Over the years much controversy
has been raised about what is the best form of exercise
to get and stay well. Our bodies are made "to wear
out, not rust out." A great percentage of the human
body is composed of muscle tissue. The heart is a muscle
for example. Our lungs contract and expand because of
chest muscles. We are held together by muscles, tissues
and skin. Muscles are intended to be moved. Their strength
is dependent upon regular movement. But how much and
what kind of exercise has been debated for years.
Do some form of movement daily for 30 minutes. The type
and amount of movement will vary depending upon each
person's unique situation. If, for example, you are
sick, your trampoline exercise must be modified to accommodate
the extra energy the body needs to heal. However, deep
breathing, those expanding chest walls, helps the healing
process Regardless of your state of fitness, we believe
that deep breathing, stretching, joint movement and
weight resistance activities are crucial.
Stretching must be a part of every form of trampoline
exercise and needs to be done both before and after
Weight resistance exercise is essential for maintaining
bone density. Upper body weight resistance is extremely
important as we all get some lower body weight resistance
merely through walking.
Movement is essential for good lymph flow. Since our
lymph system automatically collects wastes and transports
them to the skin, kidneys, colon and lungs for excretion,
each person must include a form of trampoline exercise
that promotes lymph movement. Trampoline exercise is
a good way to stimulate lymph movement.
Unsafe trampoline exercise does more harm than good.
Injuries can lead to long term disability leaving a
person to be unable to do the exercise they so vitally
Trampoline exercise should be enjoyable and can promote
relaxation as well. Choose an exercise you enjoy. Do
something that involves socialization as well. Find
a plan that can realistically do on a daily basis. Build
it into your regular daily agenda.
Combining trampoline exercise and self defense skills
is an efficient use of time.
Trampoline exercise has many benefits in addition to
gaining and maintaining muscle tone. It stimulates blood
flow, improves respiration, and promotes the elimination
of toxins that are trapped in tissues and organs.
