Just how efficient is Rebounding? Read these studies:

NASA studies Rebounding

1. The external work output at equivalent levels of oxygen uptake were significantly greater while trampolining compared to running.
The greatest difference was about 68%.


68%!
In laymans terms that means that Rebounding is almost 70% more efficient than running. Rebounding makes your body work harder biomechanically using less energy, meaning less oxygen used and less demand put on the heart.

2. While trampolining, as long as the G-force remained below 4-Gs, the ratio of oxygen consumption compared to biomechanical conditoning was sometimes more than twice as efficient as treadmill running.

Twice as efficient! How much better does that get?
And since you can only develop a G force of 3.24 Gs on a Rebounder, any exercise performed on a unit is more efficient than treadmill running at any speed.


Do you know who Dr. Cooper is?
He's the man who introduced the word "aerobics" and started the whole fitness craze in the mid-seventies.
His institute did a study for Al Carter back in 1981 on Rebounding and these are the results of their research:


Dr. Kenneth Coopers Institute of Aerobics Research Studies Rebounding

The Institute of Aerobics Research Study
NEW SUPER CIRCUIT PROGRAM
conditions the whole body for endurance, strength and flexibility.


These findings will have significant impact at every level of physical conditioning, whether it
be high school, college, professional team, sports medicine, or fitness programs.

Super Circuit will move participants through their conditioning program faster, with greater overall conditioning effectiveness.
And, it will provide much of the needed aerobic conditioning for their particular sports without subjecting their bodies to lifting very heavy weights or jogging great distances in a running program.

These Super Circuit aerobic results are the highest ever reported in circuit weight training scientific literature, but the Super Circuit has other advantages too.
There is less skeletal shock and joint stress. Plus strength gains showed a 25% improvement over the standard circuit weight training!

A 25% improvement is significant when you consider that all they did was have the participants of the study program bounce for 30 seconds in between circuit weight training stations.
They did not even use the Rebounder to it's full extent or train exclusively on the unit.

Rebounding makes it possible to train for strength and aerobics in one combining exercise, and it is ideal for anyone who wants both without sacrificing one for the other.
