What is Rebounding?
If you're looking for an activity to ease into that doesn't require a huge investment, gym membership, time, or even that you leave your own home, consider rebounding. What's rebounding? Well, you've probably seen it before and didn't even know it. This craze first appeared in the 70's; a rebounder is a small trampoline and rebounding is a series of exercises performed on it. Rebounding is very low impact and puts almost no stress on your joints. That's great if you have an ailment that prevents participation in high impact exercises, or if you've dropped out of an exercise routine before because of soreness.
A rebounder doesn't take up much space and is very easy to do at home, even in front of the TV (if you must). It's easy to get a rebounding session done in the morning or evening and it is surprisingly effective. Honestly, it's also pretty fun. NASA has even adopted it as part of their training regime, citing that, "for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a trampoline than with running, a finding that might help identify acceleration parameters needed for the design of remedial procedures to avert deconditioning in persons exposed to weightlessness."
