Depending on the training aims, you can choose between springs or elastic ropes as the key components influencing the swinging and bouncing qualities of a trampoline.
Additionally,the bouncing mat and the frame construction also influence the swinging qualities. Trampolines with steel springs are suited for dynamic exercises or jumping. Trampolines with elastic ropes are the right choice for slow, gentle and comfortable swinging or for rehabilitiation of ankle, knee or hip joints.
The stability of a trampoline depends on sturdy legs or foldable legs, a strong frame construction as well as the suspension of the bouncing mat on the frame. A sturdy trampoline is durable as well stable even when used with a higher weight load.
Well-equipped ab machines provide a higher functionality increasing the exercising variety. While equipment features like integrated lifting handles or folding mechanisms improve the handling, comfortable upholsteries facilitate the training.
This feature considers the adjustment options of single units to the user and the general ergonomics of the ab machine. An ergonomic construction with correct joint angles prevents physiological false postures.
This evaluation criterion mainly focuses on the quality of accomplishment (due to friction resistances, storages, etc.). A constant course of motion is very important for abs training. Such a movement is joint-gentle. The training effect is improved thanks to an increased muscle activity.
