There is no need to worry about your elbows or knees digging in; the rebounder acts as a soft cushioning and provides support for your lower back.This is why rebound training is not just great fun for young people, but also good exercise for seniors who are looking to improve their balance and strengthen their muscles without putting too much pressure on their knees.
The Tabata method – 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off – was developed by Japanese sports scientist Izumi Tabata, who found that doing short bursts of high-intensity exercises improves one’s anaerobic capacity and aerobic power.
