History of the trampolines
The first trampolines are said to have been used by the Inuit who threw each other in the air on a walrus skin. This may also have happened in Europe to people using a blanket. This is very similar to the practice that firefighters use to trap people from falling buildings. The very first trampolines were manufactured by Nissen and Griswold in 1934. They had experimented by stretching out a piece of canvas and using coil springs. It was used as a training device for mugs, but apparently soon became popular on its own. The name comes from the Spanish word trampoline, which means springboard.Benefits of trampolines
Obesity is at a crisis level in modern society and under these current conditions any form of physical activity or exercise should be considered good. It is often difficult to get your child to exercise because all the computer games and new technology keep them inside. The trampoline has stood the test of time and is a very entertaining and entertaining way to get your child on it and make it jump around. After a few minutes, your child will start to burn life energy. Trampolines are by no means the most effective form of weight loss exercise, but we try to encourage children to go outside and play and have fun. Since children’s entertainment is dominated by video games and computer games, any more active form of recreation is great. Trampolines are great because they are fun, and fun should be reflected in children who want to do it. In the long run, this should affect body composition and health.
For parents, trampolines are a great way to take the kids off their hands for a few hours. Spending time on a trampoline is not only a fun form of exercise, but can also help develop coordination, body control, and movement skills that can provide a good foundation for participating in other sports.
Many gymnasts, air skiers and acrobats started using trampolines, and this gives them a good foundation to learn the body control and skills required for their other sports. Trampolines are used for cross training to practice certain flips and twists.
One of the disadvantages of trampolines is that there is a risk of injury. However, with most trampolines, padding is available for the frame, which can reduce the damage to some extent. Safety nets are also available that almost completely eliminate the hazards associated with the trampoline. It is a fun exercise that has stood the test of time and should be in every little nursery!Olympic sport
The trampoline is actually an Olympic sport. It was first recognized as an Olympic sport in the Sydney 2000 Games. There are some disciplines and the sportiness shown is pretty excellent. An experienced trampoline artist can jump up to ten meters in many somersaults and turns. They can also be used for cross-training for other sports, especially to improve acrobatic skills. They use din sports such as gymnastics, diving, water skiing, freestyle skiing, snowboarding and wrestling.Mini trampolines
These are the little round trampolines you see. These can be great for smaller children, but are also often used in rehabilitation environments. The unstable surface that the trampoline creates can be good for balance. It is a good proprioception exercise that is particularly useful for people returning from ankle injuries.
Trampolines are an interesting device that has been around for a very long time and will continue to do so.
