7 Exciting Tricks to do on a Trampoline

Trampolines are a fun way to get exercise in the backyard, in the park, indoors at your home, or even at a friend’s house. A trampoline is also a great tool for improving your balance and coordination, which can help you keep your cool on the court!

A trampoline can be used for autism therapy as we have seen in this article.

However, after some time bouncing back and forth on the rebounder, it becomes boring. To spice things up, here are seven new trampoline tricks to try on your rebounder that will have you jumping out of your skin with excitement!

7 Tricks to do on a trampoline

While these tricks will make trampolining fun for teenagers and adults alike, we warn that younger kids should not be encouraged to do them since they are unsafe and could result in injuries if done wrongly.

If your bigger kid insists on trying them, be sure to be there so as to supervise the moves. You will also need to make sure that your trampoline has a safety netting wound around it, is well padded and the ground next to the trampoline has a thick mat for a soft landing in case the child falls off the trampoline.

For all these tricks, the person jumping should be doing it alone. Crowding in a trampoline no matter how big could lead to injuries especially when trying these antics.

Let’s dig into the tricks.

1) The Trampoline Tumble

This is a nice trick that can be tried by adults and kids alike.

Jump onto one side of the trampoline while holding onto one end. Use momentum to flip yourself over so you’re now facing down towards the ground from where you jumped off (you should be upside-down when you jump off).

2.The trampoline front flip

This is an advanced trick that should only be tried by adults. Do not encourage younger kids to try it.

A front flip is a somersault executed in such a way that the person takes off from one direction, rotates forward over their head by 180 degrees and then lands on their feet facing away from where they started.

– To do this trick, first jump as high as you can to gain enough momentum. This will provide enough force for the flip.

– Next, raise your legs and push off the trampoline as you turn 180 degrees in mid-air to land on the other side of it.

– For a smoother landing, you can try bending one knee before touching down or twisting your body so that you are facing away from where you took off.

– Remember to wear appropriate safety gear when you try this trick.

3.The trampoline back flip

Similar to the front flip, a back flip is also a somersault, but it’s executed in such a way that the person takes off from one direction and rotates backward over their head by 180 degrees.

– To do this trick, first jump as high as you can to gain enough momentum. This will provide enough force for the flip.

– Next, raise your legs and push off the trampoline as you turn 180 degrees in mid-air to land on the other side of it.

– For a smoother landing, you can try bending one knee before touching down or twisting your body so that you are facing away from where you took off.

– Again for this trampoline trick, you need to wear appropriate safety gear.

4.The trampoline head stand

The trampoline head stand is the most difficult trick to do on a rebounder. Kids should therefore be discouraged to try it.

Adults who are beginners on the trampoline should also not try it.

So how do you do the trampoline head stand?

– Place your hands flat on the floor, then raise yourself up and jump at just the right time so that you land with your feet between two of the springs’ wires

– The force from this will propel you upwards while flipping over backwards in a head stand position

– You can then use your legs to propel you back up.

– For a smoother landing, you can try bending one knee before touching down or twisting your body so that you are facing away from where you took off.

– Again for this trampoline head stand, ensure safety first and do not try it if you are not an expert.

– If done correctly the trampoline headstand is a fun move that can be executed with precision.

5.Trampoline tuck jump

This trick can be done by adults as well as kids.

– Start off by facing the trampoline and then start running towards it, getting as much speed as possible.

– Jump onto the rebounder with your legs spread out to either side of you. Your hands should be on your hips or behind your head if you want them not blocking any part of this trick.

– As soon as you land, jump as high into the air and you fold your knees towards your chest before landing again on your feet.

– You will need to be able to land with some precision for this move so ensure that there is plenty of room around the trampoline when executing it.

6.Seat drop

This trick is great and fun for kids since it can be executed without much effort.

Beginners can also try it out since it is basic and safe to try out.

– Sit on the trampoline, facing inwards and then jump off of your seat so that you land back into it. It will not take long before this becomes second nature with practice.

7.Trampoline Somersaults

It is not difficult to master this trampoline trick since all you need to do is know how to somersault. The trampoline gives you the momentum you need.

– This can be done by first getting into position, before jumping off the trampoline and somersaulting on landing. Ensure that you are in perfect balance for when you do so as well as ensuring there is plenty of room around the trampoline lest you fall off to the ground.

Conclusion on Trampoline tricks you can try out

In conclusion, a trampoline can be fun especially if you are willing to learn some of these trampoline tricks.

Some though can be extremely dangerous and should only be tried with a guided instructor. They may also depend on the trampoline size, so it is best to know these before you start trying out your own new tricks. Do not forget that safety always comes first!
