Rebounding – the Simplest, Powerful and Most Effective Exercise! Update!

June 11, 2013 by Healthyhank

Update ~four years later… Now at 72 years old I can appreciate my 25 years of rebounding! During these past 12 years I have recovered from a serious spinal injury and I believe that rebounding played/plays a vital role in solving and maintaining my quality of life!  When I first broke my back and was in bed for over three months I was not able to use the re-bounder.  Shortly after I would just stand on the material and mentally visualize myself going up and down.  Then slowly but surely I was able to move up and down and after many months was able to re-bound.  Just the mental challenge was part of my recovery.  When anyone see’s my MRI’s even now you would shake your heads in amazement… God is so good!

When I first get up in the morning I take care of the basics and then go out to my gym.  No matter how stiff and painful I feel, I will rebound very lightly and within five minutes I feel better.  Normally I will rebound lightly for five minutes, more aggressively for the next five and the then quite aggressively the last five.  Knowing how important our lymphatic system is, I have a feeling of well-being after I finish… From this point I do weights, and then finish with my inversion table to stretch my spine similar to traction [this was my pain medications for about 5 years of my recovery]!

After over twenty years, my re-bounder finally gave out…  I had a client that bought a Cellerciser so I looked into it, met David Hall and understood why his patented design is so good for us.  Since I have used the Cellerciser [check out some stories] I have seen changes in my body that are exciting; namely lean muscle development and contouring… Compared to my old one this has numerous design benefits that are unique.  Remember that you will flex every muscle in your body many times each minute!  If this is too pricey try to purchase one that will hold your weight and talks about the strength characteristics of the unit.

For those that have not seen the original post on rebounding it’s below…

Twenty five years ago I learned that we had over two times more lymphatic fluid than we have blood!  What are these lymphatic vessels, lymph fluid and lymph nodes that make up our lymphatic system?  Well along with your spleen the lymphatic system carries the white blood cells made in your bone marrow that defend you against germs.  Your bone marrow and thymus produce the cells in lymph.  They are all part of this important system

Remember the blister on your heel?  It had clear fluid – that’s lymphatic fluid.  This fluid bathes every cell and ensures that they are able to get the care that they need.  The lymphatic system helps clear away infections and keeps your body fluids in balance.  When it’s not working properly (becoming toxic and sludge) fluid will build up in tissue and the nodes will swell called “swollen glands“.  The result of sludge fluid and a toxic lymph system is infections, leading to the worst – cancer.  The lymphatic system is the ‘garbage collector’ sucking up metabolic garbage and toxins from extracellular fluid of every organ! Critically important!

So how do we ensure that we keep our lymph fluids clean and flowing?  I want to talk about rebounding on a small trampoline.  You can Google ‘rebounding’ and get a ton of information that will be very helpful.  While you’re looking into that you can also search ‘body brushing’ – this is also another effective way to move lymph fluids.  Rebounding is by far the most effective.  I am able to rebound even though I fractured my back 11 years ago and had severe spinal column damage

You don’t even have to be jumping off of the material on the small trampoline or rebounder – just keep your heals on the material and start to move your arms like a turkey trying to fly.  Start slowly when starting for just a minute or two and later work up to 10 -15 minutes a day.  On the bottom cycle you will compress waste into the fluid and on the top of the cycle you will manually open the one way valves of the lymph vessels and move fluid into and through the lymph nodes – the lymphatic filters.  This opening and closing of the valves will move fluid through the nodes and accomplish a very important function.

My wife and I have been rebounding for over twenty years and I believe that it is probably the single most important reason for our health!  In our 70’s we don’t use any prescription drugs.

Remember when kids start bouncing on the bed?  The more they bounced the happier they got!  That’s because they were producing endorphins…  When you rebound after about 5 minutes you will begin to produce endorphins and this will bring your mood up to a pleasing level.  When I am having a difficult day I rebound numerous times…

Remember, there are few things that you can do that would be better for your immune system than rebounding on a small trampoline.   There are all kinds available from elaborate to simple inexpensive ones.  A moderately priced one would probably be better than the cheapest one.  Enjoy this experience and make it a permanent part of your daily routine.  It will insure you a long healthy life!  Be blessed.  Educate yourself and live!  Remember we are on our own!
