Movement YES – But why Rebounding?

Movement YES – But why Rebounding?

In this video you learn WHY your body needs Movement – How many minutes per day is the absolute minimum for your body to function  and Why Rebounding is such a great movement for your body.

This is Episode #11 of “All you ever wanted to know about Rebounding”

The Theme of today is MOVEMENT

That’s what you learn today:

  1. Why our physical body needs MOVEMENT
  2. Why Rebounding is a great way to get it Movin’


There is a great book  called “Bewegung”  – which means movement in German – written by  Joerg Blech  a well known author of  medical articles in major German newspapers.  In this book he presents cutting edge scientific information in the field of body health and physical movement. Here an extract of this book (translated by Sylvia from German into English):

Why our physical body needs MOVEMENT

MD of Evolutionary Medicine, Frank Booth retraces most diseases of the civilized world back to a stagnation in our metabolism due to physical  inactivity. As a minimum requirement of daily movement he and other researchers see 30 minutes of moderate movement during  at least 5 days per week. As “” inactive” they define everything  that is below these 30 minutes.  “Without this minimum of physical activity “, says Booth,”it is likely that a pathological gene expression leads to chronic diseases. (Frank Booth: Waging war on physical inactivity: using modern  molecular ammunition against an acient enemy.  In J Appl  Physiol, 2002, 93 page 3 – 30)

That means: The body of everybody who does not exercise at least half an hour per day   is in a state of emergency.  In the cells and in the tissues run permanently sickening  processes and it seems to be only a matter of time before they turn into a disease.

Consequently, the old  concept in regards to physical activity has to be thought over: Movement is not at all a useful “add-on” to strengthen our health. In the contrary, it is the condition for a normal functioning of a human body.


Why Rebounding is a great way to move your body?

We need an up and down movement for many bodily functions

Two significant ones are:

  1. Our lymphatic System
  2. Our cartilage

Jogging would be a great way to get this movement. But it has the downside of a 100% impact on the joints. High elastic Rebounders like the Bellicon bungee band Rebounders take most of the jarring effect out of the movement and leave you with only 15%.


Next time we look at

How often and how long you should bounce and we will look at what all of you have written in that blog.

    Thank you for this in depth information. I’m happy to learn that it is possible to nourish and rebuild cartilage with rebounding! Also I could feel that there seemed to be something important about calf movement, but I didn’t know that the calves are a pump for the lymph system. Often when stretching I naturally point and flex my feet pumping my calves – now I know why.

    Excellent information, thank you. I will increase my bouncing to get at least the 30 mins. 5 times per week.

    Hi Sylvia,
    Thanks for your presentation today and the notes available to reread. I appreciate your enthusiasm and interest in our health. I like the information presented on the lymph system and am looking forward to hearing about whether to rebound 30 minutes straight or break it up in the day. Blessings Sylvia. Linda

    Thanks again Sylvia for another very useful presentation of information and inspiration for exercise and rebounding. It is great to have someone like you who is making these studies and the efforts to bring this information forward. Please keep up the great work!
    Also, I did find this researcher; Jorg Blech on – He has an book on these concepts available in English. It is called “Healing through Exercise: Scientifically-Proven Ways to Prevent and Overcome Illness and Lengthen Your Life” I scanned the chapter titles – looks like good reading…
    See you next week!

      Hi Jamie,
      That’s great that you found that book from Joerg Blech. I looked more in detail into it and found out that it is the TRANSLATION into English of the one I read you from. Finally, this great book has been translated. I am very happy. For many years it only existed in German. Now you can buy it and correct my English translation errors! :-) Thanks again for finding the book! Sylvia

    Hi Sylvia,
    Great topic. It’s so interesting and motivating to understand what we are doing for our bodies as we exercise and specifically the benefits of rebounding. I had read before a cursory explanation about the lymph system and the effects of rebounding, but I had no idea we had twice as much lymph fluid as blood…greatly appreciate all the info…thanks for explaining.

    Very well done and interesting lesson, I have never heard such an understandable explaination of the lymphatic system and how it works. It really makes you want to rebound more, once you realize how great it is for your body. I used to enjoy jogging but the impact on the body left me sore and injured sometimes, the bellicon bungy rebounder is like bouncing on air, and even after a vigouous workout, you feel great.
    Thanks Sylvia!

    Rebounding has opened a whole new world for me as I am aging. I have more energy and feel my lymphatic system is improving. (as I have a problem with swelling) It’s better than any prescription!! I know I need to increase the time, as I only spend time in am or pm..about 30 minutes every other day. I will make it a goal to rebound daily. am and pm

    Thanks so much for your expertise. Loved your article today!! makes all the sense in the world!!
