But isn't it true that from time to time "different" activities that you are not used to doing will actually make you burn more calories because your body is not used to doing it. If you jump up and down for 20 min on a trampoline I can not see how you would not get as much benefit (cardio) as you would from jumping rope.

jumping up and down on concrete takes more effort becuase there is no ground elasticity.

I would not say it is optimal Cardio but it is not a bad idea to change it up it you want to. Like barnetjs stated. that is the thing about interval training. You might have to do it for a longer time, to get some real benefit from it but you would get some benefit from it nonethe less.


Just because you are jumping on a trampoline does not mean you are not working certain muscle groups quite the contrary. There are other muscle groups in play here like stabilizers for example. This would also help in balance and coordination. In my opinion a trampoline is better than jumping up and down on a regular floor in many ways. Hell of a lot better on the joints for sure.


The last thing I would say about a trampoline is it is just fun for some people. You can't take that away in the end. It is better than doing nothing at all would you not agree.

Excellent response. The control required to complete each jump -- flips in particular -- is astounding. If you're making an attempt to land on your feet and balance as you finish, you will definately experience quite the burn.

Anti, i mean no malice towards you, butFitnessJuggalo never mentioned a desire to shed fat (though he did mention a curiosity about how many calories it burned). He asked if jumping on a trampoline was good cardio. It very well could be. It seems much more anaerobic than aerobic -- much like sprinting -- as well as quite functional. I'm sure after a good bout on the trampoline, many of us would feel quite drained.Edited by: The Loaf


Nothing great was ever achieved by being realistic. Most people get scared when setting goals, and ask only for what they think they can get, not what they really WANT. This is a mistake because puny, "realistic" goals are NOT motivating, WANTS are motivating.

Yep loaf - that is what I was trying to say also. No I would not recommend a fat person that want to lose weight to get on the trampoline and jump everyday for 20 min - but asa way to change things up etc - it would be good cardio. I know from experience - my 11 year old has one!

I HAVE STARTED TO INCORPORATE TRAMPOLINING INTO MY WEEKLY ROUTINE - RUNNING / CYCLING IS BORING AS FUCK AND RUINS MY KNEES / HIPS & BACK - SWIMMING IS GREAT, BUT WEIRDY ENOUGH, I FIND TRAMPOLINING IS A BIT MORE ACCESSIBLE - YOU'D BE SURPRISED HOW MANY FACILITIES HAVE THEM COMPARED TO SWIMMING POOLS, AND YOU DON'T GET STUCK BEHIND SOME SLOW FUCKER IN THE FAST LANE!! AS A FOM OF FITNESS, IT'S BRILLIANT, I WAS SWEATING MY BOLLOX OFF AT THE END OF LAST NIGHTS 1 HOUR CLASS (GRANTED I HAD A TRAMPOLINE TO MYSELF BUT NEVERTHELSS) AND FEELS MUCH MORE LIKE A 'CARDIO' SESSION THAN ANY OF THE WEIGHT TRAINING I DO.
WITH ANY FORM OF TRAINING, YOU'VE GOTTA ENJOY IT OTHERWISE YOU WON'T BE MOTIVATED TO PERSIST WITH IT - IF TRAMPOLINING IS MORE FUN FOR YOU, THEN HANG UP YOUR RUNNING SHOES AND GET BOUNCING BUD!!

wow, first time I've seen an f bomb dropped on this forum...but anyway. trampolines are a blast, my girl has this urban rebounder program and it is some serious work with minimal impact. I personally enjoy the high impact stuff but I live off of motrin anyway so who knows what really hurts anymore. I second that if u enjoy it then go for it
