Urban Rebounding: Vol 2 The Challenge

J.B. Berns

I've had my rebounder since this spring and had almost given up on it. This is the first rebounding workout I've done that I completely enjoyed! I have the first UR video as well as Champion Rebounding. These workout beats them both hands down! The only complaint I have is that I wish it were just a bit longer. But it will be perfect for those days when I want to do a short cardio workout before weight training.

The first 10 minutes or so is a review of all the moves used in the video. J.B just instructs with one person who demonstrates all the moves. I appreciate that this is an entirely separate segment from the actual workout.

The actual workout starts with a 5 minute warm up and goes into 28 minutes of rebounding. The moves are basic (knees, kicks, jogs, etc.) but fun and J.B. has you moving them "around the world" for variety. It's definitely challenging, but very doable. The music rocks too! And all of the participants look like they're having a blast. The set is bright and the music is loud.

After the workout, there's a short 2 minute lower body strength segment on the rebounder consisting of squats followed by an ab section and a stretch.

This workout is fun. The music is great and J.B. is a motivating person to workout with. Definitely the best rebounder workout out there to date.

Instructor comments: Much looser and funner in this video than in the first Urban Rebounding Video. He isrelaxed and having a good time, but also very motivating. Saying things like, "Don't wander off on me now, give it all you got." and "I'm sweating too."

I enjoyed the Basics workout by JB Berns and this one continued that enjoyment. It is a bit longer, with many of the same moves, and it really kicks it up a notch. It also incorporates Squats, push ups, Knee lifts and kicks.

You do need a bit of balance to do this - something I lack ont he best of days - but it is a fun, motiviating workout for the rebounder and is really easy on the knees.

As I have said before, I really enjoy JB Berns as an instructor. He just takes charge and I find him incredibly motivating. I would like to see what he could do to another kind of workout (like floor aerobics or BOSU).

I really like this workout and highly recommend it. I can't wait to see more form this great instructor.
