep one in your office and get up and bounce for a few minutes when you start flagging. It will bring you back to life in just minutes. Jump before important phone calls, when you feel overwhelmed, or when you want your mind to be sharp.

Now I’ve found an overhead system to use with a rebounder that makes rebounding even more valuable because it adds upper body strengthening and makes even beginners feel safe. Weight training is essential for your bones as you age and this system uses your own body weight, moving against gravity, to strengthen your bones. For older people there is a wonderful feeling of safety from having the trapeze to hold onto.

Rebounding for Health

The system I recommend for the average person is the overhead system by Freedom Spring, together with the top quality rebounder from ReboundAir. You can order both items separately below. The overhead system comes with a doorway bar that you have to screw into the doorway.

If you have health issues, like scoliosis, back problems, overweight, etc. then the complete Freedom Spring system with the overhead bar and gentler rebounder is best for you. See the bottom of the page.

For most people I am recommending the ReboundAir, the first rebounder I ever had. Al Carter, the founder has written the definitive books on rebounding and his family company is reliable and honest and has been dominant in this market for 40 years.

There are cheaper rebounders on the market but this is one area where you really get what you pay for. The cheap rebounders are too jerky and can cause nerve damage. The reboundairs are worth every nickel. Go to ReboundAir to check out the huge amount of information on their site. The original family company sold out recently and the new company doesn’t work with distributors so I will not be selling them any more.

You can also get a stabilizer bar from Reboundair which attaches right to the rebounder for less vigorous rebounding. It is a great addition for women who feel a little unstable and nervous, especially in the beginning.

The overhead part of the Freedom Spring System is an incredible new addition to the practice of rebounding. It attaches in a doorway. It has elastic bands and a stabilizing bar. For beginners the overhead stabilizing bar makes you feel incredibly safe. For advanced users it adds the ability to do some moves that would be awkward without it, like back kicks to increase the strength of the back extensors and the whole spine. Rebounding also improves balance even when you hold onto the trapeze bar as you do in the beginning. Then you can use the elastic bands to do all the shoulder and arm strengthening exercises you need. The elastic bands come in different strengths so you can move up as you get stronger.

There is a rebounder that comes with the Freedom Spring system and it is great for people who are overweight and sedentary, new to exercise, or have joint problems. It is a much softer bounce than the Reboundair. So beginners should consider that whole system instead of the ReboundAir. You can go here to find out about the Freedom Spring – http://www.freedomspring.com/– but come back here to buy because I have it cheaper than anyone.

I’ve been using the overhead system along with the ReboundAir rebounder for about 6¬†years now and I love it. I do a lymph bounce for two minutes right out of bed. Then I do two 6-10 minute segments a day about 90 minutes after meals to help with my blood sugar. There is a complete segment about rebounding on the Osteoporosis Exercises videos that come with your vest

The Freedom Spring Overhead Stabilizing and Resistance System Osteoporosis
Rebounding by itself is not available to everyone. It seems like it is best suited for people that feel confident enough to bounce in an unsupported manner. It is unlikely that an 84 year old woman with a balance problem or a typical stroke survivor would ever go near a rebounder without this overhead system. The safe feeling this overhead system imparts makes rebounding available to everyone.

The Overhead Strength Training and Stabilization System consists of a bar that remains stationary in a doorway, from which a second bar is suspended with adjustable straps for the purpose of stabilization and use in various exercises. Also suspended from the stationary bar are three sets of resistance cords with hand grips, in varying degrees of strength.

There are easy-to-open clamps on the resistance cords to be easily attached to the overhead system or to the Bouncerciser itself. Placing the resistance cord on the Bouncerciser, allows more movements exercising the upper body, and toning additional sets of muscle groups.

OVERHEAD RESISTANCE SYSTEM: Stationary Bar, expands to a 25″ to 40″ doorway. Cradles are screwed into the doorway that hold the stationary bar. Cradles have three holes for screws and adhesive for more reinforcement and to aid in proper installation.

I can’t tell you how much I loved the bouncing on the Freedom Spring. My old rebounder was too rough for me. By holding onto the bar and using the bands, it took the pressure of my back and I didn’t get that jarring nerve pain. What a difference. I haven’t been this pain free in YEARS. Now I tend to overdo so I’m going to listen to my body as best I can and be gentle gentle gentle.. I’ve been getting ready for my new system since I ordered it by using my old rebounder 3 times a day plus use my large trampoline but still, when I used the system, I had a work out I didn’t expect and wow, did I sweat! I still feel soooooo good! I am so glad I bought this from you! Mary
