You Probably may have spotted the video while scrolling through your Instagram and Facebook Feeds.
A room full of people plunging to the ground, then flying through the air.
It is a popular new trend sweeping all around the globe and has been gaining much anticipation and momentum as the next big thing to hit the local fitness scene.
Bungee workout is a beautiful combination of core training, cardiovascular exercise, and resistance training—all with a bungee cord attached to your waist.
There are various bungee cords based on your weight, height, and strength.
The Trend Actually started in THAILAND. The point of the workout is to combine fast-paced, explosive movements (jumping or sprinting) with the weight-bearing bungee cord.
It’s definitely one of the most unique workouts around.
Why to BUNGEE WORKOUT?
A lot of people get bored with their workouts and are looking for something new and this is perfect for those people because it gets people laughing and they don’t realize they are working out. It gets you out of your comfort zone and it makes you a little braver.
These workouts are excellent for building muscle and fat-burning. The Bungee cord carries some of your weight, so classic resistance training movements like push-ups and squats become a bit easier.
The bungees allow you to perform maneuvers you would not otherwise be able to do, like one-handed push-ups with your feet suspended in the air or flying through the air and plunging to the floor.
However, the fact that you’re constantly moving, running and jumping means you’re doing a lot of low-intensity, steady-state exercise.
This is ideal for activating stored fat and burning it in a way high-intensity workout can’t.
The workout is also great for those who want to enhance mobility and the bungee cords absorb most of the impact on your joints. To improve your flexibility, these workouts are an amazing way to go.
Finally, bungee workouts are just a heck of a lot of fun!
You can fly around the studio on a bungee cord, running on the walls and feeling absolutely weightless. It’s one of the most unique workouts, and one of the most enjoyable anywhere in the world.
