Vibration Maximises Workout In Less Time

Vibration Exercise Platforms are being used in rehabilitation clinics and therapy clinics all over the world to help members and clients regain muscle tone, restore bone mass and help regain balance and learn to walk after serious illness or injury. But, did you know that they can also be used my elite athletes to boost their workout, avoid injury and help to flush the body of toxins built up during a workout?

Here are some of the stats, I found on the effects of Vibration Platforms on exercise:

  • Similar strength gains from 3 months of vibration exercise (maximum time 20 minutes) compared to 1 hour of conventional strength training

  • Doubling of blood circulation after vibration training, resulting in the body carrying off waste products much faster, thereby enhancing recovery.

  • Duration vibration exercise stimulates force and power output

  • Significant hormonal effects from training (increased testosterone and growth hormone, and decreased cortisol, ‘stress hormone’)

  • Increased flexibility

  • Increased explosive power

  • Explosive strength increases from 10 minutes a day of vibration training for 10 days is equivalent to those found from 200 drop-jumps from 24 inches, twice a week, for a year

  • Accelerated gains in neurological adaptation, shifting the force/velocity curve to the right (faster strength gains)

Now I don’t know about you but I would think that adding a 10 minute stint on a Vibration Platform to my workout regime on a regular basis would be a great way to capitalise on all the benefits using one can bring and maximise my strength and stamina at the same time.

live a balanced life…
