An Olympic Trampoline Routine to Do on Your Springfree

The 2024 Summer Olympics are fast approaching.   

Sports like gymnastics and trampolining will take center stage in the premier competition for international athletes.  

Many children around the world will be watching the Olympics with hopeful eyes, hoping to one day be the next Simone Biles or Rosie MacLennan.   

All Olympic athletes must start somewhere, though.  

Today, we’re giving you a full Olympic trampoline routine (with instructions) to practice at home on your Springfree Trampoline.   

If you are an aspiring professional gymnast or trampolinist, this routine could help take your skills to the next level!  

Backyard Olympic Trampoline Routine to Train Like the Pros 

Here is a trampoline workout you can perform multiple times a week to start training like an Olympian.  

This workout is made to be beginner-friendly and is highly customizable.   

Don’t be afraid to get creative with it!   

Even though it’s geared toward gymnasts, it’s also great for cheerleaders and other athletes looking to develop their skills.  

Start with light stretching and a 5-minute warm-up jump. Do 2-3 rounds of 1-minute on, 1-minute off for each exercise. Once you advance your skills, see if you can do the moves consecutively with minimal rest breaks.  

1. Seat Drop   

 

How to perform:  

  • Stand straight with arms at sides. 
  • Jump in the air and move your legs forward, keeping them straight.  
  • Land on your bottom with your legs straight out in front of you. Your palms should be down with fingers pointed toward toes.   

2. Pike Jump  

 

How to perform:  

  • Stand straight with your arms at sides. 
  • Jump and point your legs out, keeping them straight and parallel to the mat. 
  • At the top of the movement, reach with your arms and point fingers to toes.  
  • Land standing with your legs straight.   

3. Tuck Jumps  

   

How to perform:   

  • Stand straight with hands at sides.  
  • Jump and pull your knees to chest with your hands grasping around knees or ankles. 
  • Land with your body straight and arms straight above your head.   

4. Half-Twist Jumps     

  

How to perform:   

  • Stand straight with arms at sides.  
  • Jump and turn in the air, facing the opposite direction for a half twist (180-degree).  
  • Land straight with your hands at sides.  

Work up to a full twist (360-degree) as you advance with this movement.   

5. Straddle Jumps

How to perform: 

  • Stand straight with arms at sides. 
  • Jump and point legs out sideways (about a 90-degree angle apart). Keep your legs straight, reach with arms and point fingers to toes.   
  • Land with your legs straight like the starting point.    

6. Optional: Flips  

If you have been professionally trained, end your workout with front flips, backflips or side flips until failure.   

You can also add in some crunches after jumping for extra core work!
