The BASE Jump
Nice work team – hope you enjoyed that!
Even the fittest individual will find rebounding challenging for the very first time as it requires its own specific type of fitness.
A key part of the training is to ensure that your Rebounding fitness levels are high, so practice is important!
Now practice the Base Jump yourself. Watch this video to see how to break down the move. Once you are comfortable that you can teach the move please take a short video clip of you teaching the move (an iPhone video clip is fine) and then, when requested later in this course, upload the clip for us to assess.
The Base Jump is the foundation move for rebounding and the first move that any participant must master. This move is used for warm up, transition between moves, recovery and cool down.
Participants should be encouraged to return to the Base Jump at any time if they cannot complete a move or if they need to short break, rather than stopping and getting off the rebounder.
This stance is the optimum postural position to gain the most intensity. Feet are hip width apart, slight bend in the knees, on the balls of the feet, chest/head up, and slight tilt forward of the pelvis. Then with hands on the hips you bounce upwards by lifting your knees and flexing the hips and then push downwards into the mat surface and then propel yourself upwards again. On landing keep the knees slightly bent.
