The Perfect Exercise for Warriors

8 replies
Hi Guys,

I thought I'd post this article from my blog here since one of my personal challenges as I set up online businesses is making sure to get enough exercise. Luckily I've found a way to do it in just about 30 minutes a day.

Study after study tells us that the one of the most important things in staying vibrant is to keep (or get) the body moving.
For example:
  • Investigators at Harvard studied 72,000 female nurses aged 40 to 65 years over an eight-year period and found that sedentary women had substantially higher rates of coronary events (death and nonfatal heart attacks) than women who were active.
  • An article published in 1996 in Scientific American estimated that only about two percent of cancer deaths in the United States are caused by pollution - and that more cancer is caused by lack of exercise.
In my experience, when it comes to staying active to maintain and improve health, the simplest activities are the most powerful.

First there is walking, which is one of the most beneficial exercises we can do on a daily basis. Consider that researchers have found that walking three to four hours a week reduced the risk of coronary events by 30 to 40 percent!!! It's so simple and easy and can be done anywhere, even in your living room if you have a treadmill.

Another simple exercise is something that I love - yoga. The thing about yoga is that you don't need any special equipment to stretch and strengthen every muscle of your body. Plus a good yoga practice will take you through a wide variety of physical motions that increase your flexibility and resistance to injury. This is not to mention the mental, psychological and spiritual benefits that come from practicing his ancient art.
I could go on and on about yoga and the way it makes you feel, look and act more like one of those flexible, strong monkeys at my local monkey park (I live in Bali), but in the rest of this report I want to write about what some people call the world's ultimate exercise: rebounding.

The world's ultimate exercise: rebounding

Rebounding or jumping on a mini trampoline is an exercise that:

• reduces your body fat
• firms your legs, thighs, abdomen, arms, and hips
• increases your agility
• improves your sense of balance
• strengthens your muscles over all
• provides an aerobic effect for your heart
• rejuvenates your body when it's tired, and
• generally puts you in a state of health and fitness

Health advocates praise the practice:

Albert E. Carter writes that:

"Rebound exercise is the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man." The Miracles of Rebound Exercise, Albert E. Carter

Proponent of rebounding and author of "Jumping for Health," Dr. Morton Walker agrees:

"Jumping on the mini-trampoline is the ultimate aerobic exercise able to be performed anywhere, even in hotel rooms with a carryon, foldable-type rebounding device."

And N.A.S.A. uses rebounding in its astronaut training programs because it gets results:

"...for similar levels of heart rate and oxygen consumption, the magnitude of the biomechanical stimuli is greater with jumping on a rebounder trampoline than with running..." N.A.S.A., Journal of Applied Physiology 49(5): 881-887

In addition to all these benefits, rebounding is fun and easy. I rebound for about 30 minutes a day and I feel that I get a better workout than if I run for an hour or lift weights for 2.

There's lots of great information on rebounding out there. I've had a look at most of it. I'm happy to give you my recommendations for resources and for quality equipment. Just leave a note here or PM me.

        Yeah, rebounding is a great exercise.

        Anyone else here tried jumping around on a trampoline lately? I have and it knocks the stuffing out of you in short order. Great for your internal organs to jiggle around a bit too.

        BTW Tony Robbins likes this form of exercise FYI.

        That's it. I'm heading out the door right now to get me a mini-tramp. No procrastination here. No sir.

        Let's bounce!

          This is very useful to me because I don't have much time to go outdoor.

    We bought a mini trampoline a few months ago and have been rebounding. I have to say it is the best exercise ever! I actually look forward to it every morning.
