Urban Rebounding is a 45-60 minute aerobic workout performed on the Urban Rebounder, utilizing standard aerobic moves, sport-specific conditioning training, core stabilization techniques, and abdominal work performed to high energy music.
The workout not only challenges you cardiovascularly, but manages to continually challenge balance, coordination and proprioception while reducing the stress on the body up to 87%. Rebound exercise is a stations training and was found to be 68% more effective than jogging based on decreased incidence of injury and increased energy expenditure.
Studies done by NASA and the Cooper Aerobic Institute shows that the participant goes from weightlessness at the top of the “bounce” cycle followed by being exposed to several “G’s” (gravity forces) during the rebound phase, significant health benefits take place. During the short interval of added “G” force, the muscles and skeleton exert as if they were carrying a heavy weight. Without producing much strain, it is long enough for muscle and bone building. A more important effect of “G” forces comes into play on the cellular level. While benefits are being studied initial evidence shows benefits to the immune system, improved lymphatic drainage, improved vascular circulation and improved removal of waste, lactic acid and toxins from the body.
