Hey, everybody, I started my rebounding yesterday, and, boy, is it fun! I'm being careful, as the instructions advise, not to overdo it. I'm just doing the "health bounce" right now, with my feet not leaving the mat. I'm not even using the stabilizer bar because I don't need it. I even got my husband on it, but he started to hurt in his calves within about a minute. I bounced a lot, several times yesterday, and didn't feel a thing. (Guess walking on the treadmill 3-4 times a week has prepared me for this.)
I have it set up in the den, so as I thought about it, I would just jump on it for a few minutes instead of sitting on the couch while watching TV.
Anyway, I just wanted to express my gratitude to those who raved about their rebounders. I think I'm going to love this new exercise. I wonder if there's any scientific evidence for the claims that this cleans out your lymphatic system and removes dead matter from between the joints. No matter; I'm going to do this anyway because I feel so good afterwards. I already feel stronger in the legs.
I love this message board!
