Trim Your Waistline with a Trampoline Jump!

by Rachelle on May 5, 2015

Have you ever been outside in your backyard, wishing that you could have as much fun as your kids on that trampoline? If you think jumping on a trampoline is child’s play, think again! Trampoline classes are popping up in gyms all over the country.

TrampolineThink about it: this low-impact (it reduces impact by up to 40%) anti-gravity workout is easier on your joints than pavement-pounding. Plus, “trampolining” improves your balance and gets your heart rate up.

So are YOU ready to jump?

Be sure to warm up for 2-3 minutes by jumping up and down, going through fun basic moves to get your blood pumping and prepare your muscles and joints for more intense work. At the end of your warm up, take 2-3 minutes to cool down, jumping lightly and letting your heart rate gradually come down.

For each of these workouts, perform as many as you can within 30 seconds. Then, allow a 30 second cool down period before you begin your next workout.

The Straight Jump

  1. Stand tall with your feet on the trampoline and your arms extended straight above head.
  2. Jump up and hold your body in a straight position with your arms raised.
  3. Land with your body straight, arms straight above head.

Jumping Jacks

  1. Stand tall with your feet on the trampoline and your arms at your sides.
  2. Jump up and point your legs out to either side, keeping them straight, while your arms reach above your head until you clasp your hands at the top.
  3. Land standing with your legs straight and together, in starting position.

The Seat Drop

  1. Stand tall with your hands at your sides.
  2. Jump up in the air, moving your legs forward, then bounce on your butt with your legs straight out in front and your palms down with your fingers pointed toward your toes.
  3. Land standing tall, as in the starting position.

Swivel Hips

  1. Stand tall with your feet on the trampoline and arms at your sides.
  2. Jump up in air, moving your legs forward into a seated position.
  3. After the bounce, perform a half-twist and land facing in the opposite direction.

The Pike Jump

  1. Stand tall with your feet on the trampoline and arms at your sides.
  2. Jump up and point your legs out, keeping them straight and parallel to ground while reaching your arms toward your feet, fingers pointing toward your toes.
  3. Land standing with your legs straight, as at the starting point.

The Tuck Jump

  1. Stand tall with your hands at your sides.
  2. Jump up, pull your knees to your chest and grasp your hands around your knees or ankles.
  3. Land standing tall with your arms extended straight over your head.

Half Twist/ Full Twist

  1. Stand tall with your feet on the trampoline and your arms at your sides.
  2. Jump up and turn in the air, facing the opposite direction for a half-twist, or complete 360-degree rotation for a full twist.
  3. Land with your hands at your sides in a half-twist or a full twist.

Invite your kids to try with you after you complete each one of the workouts, as they may think it’s just as fun!
