Live Blog: JumpSport Fitness Trampoline BOUNCEcamp

JumpSport Trampolines offered their BOUNCEcamp for a second year at FitBloggin’ with Jeff McMullen at the helm. This was a high intensity class where you’re always moving whether you’re on the trampoline or the floor. The class started with a warmup that included walking planks from trampoline to standing, basic bounce on trampoline and a basic run on trampoline. Participants were reminded to keep the core engaged and to bounce down rather than up.


Basic Bounce
Walking Plank
Side Leaps
Candle Stick
Snow Board Jumps
Kneeling Side Plank Tilt (u)
Jump Squats
Torso Teaser
Seated Rotational Twists

Side Lying “C” Curve (unilateral)
Loco Kicks
Side Squat to Balance (unilateral)
Single Leg Squat (u)
Prisoner Squat

This internal training based workout employs the use of the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline and simply body weight. Therefore, participants alternated bouts of a trampoline based exercise and a floor based, body weight exercise. Following the ACSM guidelines for proper work/rest ratios, participants executed 45 seconds of work to 15 seconds of active rest (3:1). Exercises marked with a (u) are unilateral and need to be conducted on each side for full engagement.

At the end of the class, participants wound down with a cool down that stretched all the major muscle groups: shins, calves, hamstrings, quads, chest, back, biceps, triceps and shoulders.
