Jump, Jump | Trampoline Impromptu Workout

The Easter Bunny was soooo generous this year… Miss I. got a trampoline and ever since we’ve got a problem to take her inside. She jumps on the trampoline a lot, and even she’s only 3, she “invented” her own jumping routine and exercises like walk on moon, the giant’s jump, the ball jump, the scissors and so on. She has lots of fun.

This morning, after a stormy night, I climbed the trampoline to wipe the water that was left on it, so Miss I. can proceed with jumping. Well… little I knew then that I’ll be spending around 20 – 25 minutes jumping on the trampoline… It was like returning to being a kid, freeing myself of everything, forgetting that I need to prepare the breakfast, forgetting pretty much about everything.

And I loved the feeling!

I am new to trampoline workouts, so basically what I did in those 20 – 25 minutes is jumping my heart out in HIIT style – 45ย seconds on, 15 seconds active rest (jumping boxer shuffle or jumping light). I’ve repeated the following sequence 3 times. By the end of the impromptu workout I was exhausted. I am wondering how effective my workout was, and I wish I had my Polar FT4 heart monitor with me… Well… next time I will make sure I will.

So if you have a trampoline in the back yard, please do use it! Don’t wait like me, because you’ll regret it later! ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have some other trampoline exercises you love or you’d recommend me to try?

Rainy Day

We’re on a short vacation in the mountains, and the rainy weather that swept across the country finally reached us here. It’s pouring rain, the wind is blowing really strong; not very appealing to leave the hotel. So given this weather conditions, all three of us are hitting the gym, the massage room and the pool, some SPA treatments for me… My husband is really proud of his little girl and the kind of workouts she does. Well, as I always say, there’s no age limit to working out. You just need to adjust it to your age.
