I have a mini-trampoline which is well cool!

Apparently, (according to the OH who has researched the thing for hours!), it is one of the best ways of keeping trim and fit. You gradually build up the time you spend on it and it is something like 64% more beneficial than jogging for an hour or so! And that's only spending 20 mins on it. Believe me though, to start with 5 mins feels like a life time. It can tone up all muscles whilst you are bouncing and you can even do stomach crunches whilst you kind of lie on it- this helps to stop you hurting your back.

As for toning of arms- use cans or jars of stuff from your cupboard and do sets of 20 for about 10 mins a day (you can do 5 mins in the morning and 5 in the evening). I have been doing this for a couple of weeks and it seems to help.

Hello again!

Mini trampolines (or trampettes) don't have to be expensive, I was given mine but I have checked argos and they have quite a selection ranging from 15-40 squids. I have the very page right here:

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Browse/ID69/10199532/c_1/1|category_root|Sports+and+leisure|10199392/c_2/2|cat_10199392|Home+gym+equipment|10199523/c_3/3|cat_10199523|Trampolines+and+trampettes|10199532.htm

I know it's a bleeding long link isn't it?! The thing with trampettes are that they are completely impact free, so your ankles should be fine. I have slack tendons in my ankles, which are prone to 'move' about which really hurts- but this has never happened whilst on the rebounder. Not only that, my kids love it and the OH has started using it a lot and has lost 1/2 stone in 2 weeks just from bouncing!! He does approx 15 mins a day now, but started from just 5.

I cannot recommend them more :)

for the old bingo wings, bench dips are the best Tricep dips: Sit on a step or sturdy chair with your hands beside your thighs. Balance on your arms and move your backside in front of the step or chair while holding your legs straight. Bend your elbows while lowering your body a few inches and focus on keeping the shoulders down and the elbows parallel to one another and at 90 degrees. Push back up to starting position concentrating on your form. Repeat for 2-3 reps of 15. It's a killer but it works!

Haha I might be a complete loser but I love Davina McCall's fitness DVDs! The programmes put together with her personal trainers who are also in the video so its not just another cheesy celebrity dvd.

Anyway, she does boxercise in one and a similar one in another and my arms got really toned from all the punching! There are some skipping intervals to keep the heart rate up (without a rope, basically jumping on the spot) but you can easily miss them out as they only last a minute.

where your calves blend straight to your feet and you don't have ankles!! Always makes me laugh. I have one friend who has cankles and one friend who says she has legs like chicken legs and they both want to be like the other - mental
