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.
Snow Board Jumps
Kneeling Side Plank Tilt (u)
Seated Rotational Twists
Side Lying “C” Curve (unilateral)
Side Squat to Balance (unilateral)
Single Leg Squat (u)
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.
