Naomi Joy Fitness: Trampoline Workout/ Rebounder Workout With Weights/ LEG DAY WORKOUT

Rebounder Workout with Weights / Leg Day Workout is serious leg and butt burner workout from Naomi Joy. She hits your lower body with all modalities in this workout. Weighed strength work, body weight strength work, mat work and (of course) all varieties of squat jumps. My lower body is still burning! Plus, since this is a strength workout with rebounder cardio bursts your heart rate gets pretty elevated. What an excellent and thorough lower body cardio + strength workout! Metabolic training at its best. Naomi packs a lot into 43 minutes. She finishes this workout off with mat work using ankle weights. First you do some bridges, starting with that intense version she introduced in her Rebounder Recovery/Yoga & Pilates Fusion Workout. You are squeezing a yoga block between your thighs as you do bridge pulses. It is hard work for me to keep squeezing that yoga block the entire interval–but that is what manages to engage every muscle in your thighs and glutes. After you finish the bridge variations, you do traditional mat work on the rebounder. 4 solid minutes each leg with zero breaks. At least Naomi did not take a break. She is a machine! I had to take several breaks to thaw my legs out. And she was wearing 3 pound ankle weights! I was only wearing 2 pound ankle weights and I am seriously considering dropping to my one pound ankle weights (nor maybe no ankle weights?) the next time I do this workout. Thankfully, Naomi gave us a nice deep stretch for your lower body at the end.

This workout is done circuit style. There are 6 circuits. The first 4 circuits each contain 2 strength and 1 rebounder squat jump exercise. Each exercise is done for 60 seconds followed by a 15-20 second recovery. The last 2 circuits are different and the interval times/recoveries are detailed in the break down below. There is a timer in the lower right hand corner of the screen counting down the workout time (not including the stretch). There is another timer in the upper right hand corner of the screen counting down your intervals and recoveries. During the recovery Naomi previews the next move. This workout is done voice over and set to motivating music.

The warm up starts on the floor then moves to the rebounder. When it moves to the rebounder, the exercises are not some of Naomi’s more intense rebounder exercises but they are still exercises that frequently appear in her regular workouts. So I have started the breakdown before the warm up is over. This workout is set in a park with sail boats on the water behind Naomi and a city scape behind that. As you workout with Naomi, lots of boats drift by, people are out biking and walking their dogs, there are even some geese or ducks. I notice all this because some of the exercises were burning out my lower body so badly I had to focus on something!

Rebounder Workout with Weights / Leg Day Workout is 43:49 minutes; 50 second intro, 5:30 minute warm up and 5 minute stretch. The warm up starts on the ground then moves to the rebounder.

  1. What a great idea to use a yoga block for extra muscle engagement! That is something I will keep in mind when doing quick-transition workouts where taking a booty band on and off is a hassle.

    1. It does amaze me. I think with all of Caroline’s glute workouts I do that just the addition of a yoga block would not change the exercise so much for me–but it does! Between Naomi and Caroline my lower body gets well worked. Not just Naomi’s yoga block bridges, but I do her rebounder cardio workouts 4+ times a week and she still burns my lower body out with squat jumps.
