At the end of a Rebound session, include stretches as you would at the end of any exercise class but ensure that the stretches you perform are more specific to the moves that are included in your class.
For rebounding specifically, we would suggest that you always perform the following stretches as these muscle groups have been worked extremely hard!
- Hip flexors (both single joint and two joint) Psoas and rectus femoris
- Abductors and Adductors
- Calf and lower leg/ankle (Gastrocnemius and Soleus)
- All upper body stretches
These stretches can be performed on or off the rebounder.
We are all have different biomechanics and work in different professions that influence our posture and flexibility. Therefore, it’s always best to advise participants to be assessed by a qualified trainer or therapists and have a stretching programme that’s specific for them as well as doing a ‘general’ post exercise stretch.
