Ready to train and workout like an Astronaut? At Trampoline Park Zero Gravity Zone, you can start your aerial adventure…
According to NASA, the famous U.S-based National Aeronautics and Space Administration, discovered many years ago – that Trampoline exercise is a 3x more effective fitness training than jogging. If you don’t believe us – google it. With every bounce on a trampoline, you basically fight the pull of gravity. This means, that the higher you jump, the more energy you use, which also increases the amount of calories you burn. Each landing on a trampoline doesn’t only stop your downward movement, but also forces your muscles to react to as much as three times the force of gravity. Jumping on trampolines also fine-tunes your sense of balance. Working out on trampolines is not just more effective than other methods like jogging, it’s also healthier for your body. Even the most intense trampoline exercise will inflict less bone and joint impact than running. Trampoline exercises burn lots of calories, build heart and lung fitness and improve your balance, so take a look at these 3 Trampoline Exercises you must try!
The Gravity Jog combines the benefits of trampolining and jogging, but without the bad impact stress on your joints and knees. Begins this exercise at the center of a trampoline, with a few gentle warm-up jumps to establish your balance. Once you have a steady rhythm of jumps (not too high), start the jogging part by landing on an alternate foot with each jump. Lift your knee as high as you can for each step. Try this for three minutes at a time. You can increase the time for more intense workout and calorie burning benefits. Wind down by returning to your gentle, up-and-down warm-up routine.
The Straight-Up Dance
As with almost all trampoline exercises, the basic movement is jumping up and down. However, at the peak of each jump, during the time you hover motionless at zero gravity, try to introduce a few dance moves. These can be a slight twist, a kick, pulling up your knees or almost anything else that lets you return to the proper, straight upright position before landing. Exercise to a lively music beat and catch your rhythm and speed.
The Plain Power Bounce
Most trampoline fitness experts recommend to start with the simple and plain up-and-down bouncing routine. They claim it is one of the best exercises for muscle toning. Why is that? Well, the repeated change between Gravity Zero (weightlessness) and multiples of normal gravity stimulates the flow in your lymphatic system, which also enhances clearance of waste from exercising muscles and stimulates your immune system. The Plain Power Bounce only requires that you jump at the center of the trampoline in smooth up-and-down movements, making sure you bounce hard enough to lift your feet with each jump. It takes time to get a grip of trampolining, so if you are not confident in your balance for dancing or jogging on trampolines yet, start with the safe but effective Plain Power Bounce. vertical bounce is safest. And always remember – observe all safety regulations!So if NASA trains its Astronauts on Trampolines, why shouldn’t you?
