Claire Francis of San Fran Fitness has created a series of 21 workouts. Each workout contains 21 moves. Some of the workouts are done on the rebounder and some of them are not. I am only doing the workouts that are done on the rebounder. I am not doing them in the order they were created. Since they are all around 25 minutes, I decided to combine some of them to create longer workouts and use them as morning workouts. This morning I combined her two rebounder cardio arm workouts; this workout, Day 10, Bounce Fit Arms, and Day 14, Weighted Arms. I did the same thing last week with Day 9, Bounce Fit Abs + Day 13, Weighted Abs then on another day I combined Day 12, Weighted Legs, + Day 8, Bounce Fit Legs. Those combinations kicked my butt. This combination was much more doable. It still gave me a very intense cardio workout but nothing like the abs and legs combos. In fact, this workout, Bounce Fit Arms, was much more intense than Day 14 Weighted Arms. I did not expect that. This workout is actually a very intense little cardio workout on its own. I suggest either doing it on its own for a shorter cardio workout or combining it with something less intense like I did this morning. According to my FitBit, between the 2 workouts I burned 510 calories and spent 22 minutes in my peak heart rate zone.
All of the Series 21 workouts are made up of one circuit of 7 moves that is done 3 times, so 21 moves. Each exercise is done for one minute. There is a timer in the lower left hand side of the screen counting down each minute. You get a 10 second recovery between exercises. Though I never experienced any arm burn out, this workout did work my arms nicely.
Series 21 Day 10, Bounce Fit Arms is 25:55 minutes; no warm up or stretch. I used Ripped with Ripkins‘ Best Rebounder Warm Up & Stretch before the workout and at the end I used Naomi Joy‘s Standing Cool Down Stretch. Most of that stretch can be done on your rebounder if you have a balance bar/T bar.
