Are you bored with simple tricks that you want to spice it up with something different? Challenge yourself on the trampoline!
Trampoline gymnastics is a perfect sport for kids and adults who want to experience being on high. It is great for high-flyers who can do twists and rotations in every jump. Bring out those adventurous friends and try out these cool tricks.
1. Double Bounce
Double bounce is best performed with two or more jumpers. The goal is to bounce extra high into the air and fall off to the center of the trampoline or as close as possible.
In this trick, you are allowed to perform spins as many as you can before landing. If it is your first time on a trampoline, you may start with small turns until you know how to do a full 360-degree spin.
3. Side Flip
Front and back flips are considered to be the basic but this one is slightly different. Side flip is a bit difficult as you need to be flipping on your side. Always tuck your legs in tight once you get a strong bounce to perform it well and prevent injury.
Handsprings are cool as you mainly turn a jump into a flip. You can do this by landing with your hands on a trampoline and then arch your back once you touch it.
5. Pike Jump
Pike jump is great for people with great flexibility and would be more challenging for beginners. You have to jump on the trampoline and bounce higher in the air. Once you get a decent bounce height, have your legs forward and touch your toes.
While jumping up and down on a trampoline is really cool and fun, make sure you take every move with extra care. Trampolining is a trickier exercise as you need to give out extra force, pay attention to your knees, ankles, hands, neck, back and other body parts to avoid injury. Ready to fly like a superman?
