Mini Trampoline Workout with Hand Weights is a surprisingly intense rebounder workout from Naomi Joy. Especially for something so short! This is a cardio workout but you are also using light dumbbells to increase the intensity and sometimes my arms really started burning. Especially with any of the isometric moves. There are no rest/recoveries in this workout so even Naomi’s arms were burning out. She dropped her arms a few times to let them thaw. I did, too! Just more frequently than she did! And, of course, she does not forget to include squat jumps! For some reason my FitBit stopped tracking this workout 6 minutes in, so I don’t have any stats to share. But it felt intense! This workout is set outdoors and the scenery is gorgeous! Clear blue sky, ocean behind Naomi and a cityscape behind that. At the end of the video Naomi shares that it was filmed on Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver, Canada.
There is a timer in the upper left hand corner of the screen counting down the workout time. Each exercise is done for 40 seconds with no rest/recoveries between exercises. There is another timer in the lower left hand corner of the screen counting down your intervals. When there is anywhere from 9 to 17 seconds left of an exercise, a video appears previewing the next exercise. There is no talking in this workout until the end when the stretch is done voice over. It is set to motivating music.
