Remember all the fun you had as a kid jumping on your parents’ bed or maybe your neighbors’ trampoline? All the giggles shared and the attempted somersaults? Many of us first fall in love with trampolines as children, but did you know that a trampoline workout can benefit adults just as much as the joy they bring to the littles in our lives? Not only is all that jumping fun, a trampoline workout, also known as rebounding, has many great health benefits — particularly for your lymphatic system.
The lymphatic system is an essential to our immune system that helps eliminate toxins and waste from the body. You can think of it as your personal trash man! When our immune system is working properly, we don’t even notice it. But when we have an under- or over-active immune system, we are at a greater risk of developing infections and other health conditions.
Our lymphatics are responsible for transporting waste and toxins out of the tissues back to the bloodstream and regulating the immune response as a local communication method within the tissues. Your lymphatic system creates an essential link for the immune cells to both monitor and respond to signals to increase or decrease immune and inflammatory responses. This also helps protect the body from threats like infections, bacteria and cancer while balancing fluid levels.
When the lymphatic system is not working, a lot of things can go wrong. Since it’s so important for immune function, a sluggish lymphatic system can make you more susceptible to various infections including:
Swelling in lymph nodes (armpits, throat or groin)
Muscle aches and pains
Sore throats and getting colds more frequently
With just 15-20 minutes a day, using a rebounder, you can burn calories, gain muscle strength, and enhance your balance all while improving your immune system. A trampoline workout can also strengthen your body while detoxifying plus, it’s a low-impact exercise option that’s very easy on the joints. Rebounding also strengthens cells and improves cardiovascular development; improves the lymph flow which in turn improves your immune system; helps with balance and builds physical strength as well as muscular development.
While you may think the type of large trampolines you jumped on as a kid may be a bit much, a rebounder can fit right in your living room and are easy to store making it easy for you to "take out the trash" and have a stronger immune system to support your wellness journey.
