15 Min Easy Trampoline Cardio | Low-Impact | Park Workout is a rebounder workout from Dustin Ripkins. This is a beginner level cardio workout. This morning I used it to warm myself up before doing a more intense rebounder workout by Michelle Briehler. There are no intense moves but my heart rate was elevated and I started perspiring (not sweating) by the end. He does the moves kind of slow, too. In fact, slower than my rebounder even allowed me to go! So I was moving faster than he was through the majority of the workout. That is due to bungee strength. When I first got my Bellicon, I chose “strong” bungees. I was frustrated because I had a hard time keeping up with my favorite trainers who did fast, intense rebounder workouts. When I bought stronger bungees, that changed everything. Now I can keep up with those fast intense cardio rebounder workouts. However, it does make it difficult to keep up with a trainer when they are doing a slow rebounder workout with weaker bungees. Regardless, this was an excellent warm up routine. I burned 133 calories.
This workout is set outdoors in a park. All music, no talking. Each exercise is done for one minute. There are no rest/recoveries but you don’t need them (or at least I didn’t). There is a timer in the upper left hand corner of the screen counting down your intervals. There is another timer in the lower left hand corner of the screen counting down total workout time. When there is approximately 7 seconds left of an exercise, a video appears on the right side of the screen previewing the next exercise.
