if you’re a regular bouncer with the ness, but haven’t tried sculpt yet, it’s quite possible that you don’t know where to start. our sculpt offerings are robust - mat, classic, cardio, and ness - so there is something for everyone to enjoy, but it can be overwhelming when you’re first dipping your toes into the sculpt pool. start by thinking about sculpt through a bounce lens and identifying the things you want to improve about your bounce performance. our sculpt classes are specifically designed to compliment bounce and each category can help to make your bounce stronger, smoother and, most importantly, more fun. take a look at these frequently asked “how do I (insert bounce dreams here)” as a quick guide on how to build a sculpt routine around bounce.
how do I…..
lift my knees up: one of the fundamentals of bounce is keeping the upper body low, while lifting the knees up towards the chest by engaging the core and relaxing the hip flexors. the key to accomplishing this correctly and with more power is abdominal strength and the sculpt category you need, is mat sculpt. mat sculpt takes place on the floor and is completely low impact. expect extended plank variations, tabletop work, and longer supine ab series, that allow you to build core endurance as well as strength.
pick up choreography: becoming more proficient at learning combinations is all about repetition; the more you practice learning and understanding choreography, the easier it will get. that being said, it’s also important to switch things up every once in a while. if you repeat the same bounce class over and over again, you’ll likely end up memorizing the combination after the third or fourth time rather than challenging your learning capabilities. add in a little differentiation by incorporating ness sculpt into your routine. ness sculpt works on building one longer combination throughout the entirety of class to challenge both your muscle and mental memory, and will force you to step outside of your comfort zone by introducing new movement patterns.
move to faster beats: as you get further into your bounce journey, moving from simple to advanced classes, you’ll notice the tempo increases quite a bit. moving quickly on your trampoline requires a significant amount of practice, which is why we recommend having at least 20 bounce sessions under your belt before moving to the advanced category; however, there is work to be done off your trampoline as well. enter cardio sculpt - our sculpt offering with a little extra umph, faster beats and high impact options. incorporating a different type of cardio into your routine keeps your body guessing, improving your cardiovascular endurance, and allowing you to bounce faster and longer when you step back up to your trampoline.
