Jumping for Health  & The Miracles of Rebound Exercise

Jumping for Health by Dr. Morton Walker and The Miracles of Rebound Exercise by Albert Carter provide the following advantages of regular rebounding:

  1. It provides an increased G-force (gravitational load), which strengthens the musculoskeletal systems.
  2. It protects the joints from the chronic stress that is created by exercising on hard surfaces.
  3. Rebounding is 68% more efficient than jogging (as noted by NASA in a study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology.)
  4. It increases capacity for respiration.
  5. It circulates more oxygen to the tissues.
  6. It establishes a better equilibrium between the oxygen required by the tissues and the oxygen made available.
  7. It aids lymphatic circulation by stimulating the millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system.
  8. It tends to reduce the height to which the arterial pressures rise during exertion.
  9. It lessens the time during which blood pressure remains abnormal after severe activity.
  10. It assists in the rehabilitation of a heart problem.
  11. It increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells.
  12. It improves resting metabolic rate so that more calories are burned for hours after exercise.
  13. It causes muscles to perform work in moving fluids through the body to lighten the heart’s load.
  14. It decreases the volume of blood pooling in the veins of the cardiovascular system preventing chronic edema.
  15. It encourages collateral circulation by increasing the capillary count in the muscles and decreasing the distance between the capillaries and the target cells.
  16. It strengthens the heart and other muscles in the body so that they work more efficiently.
  17. It allows the resting heart to beat less often.
  18. It lowers circulating cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
  19. It lowers low-density lipoprotein (bad) and increases high-density lipoprotein (good) within the blood holding off the incidence of coronary artery disease.
  20. It promotes tissue repair and it helps manage body composition and improves muscle-to-fat ratio.
  21. It increases the mitochondria count within the muscle cells, essential for endurance.
  22. It adds to the alkaline reserve of the body, which may be of significance in an emergency requiring prolonged effort.
  23. Rebounding helps to reduce body fat; firms arms, legs, thighs, abdomen, and hips; increases agility; strengthens muscles overall; provides an aerobic effect for the heart.
  24. Rebounding stimulates healing and cleansing and is perfect for those that are immune compromised. Rebound author and lecturer Linda Brooks states that rebounding two minutes every hour “is an ideal protocol for defense against cancer. In just two minutes the entire lymphatic system is flushed,” and the white blood cell count nearly triples, providing a greater defense system to destroy cancer cells.
  25. Rebounding can be performed year round indoors or outdoors rain or shine. The rebounder can be stored as a fold up rebounder for easy access and convenience.
  26. The rebounder can provide years of daily exercise. It is convenient for those that are homebound, unable to jog, or access a gym. It is readily portable (folds and fits into its own travel case) and stores neatly out of the way. Great for apartment, home, trailer dwellers or travelers.
  27. You can run several miles in place while rehearsing a speech, singing, talking on the phone, watching T.V., listening to music, or while jumping outdoors in the sun.
