Realized after posting this--I do calf raises all the time. The type at your desk--to keep the flow moving in your legs, while sitting. The type where I'm waiting in line and doing them out of utter boredom awaiting my turn. No wonder I don't enjoy doing them as a work out. I don't like if my calf area gets too muscular as it makes it so hard to shave my legs! LOL! Seems rebounding increases the amount of definition.

I don't do calf raises near as often as I should (might even help this sciatica thing going on now)... but... I've not really noticed it being harder to do after rebounding.

I've gone both ways with shoes and with sock feet on the rebounder. I also have a couple pair of all leather "grounding" type shoes and I've worn those for rebounding. I think I feel a bit more secure in those, because some of my socks will seem too slippery. My dog Java likes to jump on and then she'll shed some on the mat, so I basically avoid being barefoot on my rebounder. Other times my feet feel tired and I feel like I need the support from wearing my walking shoes. So it kinda varies, I guess? I don't have a really good answer - sorry!?

Ouch! I have to have shoes! I climb rocks barefoot at the beach, but no way on the rebounder.

I love music!

Bare-footed for me as well.

I do calf raises and haven't had any problems either way.

Do you do calf raises when you do your strength training routine? I have found that if I regularly walk and do daily (or near daily) rebounder sessions, calf raises are too much and my calf muscles start looking like the cartoon version of Popeye's muscles after spinach! Wondering if this is common or just me?

Do y'all wear shoes while rebounding or rebound bare footed? While I've rebound many sessions either way, I prefer bare footed.
