Beginner Trampoline Workout with Light Hand Weights is a great introduction to Naomi Joy‘s rebounder workouts. Most of Naomi’s workouts are intermediate or advanced level workouts. This one is definitely easier but still loads of fun. In fact, I used it as a warm up for one of Naomi’s other excellent cardio + strength rebounder workouts: Mini Trampoline Upper Body Sculpt. This workout warmed my upper body up very nicely. Naomi does this workout outside with a colorful mural behind her. It is apparently cold because she is wearing a ski cap and looks very cute. This workout was also filmed at the same time as her other, much more advanced workout: Rebounder HIIT Tabata Workout (they are both set in the same place and she is dressed the same, plus she uploaded them a few days apart).
This workout is done interval style: 40 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of recovery. There is a timer in the lower right hand corner of the screen, counting down the workout time. There is another timer on the left hand side of the screen, counting down your intervals and recoveries. Naomi previews the next move during the recovery. This workout is done voice over. Naomi uses 5 pound dumbbells for the entire workout but, for me, that was too heavy for some of the moves. I always have a step set up beside my rebounder where I set a towel, a bottle of water and any equipment I might need for the workout I am about to do. I had both 3 and 5 pound dumbbells sitting on it. The 10 second recovery you get for each exercise was enough time for me to swap out my dumbbells when necessary. And since Naomi previews each exercise during that recovery, I was able to quickly gauge which weight I would need. For some of the exercises I felt like I probably could have used heavier than 3 pounds but 5 pounds still seems like too much. Luckily, I also own 4 pound weights which I will have on my step the next time I do this workout.
