Borden says that "rebounding" is the perfect exercise. What exactly is rebounding, you ask? On her website, Jutta Tobkin, a certified reboundologist explains it this way, "Rebound exercise is the therapeutic movement of the body on a mini-trampoline. Because it moves all parts of the body at once we can also call it a cellular exercise. Rebounding is the perfect activity, because it gets everything moving at once."
Borden concurs. "Rebounding is [an] effective short burst exercise with multiple benefits. [It] helps get your heart rate up quickly, helps with digestion, helps to improve your mood and it helps you get into your fat burning zone quicker than a power walk." Any other reason it should be a woman's "go-to" workout? Absolutely. As Borden says, "You get more results in a minimal amount of time and space."
Better results in less time are definitely a plus for today's over-scheduled woman. (Which is one reason why I love this easy-to-do un-done bun hairstyle and the no-makeup makeup look. I reap the results of a time-consuming effort with hardly any at all.
