If you want to lose some weight and get in shape, it is worth a try to start some exercises on a trampoline.

Therefore, it does serve as an effective and entertaining workout for many people who want to get in shape.
If you’re new to trampoline workouts for weight loss and want to give it a try, here are some tips that will help you get started.
Do jump jacks
Doing jumping jacks requires you to jump up and down on the trampoline as fast as you can for about 25 seconds at first, then decrease it to 15 seconds, 10 seconds, and finally 5 seconds. You can take a break when you feel exhausted or sore so that you don’t stretch your muscles too hard. And you should remember that doing this exercise for about 10-15 minutes at a time is enough before you stop and take a break for about 5 minutes. It’s better to do this exercise each day for 20 minutes before meals in case you may feel uncomfortable on a full stomach.
