What is Cellular Exercise and how does it work?
Cellular exercise and the cellular exercise unit better known as rebounding, rebound exercise and the rebounder have been around for nearly 50-years. The cellular exercise unit looks like one of those toy mini trampolines, but unlike the toy and foreign made imitators, the cellular exercise unit I refer to in this article is more therapeutic and made with quality and safety in mind. I refer to rebounding as a cellular exercise because that is what it does; it exercises every cell in the body.
What makes this a cellular exercise?
There are a number of reasons, lets look at each one briefly.
Are you aware that the common denominator to all exercise is gravity? Think of it this way, when you perform an exercise such as a push-up your body is working against gravity. Alternatively, when you lift free weights, you are moving the resistance against gravity. When you subject muscles to both gravity and resistance, the muscles in turn, get stronger. What are all muscles made of? Cells, these cells get stronger because gravity and resistance affect each cell. This change in environment, as it were, causes each cell to react by getting stronger. Cell by cell each one develops individual strength and this in turn affects the whole body. When you challenge your muscles against resistance, or a change of environment, each cell will adapt to this stimuli by getting stronger.
It was around the early 1900’s when Albert Einstein brought about a new theory of gravity; he found that the human body could not tell the difference between the forces of acceleration, deceleration, and gravity. Einstein also discovered that acceleration and deceleration are two individual forces in and of themselves, and when combined with the constant force of gravity in its vertical plane they create G-Forces on the body. G-Forces are constant forces brought on by the gravitational pull of the earth. For example, when you stand on a scale to check your body weight, you are in fact really checking the amount of G-Forces in pounds that are pulling your body towards the center of the earth. When you cellular exercise, you are taking your body’s weight (resistance) and moving up and down in a vertical plane. Using the force of acceleration (↑), deceleration (↓) and gravity (↓) in the same plane as gravity makes this the only type of exercise that has this cellular effect on the body. From this standpoint, you are building strength to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves and bones with every bounce.
“NASA has discovered it to be about 68% more efficient than running or jogging.”5 Cellular exercise is an efficient way of improving the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Past scientific evidence has reported that jumping for ten minutes is equivalent to approximately thirty minutes of skiing and that jumping rope for ten minutes is as effective in conditioning the body as thirty minutes of fast jogging. Bouncing on the cellular exercise unit is actually safer on the joints and more aerobically efficient than jumping rope on a hard surface. Cellular exercise enhances aerobic capacity by allowing more oxygen to be processed by the lungs, while functioning the heart muscles (which is made up of cells) to grow stronger and pump more blood with each stroke.
What you get from this efficient form of exercise is a decreased resting heart rate which equates to the heart working less while at rest and that equals a longer lasting heart. The efficient utilization of oxygen makes cellular exercise an excellent and efficient means of burning fat for fuel. Cellular exercise affects every cell in the body and has a direct effect on the amount of oxygen that gets into the cell.
“Lack of cellular oxygen supply is probably the most common cause of cell injury and may also be the ultimate mechanism to injury.”6
Out of the over 70-trillion cells in the body, 7-trillion are immune specific. The immune system makes up 1% of the body. The immune system is our natural defense system, defending our bodies against foreign invaders such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, colds & flu and cancer. The immune system can identify, remember, attacks, and destroy illness-causing invaders and infected cells The National Institute of Health has states that, “the immune system provides one of the body’s main defenses against cancer.”7 It has been shown scientifically that exercise boost the immune function of the body.
Often overlooked, as an essential component of the immune function, however, is the lymphatic system. Some of the immune cells are located in both the blood and lymphatic fluids. The lymphatic system is a network of vessels and lymph nodes that runs throughout the body, transporting lymph fluid and eliminating toxins. The lymphatic system has an effect on every cell and organ of the body; the lymphatic system is the terrain in which the immune system functions. As I mentioned in the beginning of this article, Physiologist Claude Bernard has discovered that the “milieu interior – the interior environment”, needed to be clean in order to promote health and prevent illness. The lymphatic system is the “interior environment” or terrain that needs to remain clean in order for the immune cells to respond efficiently and effectively. The health of the lymphatic system plays a very important role in the prevention of illness. The challenge is that the lymphatic system does not have a pump. The heart pumps the blood, but the lymph fluid needs a self-pumping action in order for this system to flush out toxins and eliminate waste products that cause illness; it requires movement, gravity and massage. Cellular exercise does supply all three for anyone interested in moving waste products out of their cells and out of their body. Keeping the lymph fluid recycled this way helps sustain a cleaner cellular environment, making it easier for oxygen, nutrients and water to get to the cell. As mentioned earlier, Dr. Alexis Correl suggests, “it is merely the fluid in which it floats that degenerates.”
Cellular exercise will enhance health and improve fitness from the inside out at the cellular level.
According to Mr. Albert E. Carter, an authority on the subject of rebounding and rebound exercise and author of the book entitled “The New Miracles of Rebound Exercise”, says it is, “the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man.”8
Medical and naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, physical, occupational and massage therapists, nurses, athletic and personal trainers have all recommend cellular exercise to their patients or clients.
