Mini Trampoline Exercise Tips

There are many different mini trampoline exercises that you can do. Just think of the things that you can normally do without one and incorporate it with the trampoline. The following are some fitness mini trampoline routines that you can perform. The exercise benefits of it are similar to other common exercises.

Light Bounce

This is simple. Imagine standing going up on your toes and coming back down. You would be doing the same motion on the mini-trampoline. Your feet should be in contact with the rebounder the whole time. (Another name for the trampoline)

Jog Bounce

Same concept as running only with the rebounder, you would simply be lifting one knee up at a time. It would be more like running in place.

Knee to Chest Jumps

Just like the name says. Basically you jump up in the air while bringing your knees up to your chest. This can be pretty tiring but it's a great workout.

Squats

This is where you would jump on the mini trampoline only this time, when you land, you want to bend you knees all the way down so that your bottom almost touches the trampoline. Then you would extend your legs to jump back up. This is a more advanced leg workout.

Twists

While doing small hops, twist your body gently back and forth by using your arms to help you balance. Be careful not to over do this. A light twist to each side should be fine.

Forward Leaps

In this mini trampoline exercise, you want to start from the ground, jump forward onto the trampoline, then land on the floor in front of you. Afterwards, you would turn around and repeat the process.


Any of these mini trampoline exercises can be done at different levels of difficulty. For instance, you can do these with a small bounce at a slow rate for an easier workout or you can speed up your movements to make it more difficult.

In terms how long you should do these exercise, you typically want to go for about 30-45 minutes a day. You could start off at 5 minutes a day then gradually build up to that if you want. Pick a few exercises that you like to do and do it for about 10 minutes, then switch to the next routine and so on.

Remember to always be aware of your surroundings and make sure there aren't any hazardous things around the mini trampoline like the corner of a table or a ball that may cause you injury if you happen to fall.

As with any exercise regimen that you do, you want to consult your doctor first if you have any concerns with your physical health.
