1: How many muscles do you use while trampolining?
Good answer: 400 muscles. During trampolining you use almost all your muscle groups. Landing and pushing off require a lot of effort, think of your hamstrings and calf muscles. You also use your abdominal muscles during every jump to stay in balance and land straight.
