Mini Trampoline Exercises: Bounce
The First Type of Training: Bouncing
You Can’t Go Wrong
Relax – of course it is beneficial and worthwhile to have a physical therapist or personal trainer to guide you in your fitness program.
But children show us again and again how easy it is to get started on the bellicon. Just get on and bounce gently. Keep both feet on
the mat at first. Relax your arms and – enjoy!
Bouncing is most effective with bare feet. This forces muscles in feet and ankles to do their part, too, instead of just being along for the ride. It does demand more of you when you first start using the bellicon, but don’t worry – in no time you will master it. If you have trouble bouncing barefoot, you can always start out with shoes. This is far better than not bouncing at all!
Put It Where You’ll See It
It’s easy to forget to exercise. We all lead busy lives and have a lot on our minds. Therefore, we encourage you put your bellicon somewhere where you will see it. This will remind you to take a fitness break. And when you do, bouncing for even a few minutes will leave you feeling more relaxed and energetic.
Relax Your Shoulders
When it comes to posture, most people do not take good care of their shoulder muscles. They pull them upward, which tenses them up. This tension is a hindrance to good circulation in muscle tissues, which can lead to neck pain and headaches. When bouncing on the bellicon, just let your shoulder muscles relax. That will feel great!
Push Your Heels into the Mat
When bouncing, try to push your heels into the mat. This stretches your Achilles tendon in a gentle way, and helps improve your balance. Women will find it a good way to counteract the effects of wearing high heels.
It’s Even Better with Music
Bouncing on the bellicon is indeed uniquely pleasant, but even more so when you exercise to your favorite music. No matter what the genre, music works wonders and makes the time fly by. It can lift your mood and improve your overall outlook on life. Check out our bellion music library. If motion pictures are more to your liking, you can enjoy bouncing while watching TV or a DVD.
Support Hand Bars Provide Additional Safety
If your legs cannot fully support you, or if balance is an issue, it’s a good idea to have something to hold onto – at least at first – when starting out with the bellicon. One way to do this is to place the bellicon next to a wall and use the wall to brace yourself. An even better way is to use one or two of our optional exercise hand bars. These can be mounted on your bellicon in order to provide you with added safety and peace of mind.
