How a trampoline can improve your flexibility.

Has it been years since you’ve been able to touch your toes, or do you struggle to get up off the floor? Maybe you can’t remember when your body didn't feel stiff or tight. You likely have poor flexibility. No matter your age or weight, you can improve your flexibility easily at home!

We've spoken before about trying flexibility-building exercises – like yoga and pilates – on your trampoline. Today, we discuss exactly why being flexible is so important and other ways that you can use your Vuly trampoline to improve your stretching and reaching.

How a trampoline can improve flexibility – What is flexibility?

Flexibility refers to the range of motion in a joint or in collection of joints; it's directly related to your body’s movements and how easily you can move. Our flexibility can vary throughout our body. It can become better or worse as we age, depending on circumstances like our levels of physical activity.

Increasing your flexibility is be beneficial in a number of ways. Not only does it allow our bodies to move more freely, with a fuller range of motion – meaning that we can go about our day-to-day activities more easily – but it can also reduce muscle pain and prevent injury by loosening up tight muscles and joints.

You can boost your flexibility from the comfort of your own home, and without any professional guidance or cost, no matter who you are! The key to is completing small, consistent daily stretches. Remind yourself that you won't become a gymnast overnight, but you will see results from doing a little bit each day.

You’re probably familiar with 'static stretching' – completing one stretch at a time and holding it for around 30 seconds. However, 'dynamic stretching', which involves movement, is also helpful. You can even try it on your trampoline:

  • Warm up with some basic bouncing. Then, incorporate flexibility exercises – such as bounce squats or in-air leg splits into your dedicated Vuly sessions.
  • Try focusing on dynamically stretching one muscle group at a time.
    • For example: begin with your legs, before moving onto your arms or shoulders.
  • Finish with a slow and steady static stretching session on your trampoline jump mat.
