Rebounding Weight Loss Workout is another rebounder workout from AngieFitnessTV. Angie has a new workout studio! And this one is very nice! I like it a lot. Angie is also rebounding barefoot. She usually wears shoes. In one of her other rebounder workouts she mentions that she wears shoes because of ankle issues. She doesn’t mention in this workout what motivated her to rebound barefoot but I have something to share along the same lines. I have 12 screws and 2 plates in each heel. So I have a lot of foot issues. I always wear shows for everything–even yoga. Once I started doing rebounder workouts I noticed that a lot of the trainers are barefoot or wearing yoga socks with grips on the soles. That still wasn’t enough to induce me to go barefoot. But then I ungraded to a Bellicon and started watching all of their videos–not just the workouts but their other videos and they tell you to bounce barefoot or in yoga socks to protect the rebounder. Bellicons aren’t cheap so I decided to give it a try. I do want my Bellicon to last. So I purchased some yoga socks and I am able to jump on it no problem with the socks! No foot pain! I am even more sold on rebounding than I was before! In addition to being fun low impact intensity with all kinds of health benefits, it’s good for my feet, too! I only wear the socks when I know the majority of the workout is done on the rebounder. I will never wear the socks for a URX-MT workout because they have you jumping on and off the rebounder but many of Angie’s and Barlates’ rebounder workouts I can wear the socks and all of the Bellicon workouts are appropriate for the socks.
I know I went off topic, but I do think it is important to mention. If you are like me and have had to protect your feet for some reason, try rebounding barefoot or with yoga socks–you might be surprised!
Back to the workout. This is primarily a steady state cardio rebounding workout though Angie includes some bodyweight strength/conditioning work at the very end. The majority of the cardio is very basic bounce moves. She does each move for a minute and she builds on them–you do the move for a minute sans arms then you add the arms for the next minute. I added arm movements to everything so that I could keep the intensity higher. The last 6 minutes of the cardio segment Angie kicks it up a notch with some more advanced rebounder moves. In addition, Angie wore weighted gloves to increase the intensity. I did, too, and it definitely kicked it up a notch. Another fun and effective rebounder workout from Angie! Keep them coming please!
