All You Gotta Do is Jump!
Jumping on a trampoline may be dismissed as just another fun activity for kids, but it is actually a great form of exercise that is proven to have many health benefits. Perhaps this is the reason why so many people choose to purchase one for their apartments at G Residen, Seni Mont Kiara or Pantai Hillpark. So why should you be left behind? Check out these properties at Edgeprop made available all over Malaysia.
The simple act of jumping due to gravitational forces stimulates every cell in your body, as well as activates all your muscles to flex and relax, thus toning your entire muscular system. Moreover, bouncing on a trampoline uses up a combination of kinetic, potential and elastic potential energy in order for us to experience a state of weightlessness. Therefore, the higher you jump, the greater gravitational force is exerted through acceleration and deceleration.
Promotes the Growth of Healthy Bones
Working in front of our screens at our offices, and lying on the couch at our apartments in G Residence Kuchai Lama, Seni Mont Kiara for rent and Pantai Hillpark condo without any real exercise can really impact our bones and muscles.
However, did you know that bouncing on trampolines is really good for your bones? Regular trampoline exercises aids in maintaining bone mass and preventing brittle bones and fractures. Moreover, it also helps to prevent the spreading of osteoporosis, an intense condition that occurs when old bones are broken down at a faster rate than can be replaced.
This results in extremely weak bones that are prone to breaking even with minimal movements. Trampoline exercises however, allows your bones and muscles to become stronger with each jump as they work against gravity, without the added stress on your joints, and improving bone minerals in the process.
Improves Lymphatic Flow
The lymphatic system is a network of organs, tissues and vessels responsible for carrying a clear fluid known as lymph towards the heart. It also helps get rid of toxins and waste from the body. However, the lymphatic system relies on the deliberate movement of our body to work as a pump, and trampoline jumping causes its valves to open and close simultaneously therefore increasing rate of lymph flow by nearly 15%. Improved circulation can also further aid in weight loss.
Improves Posture & Balance
Poor posture is a common problem among today’s generation due to the advancement in technology, caused by leaning in front of our computers and laptops, or slouching to see our mobile phones. However, this issue can be resolved thanks to trampoline exercises.
This is because, bouncing can help improve our balance, posture and coordination simultaneously through stimulation of the inner ear canal, responsible for sending information regarding balance and head position to the brain. Moreover, it also activates the ocular nerve which is responsible for transmitting information from our eyes to the brain. Over time, it can also help in the realignment of the spine, thus eliminating signs of back, neck and joint pain.
Reduces Body Fat
Trampolines are also a great way to lose weight and stay fit. This is because jumping is known to increase your metabolism rate and burn off excessive calories, thus helping to keep your weight in check. Furthermore, trampoline jumps makes the thigh, leg, arms and hips muscles firm, thus increasing agility, and improving balance as well as promoting fat loss as a result.
Increases Oxygen Intake
Oxygen is the most important element that we need to survive. A research study done by NASA shows how jumping increases cellular oxygenation by helping to circulate oxygen throughout the body and increases energy as a result. Jumping on a trampoline therefore increases your lung capacity, and thus, helps to make your body inhospitable to anaerobic germs and diseases as they cannot survive in a highly oxygenated environment. In this way, it also makes your body insusceptible to the common cold and flu, among other diseases.
With so many health benefits for the entire body, trampolines are not just one of the best forms of exercises out there, but are also one of the easiest, and thus suitable for any age group. There are many forms of trampolines out there, that you can purchase according to your needs. Browse through our list of options to find the perfect one for you!
