Bouncing or Jumping is a Cellular Exercise
Your body has 60 trillion cells. The 2 to 4 G forces (gravitational pull) involved in bouncing squeezes out toxins. Then, during the brief weightless period when the body is suspended in the air, the lower pressure in the cell promotes the movement of nutrients into the cells. Thus the flow of materials to and from cells is improved. It is like getting every cell in your body to exercise.
Exercising on the trampoline lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease in 3 ways:
By strengthening the legs so that they act as an auxiliary pump for the cardiovascular system. This lessens the strain on the heart.
The increased pulse rate strengthens the heart.
The strengthening of both the voluntary and involuntary muscular system makes the entire system to work more efficiently.
Increases Lymphatic Circulation
The body’s lymphatic system is a network of vessels that transports nutrients and drains toxin products from tissues. It does not contain its own pumping mechanism and relies on external pressure including breathing and muscular contraction to propel its contents through a system of one-way lymphatic valves. Trampoline use helps the lymphatic system eliminate toxins by increasing the gravitational pull as you bounce.
Here’s how it works:
At the bottom of the bounce when the gravitational force is greatest, the valves are closed and toxins are squeezed out from between the cells. As the body bounds up, valves are still closed, toxins are loosened from the cells and nutrients are passed from lymph to the cells. At the height of the bounce the body is weightless, and the valves are open. As the body descends, fluid flows. This vastly increases one’s level of health.
Increased Bone Density
Bone, like muscle, can become stronger from moderate physical stress. Studies have shown that those who exercise at least three times a week have a higher bone mineral content. Improving your bone density aids to reduce the chance of debilitating associated with osteoporosis.
Osteoporotic bones is thin and porous. Normal bone is dense and strong
Development of Motor Skill
Improves motor skills. Using your trampoline improves motor skills by forcing the brain to function bilaterally.
