Arm yourself with a stopwatch, and jump aboard your Vuly trampoline for this energy-fuelled mini interval workout! Broken down into achievable one-minute rounds, these targeted exercises are designed to be smashed out quick-smart. See how many you can do in one minute, and then attempt a personal best each and every time you complete the exercises in the future.
We've talked about inspiring cardio workouts and yoga sessions... You don't have to commit hours to improving your body, and you don't even have to call it 'exercise'! If it's a sequence of manoeuvres on your trampoline, you can just call it quick, simple and fun for the whole family.
Remember: Before beginning your interval workout, simplywarm up for a couple of minutes by bouncing on your Vuly trampoline!
Keeping your core strong and your bottom in line with the rest of your body, see how many push ups you can complete in a minute! If you find regular push ups too intense, try lowering your knees to rest on the mat of the trampoline, while keeping your back straight.
With your feet parted and your knees slightly bent, punch up into the air above your head. Make sure that you completely extend your arms—no sneaky half punches allowed! How many can you do in each minute?
This exercise is less straining on your trampoline than the ground, because the springy is easier on your back. Have a family member or friend hold down your feet, and lay on your back with your knees bent. Sit up into a crunch position, keeping your hands on the back of your head for support.
Ensure that you reach the same sitting-up point for each rep; it’s easy to slack off once your abdominals feel the burn! Remember: Don't let your arms do the work for you.
Do for one minute!
With your arms pulled tightly into your chest and your core squeezed and strong, jump onto one foot and pull the opposite knee high in a ‘knee-up’. Quickly alternate between your two legs, so that you're performing a kind of run. Don't forget to keep your back straight and rigid!
With your feet positioned widely apart, dip low, and with your bottom hovering just above the trampoline mat, spring up into the air while pointing your toes. Land, and then dip again—ensuring your knees don’t extend past your toes.
