mini trampoline

Postby think - thin » Sun Dec 28, 2008 4:25 pm

I brought a mini trampoline today :D Always wanted one !!! so proud I actually went out and brought one in preparation of my diet.

Was wondering if it actually does any good to weight loss? I gather it works your legs out yeah ? but what else?

The continual bouncing on a mini tramp is a fantastic cardiovascular workout, so not only are you aiding weightloss you are also helping organs such as heart and lungs. I also have a mini tramp and i have a 30 min workout on a dvd to go with it, and boy does it get the heart rate up and my breathing rate up as well. I was just saying the other day i needed to get it out again... I had old runners that hurt my calf muscles but i have new ones now so i think i'll get it out again and give it a bounce....

Let me know how you like it!!

I got my tramp as part of a pack... It came with the tramp, a yoga mat and gym ball plus a dvd that has a half hour workout for each piece of equipment. It was from Kmart and was reduced to $35 (yes $35 for all of that) its the best bargain i've ever ever come across.

That sounds like a brilliant deal, Ally. What's the DVD like?
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

I love the idea of a mini-tramp, but it's a bad idea in a small cluttered room like I have! I Googled injuries on mini-tramps before making a decision of whether to buy one or not (yes, I'm really that paranoid!). For anyone considering getting one, avoid the really cheap ones because if the springs break you can end up with lower limb injuries when you hit the ground with force. And you can really hurt yourself if you lose your balance and bounce off into a table or something so be very careful while using them and make sure you have a big, clear space to bounce in.

That said, they're great to reduce impact on your feet while exercising. And I imagine that if you stick to small bounces and running on the spot you can reduce risk of injury.

Let us know how you get on with your mini-tramp, Think-Thin!

Still using it, but like I explained in my progress thread havnt been doing much lately. But I got onto u tube the other day and got some fantastic ideas on what to do on it. Its def the best work out for me. I get really bored with the bike, walking etc... So come tommorrow I will use it again if I dont go for my extra walk at lunch time.

:lol: I got to admit, I often think, my god I could hurt myself if I fall off or dont balance right.
