When muscles are not used, they atrophy – this means they slowly lose their form and shape because the body does not need it anymore.
The inverse of this is when you put strain on your muscles – you tell them, like you would a friend, that you need them. Every day, intensely.
And the more you tell them this, the more they are eager to grow and shape themselves to your every need.
Your muscles are like a plethora of friends. Keeping them feeling needed, and they will be there for you when you actually do need them.
This is a simplified way of looking at how exercise benefits your body, and more specifically, why rebounding is such an effective way to keep all these “friends” happy.
As you have probably already read, rebounding is unique in that it works nearly every muscle in your body without being hard on the joints. Yet, no other part gets as hard a direct workout than your legs, thighs, and glutes.
By rebounding only about fifteen minutes per day (half a Seinfeld show, about 4 songs on the radio) you can create, literally, a life altering change in the way your body responds to every day movement by putting less strain on your heart, and more on your muscles. If you keep them toned and happy, they will literally carry you on a daily basis.
Give and take from your body, and you will live long and healthy!
