Lower body resistance band training on your outdoor trampoline.

You’ve just bought a shiny new set of resistance bands, and the thought of using them on your outdoor trampoline is probably yet to have crossed your mind! Let us enlighten you… Not only is your Vuly trampoline a fantastic enclosed space which prevents any painful falls (beginners can often feel a little wobbly when attempting resistance band exercises for the first time), the flexible surface actually requires extra balance, forcing you to engage your muscles even more.

No risk of knocking furniture around the house or twanging a band against an unsuspecting child, plus a more powerful resistance workout—now you’re talking.

How to:

  • Position yourself in the middle of the trampoline on all fours
  • Place the resistance band handles in both hands, and hook the stretchy end around one foot
  • Kick the foot with the band around it back behind you, keeping your knee bent and the rest of your body still and rigid
  • Repeat ten reps then switch to the other side

Using a short loop resistance band, these outdoor trampoline squats are extremely effective for burning calories and sculpting your lower half.

 
How to:

  • Step just over shoulder width apart, and sit back as though you’re going to sit on a chair (hold your hands in front of you or place on your hips for balance)
  • As you come back up to standing position, squeeze your glutes to engage them
  • Repeat 3 rounds of 10 reps
