What a wonderful day! After a full week of back pain limiting me, I returned this morning to a normal workout (for me). In fact, this is the workout I had scheduled for last Saturday that my back put an abrupt stop to. But after being able to rebound for an hour yesterday and do some dumbbell strength work the day before that, I decided it was time to see if I could return to my normal workouts. Rebounder Workout with Weights (Strength + Cardio Circuit) Mini Trampoline Workout is cardio + strength workout from Naomi Joy that uses the rebounder for many of the exercises–but not all. All of the cardio is done on the rebounder, all of the core work is done on the rebounder and even some of the strength work uses the rebounder. But some of the strength work is done on floor using only dumbbells. To protect my back, I did lift lighter dumbbells than I normally would so I did not find this workout as intense as I normally find Naomi’s cardio + strength workouts, but that is entirely on me. And that’s okay! I am still listing the weights I used below because I return to all of Naomi’s workouts. When I do this workout again, I need to know what I used so I can increase the weight of my dumbbells (I will also update my weights at that time–again, for my own future reference). I also did the bent over rear delt flys sitting on the rebounder frame. I am still too nervous to do any exercises that require bending over from a standing position! But I still got a great workout and it felt so good to be working out at (close) to my regular level. I got a great metabolic full body strength workout this morning. And Naomi ended it with a thorough, feel good stretch. Another winner!
All of the exercises are done interval style. For Circuits 1-5, each exercise is done for 45 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds of recovery. There is a timer in the lower right hand corner of the screen counting down your intervals and recoveries. There is another timer in the upper right hand corner of the screen counting down the entire workout time minus the stretch. During the recoveries Naomi previews the next exercise. During Circuit 6, each exercise is done for 20 seconds with no rest/recoveries. When there is approximately 5 seconds left of an exercise a video appears in the upper hand side of the screen previewing the next exercise. For Circuit 7, the core circuit, each exercise is done for 45 seconds of work followed by 5 seconds of recovery. Naomi previews the next exercise during the recovery. This workout is set to music with Naomi doing voice overs to point out proper form. Naomi also shows modifications for some of the exercises.
***3/24/23 Update: I just returned to this workout and updated the weights below. So the weights below are what I used today–not when I did this workout a year ago. I did all of the exercises without any of the modifications I had to do a year ago due to my back. This workout was tougher than I remembered, especially Circuit 4. That was a burner! By Circuit 6 my legs were feeling very heavy. Tougher than I remembered it and still an excellent workout!***
Rebounder Workout with Weights (Strength + Cardio Circuit) Mini Trampoline Workout is 50:41 minutes; the warm up is just under 5 minutes and 6 minute stretch. Equipment: rebounder and dumbbells. Naomi is using 10 and 20 pound dumbbells. The weights listed below are what I used. If the break down doesn’t specify, I noted by “(floor)” or “(rebounder)” to indicate whether the exercise is done entirely on the floor or entirely on the rebounder.

Yay for being (mostly) back to normal!! 😁🧘♀️
Today I did a 45 min Cardio/ab routine from nobadaddiction. I love their cardio workouts because they are challenging but doable without having to take extra breaks. And they throw in moves that are new to me which is saying something because I exercise so much. She did a cat/cow bear which makes bear planks much harder!
I followed it up with a quick 10 min UB strength routine from Caroline. She does such a great job packing a lot in a short period of time.
We are hosting a golden retriever named Beau for the evening. Ajax, our Ridgeback, is kind of nonplussed by beau. The real test will be when Ajax wants to go to bed. There isn’t room for 2 dogs on his bed so I will probably have to lay out a blanket. 🐕☺️
What does “hosting” mean? Fostering? We wish we could pet sit for my family but our geriatric dog is such a b*tch we cannot have other animals around her.
It just means we are watching the dog for a little while. Clearly this doggie is allowed on furniture so I just hope our dog doesn’t see it and get ideas …
Ajax, our dog, is just laying in the sun like he normally does. He’s not a very good play buddy sometimes. 🤨
I’m so glad you are feeling better!
This was a great workout. I’m grateful for your reviews because it has helped me find some great instructors besides Cathe, KCM and Jessica Smith. Glad to hear your back is better. I had a spasm in mine on February 3rd lasted about 3/4 days. Not sure what caused it so now I’m fearful of it happening again. It seized up going to sit on a chair. It’s painful and scary.
Isn’t weird? I have no clue what thew my back out. I literally bent over to pick something up and ended up on my knees! I would say it was age, but my back problems were severe when I was in my 20s. Working out every day is what cured me–for about a decade. Now it has returned. It goes out for no reason about once a year. So frustrating and unpredictable.
I am so glad this blog helps other people. There are some great trainers out there!
