Q: Can rebounding be a viable way of getting in a workout?
~Quick to Work it
A: Absolutely! Rebounding on a trampoline is an excellent, low-impact way that doesn't put stress on the ankle and knee joints, and can be as effective if not better than running! 10-20 minutes of rebounding is what's usually recommended.

Interestingly, astronauts know all about the beneficial effects of using the G-force to work on cells and increase mitochondrial functioning, which you can read more about Here and Here.
A Few Ways of Working out on a Trampoline:
The basic bounce, high knees, squats and jumping jacks give you a lower body workout by strengthening your quads, hamstrings and glutes. Your core also benefits.
If you add in dumbbells while bouncing around, you can get in an upper body workout and work your shoulders, triceps and biceps.
Once the cardio part is over, you can get in some ab work on the trampoline (e.g. situps and planks) and even use the side of the trampoline to work the chest by doing pushups.
Check on YouTube for workout ideas. It's not that hard to bounce around and is mighty fun! You can rebound while watching TV and there are cheap models you can buy from big box stores such as Walmart and other fitness stores.
To happy bouncy days ahead,
