Reboundology with Kangoo Jumps®
Kangoo Jumps is used for aerobic work out, jogging, running, athletic training, sports strengthening and conditioning. Kangoo Jumps provide an innovative, safe and effective exercise experience, capturing all of the health benefits associated with reboundology.
Kangoo Jumps provide exercise versatility, mobility challenges and the “fun factor” offering a unique form of physical activity for people of all abilities and all ages. Perfect for beginners to excises, children, overweight people, serious athletes and over 50s looking to preserve a healthy and productive life. An exercise program that is interesting, effective and fun is essential for long-term exercise compliance and adherence. With Kangoo Jumps, noticeable benefits are achieved in relatively short exercise sessions, often 20 minutes or less.
Reboundology with Kangoo Jumps®
Kangoo Jumps are especially recommended as an important additional conditioning element known as “plyometrics” which is necessary form of specialized training for sports such as basketball, hockey, rugby and soccer which require quick footwork and speedy muscle recruitment for powerful actions such as kicking, jumping and sprinting.
Until recently, the primary apparatus for rebounding has been either the garden trampoline or the mini-trampoline, known as the rebounder. Unfortunately the large trampoline has been the source of numerous spinal injuries due to improper use. The main drawback of the mini-trampoline has been its limited exercise application. Nevertheless it is the repeated rebounding experience that provides very unique and important physiological adaptations. These adaptations can be achieved on Kangoo Jumps.
To briefly explain the rebounding physiological adaptations it is important to appreciate that the human body comprises a community of cells. When rebounding, the three forces of acceleration, deceleration and gravity all work in the vertical plane. The musculoskeletal system must resist these forces causing increased contractions and therefore increasing postural muscle toning. Traditionally, aerobic exercise often has been associated with upper extremity muscle atrophy due to the fact that there is minimal, or no muscular activity stressing the upper body. Rebounding in Kangoo Jumps however maximizes muscular contraction throughout the entire body causing a complete “cellular workout” while performing even the simplest exercise routine.
Rebounding Reboundology with Kangoo Jumps® provides improvements in overall cellular health, and increases immune function. The rebound exercise principle benefits the spine, the nervous, lymphatic and circulatory systems.
Rebounding also stimulates bone-rebuilding activity in the vertebral bodies in particular the weight-bearing bony structures of the pelvis and lower extremities. The net effect of the repeated vertical loading assists in the prevention of osteoporosis, especially in women.
Due to the unique design of Kangoo Jumps proper posture is automatically achieved as the user is challenged to maintain balance and co-ordination while exercising. Kangoo Jumps stimulates the joint and muscle proprioreptors, which in turn facilitates the postural reflex and so activates a dynamic postural response.
Pronation and supination are greatly reduced due to the fact that foot placement is dynamically influenced by the design of the boot and the balance challenge which forces the user into a conscious gait pattern. Within the exercise regimen, spinal strengthening, optimum postural positioning of the spinal curves, balance, co-ordination, flexibility and intervertebral disc health improves without compromise because of the minimal impact shock through the “impact protection system”.
Kangoo Jumps are cutting edge solutions for comprehensive conditioning of athletes in sports. Kangoo Jumps are also used in rehabilitation and are well respected by preferred health practitioners such as Physiotherapists, Biokineticists, Chiropractors, and medical Doctors. In these applications therapists find Kangoo Jumps safe and effective. The greatest advantage of Kangoo Jumps is that they are easy to adjust to and FUN to use! Reboundology with Kangoo Jumps®
