Jump your way to fitness with the bungee workout

There's a new workout that's taking the international fitness world by storm. While bungee jumping has been popular among thrill seekers, those who want to strengthen their core muscles are jumping onto a new trend — the bungee workout.

Started in Thailand, this workout uses resistance training to tone muscles, all while having fun. Videos of the workout online shows people strapped into a harness that is suspended by a bungee cord from the ceiling. They then dance, do aerobics, plunge to the floor, fly in the air and even bounce off the wall. And they sure seem to be having a good time doing all of this.

We spoke to fitness instructor Shaila Bhat, who feels that like Zumba, this workout has the potential to catch the fancy of fitness-conscious Indians. "I have seen videos of this workout online, and although I have not tried the bungee workout, I have done resistance training using a bungee cord. The bungee workout is a kind of dance and aerobics workout that is great for the core and to build strength. People love to try new workouts, and this could work here, just like how Zumba came to India and is now a rage," she says.

Shaila feels that this workout may help dancers and fitness seekers, but warns against people trying it at home. "It is OK to replicate simple workouts that you see online, but you need to have an expert around for anything that involves any kind of equipment," she adds.
