See How Trampolines Can Be Part Of Any Exercise ProgramWritten by Paul Johnson
When trampoline was invented by a young boy intrigued by ability of aerialists to bounce in a net and perform artistic maneuvers while they did so, it literally became "springboard" for a whole new sport.
George Nissen, who was a tumbler and gymnast himself, took sports to a whole new height by putting them on canvas strung in a metal frame. Over years, canvas has been replaced by nylon weave, and frames are made lighter and more stable. And sport has evolved to incorporate elements of gymnastics, ballet, and even diving.
Trampolines first became available to public through entertainment venues where you paid for a ticket to bounce around for a specified time. Eventually, they found their way into schools, then gyms, then into organized associations as a real, and challenging competitive sport.
While world championships allow for a variety of competitions, including team events, and synchronized trampoline routines where two people perform on separate equipment, Olympics at this time, recognizes only individual skills event.
Supplements to reduce rashWritten by Anonymous
Question : I HAVE a skin allergy on both legs. I get a light, itchy rash especially before my periods. The itch gets worse during menstruation. I have had this since my early teens. Please advise.
Answer : FROM symptoms that you have described, you may be suffering from dermatitis. Dermatitis is term used for an inflammation of skin. This condition is characterised by a rash and may be brought out by sensitivity to cosmetics, plants, cleaning materials, metal, wool and so on. Other forms of dermatitis can be caused by excessive heat or cold, friction or sensitivity to various medicines. Dermatitis is usually accompanied by itching at site of rash.
As it always happens before and during menstruation, it may also be caused by hormone imbalance triggering allergy. During menstruation, microflora in vagina also changes. This will increase risk of getting a yeast and bacteria infection, which will also cause skin allergy. To confirm cause, consult a doctor.
Avoid rough or tight clothing. Washed, breathable soft cotton is best. Wash new clothes several times before wearing. Use plain soap powder (not enzyme detergents) when washing clothes and be sure to rinse well. Avoid soap and baths as much as possible. Use soap substitutes. Take quick showers or baths with only slightly warm water. Pat dry (never rub) after bathing. Apply a lubricating moisturiser while skin is still damp. Apply moisturiser several times a day to areas of skin that are very dry.
