I have previously mentioned this in a previous post, but this time around Im seriously looking into purchasing a trampoline.
I have visited the trampoline park a few times and had a blast of a time. I don't live near a trampoline park so Im looking to invest in one for home.
So apparently according to NASA studies jumping on the trampoline is similar to running for 30 minutes. Obviously the jumping involves a lot less impact. Other benefits such as increase in agility and co-ordination, the need for core strength and apparently the time spent in a weightless environment improves your immune system.
I think I am on to something here, although I feel a little silly buying a trampoline so a 30 year old man can jump on it.
Im thinking of using its twice a week for 30 to 45 minutes twice a week in conjunction with my weight lifting. My goals are general increase in strength and increase in general athleticism. I would like to work up to doing some basic somersaults and back flips.
Anyone else here that uses a trampoline routinely? Do you guys think I am onto something?
Any advice/tips on purchasing a trampoline in terms of size, shape and any thoughts on spring vs springless systems?
