Did you know that trampolining or simply jumping is a good exercise that boosts your energy? This type of activity which was introduced as child’s play can actually do some benefits to your body and your physical and mental well-being. Among the major organs that benefit from your jumping on a trampoline are your cells, heart, bones and your brain. Here are the facts:
1. Trampoline Exercises Body Cells
Studies suggest that the G force exerted on the body by the bouncing motion caused by jumping on a trampoline helps to “push out” the toxins that accumulate in the body.
Toxins get into the body for a lot of factors including smoking, through a cut or broken skin, through the body’s openings such as the mouth and nose, or through the body’s normal metabolic process. But most of these toxic wastes are eliminated from the body through the liver, kidneys, lung, colon and skin.
The trampoline helps to eject these toxins by the increase of nutrients and oxygen in the body caused by the lower cell pressure while the body is airborne. Many health experts consider this as cell “exercise.”
2. Bouncing Makes the Heart Health
Bouncing on a trampoline is good for the cardiovascular system. Among the benefits you can get from exercising on a trampoline are:
– It makes your leg muscles strong and fit. This helps to lighten the load of the heart in its main function of pumping blood and oxygen in the body;
– It helps you to regulate your body weight. It also reduces the likelihood of obesity;
– It helps the body in its function of circulating the fluid called lymph which catches unwelcome substances in the body such as bacteria, fatty acids and intestinal fluids from organs and tissues, while sending white blood cells and immune cells to destroy harmful cells that invade the body;
– It helps to reduce the body’s cholesterol and triglycerides levels;
– It helps to facilitate metabolism and digestion.
3. Jumping Strengthens Bones
Jumping or exercising with the use of a trampoline shows that it is beneficial to your bones by way of improving bone mineral content. This translates to improved bone density and reducing the likelihood of fracture due to osteoporosis.
4. Trampolining Exercises Motor Nerves
Jumping on a trampoline helps to sharpen your motor skills because the exercise requires you to maintain height and balance at the same time while your body is also responding to the downward pull of gravity. This exercise involves all the sides of your body and brain which helps to keep your motor nerves well coordinated.
