Rebounding is a cellular exercise. It isn’t just about stimulating muscle fibres to increase muscular strength. Rebounding ensures that every cell in the body has the ability to adjust to external simulations. This includes bone, nerve
, and connective tissue cells
, as well as vital organs
and hormone-producing organs
in the endocrine system.
When you jump up on a trampoline, you experience a greater gravitational force, as you are accelerating vertically. When you come down, you decelerate, and your body feels the combined effects of deceleration and gravity. In that precise moment, it will seem like someone has turned on the Earth’s gravitational pull. The most elastic energy is present when the rebounder’s surface stretches to its lowest point, resulting from the force of your body landing on it. As you push down on the rebounder, all three forces come together on the same plane, and your body experiences a gravitational force three times greater than what is felt on Earth. Your cells can sense gravity, and would know how to adjust to changes in gravity. In fact, they get stronger, as our body doesn’t know the difference between the three forces, and responses to them as if they are each gravity.
