Trampolines: An Exercise Opportunity

One of the best parts about trampolining is that it’s a low-impact exercise but still provides a great workout! That means you can stay safe while also having fun and seeing results. It may come as a surprise, but trampoline workouts target several different muscle groups, giving you an overall body workout in just one session. 

What Muscles Do I Work Out When Jumping on a Trampoline?

The calves, quads, and hamstrings are all engaged as you jump up and down on the trampoline. This helps to improve muscle strength and endurance in your legs while also helping to reduce any stiffness or soreness. Your glutes and core muscles are also used when you hop around, strengthening these muscles and improving your posture. 

Your arms are also worked as you use them to help regulate your balance while jumping, and if you add hand weights, this increases the intensity of the workout. Your back muscles work hard when landing and taking off from each jump – just make sure to keep your core engaged while doing so to avoid any potential strains.

Abdominal muscles are also engaged when jumping up and down. As you coil your body up to jump, you contract and release your core muscles. On every jump, you flex and release your core muscles. The more you jump, the more toned and defined your core muscles can become without the need for the strain or impact of crunches or sit-ups. 

Another major muscle that is worked out when jumping on a trampoline is the heart! As you work out or jump for fun, you’re strengthening your cardiovascular system, which pumps blood through your body. Jumping on a trampoline is a great cardio workout that helps to strengthen your heart in a fun, low-impact way. Additionally, jumping can help reduce blood pooling in your veins to prevent chronic edema. With proper blood flow, you are also better equipped to fight off infections.
