Vibration machines, also known as vibration plates or vibration platforms, use electromotors to generate vibrations that are transmitted to the body. In other words, the main benefit of vibration plates is their ability to stimulate the muscles through mechanical vibrations. When standing, sitting, or exercising on the vibrating machine, the muscles in the body contract and relax rapidly in response to the vibrations. This leads to increased muscle activation and improved muscle strength and tone.
Activate, tone and transform muscles with targeted training
Vibration machines have proven to be effective in improving various aspects of fitness and well-being. Vibration training on the machine activates deep muscles that are often neglected during standard workouts. This type of training is particularly beneficial for older individuals as it strengthens leg muscles, improves balance, and increases bone density. The overall skeletal system is reinforced, and when combined with a healthy diet, vibration training can aid in weight loss due to its high calorie expenditure. Even a 10-minute session on the vibration machine can burn calories. The vibrations also stimulate blood flow, which can enhance circulation and deliver oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, promoting faster recovery and reducing muscle soreness. What’s more, the vibrations challenge the body's balance, leading to improved stability and coordination over time. Additionally, regular training on the vibration machine can help combat cellulite.
How to use vibration machines
Typically, vibration training sessions should be limited to 10 to 20 minutes. Despite the relatively short duration, it can be just as effective as a one-hour workout at the gym. It is advisable to start with shorter sessions and gradually increase the duration as your body adapts. Incorporating variety into your vibration training routine can be beneficial. This can include using different vibration settings, exercises, positions and accessories on the vibration machine to target different muscle groups. It is always recommended to consult with a fitness professional or healthcare provider before starting any new exercise program, including vibration training. They can provide personalized guidance based on your specific needs and goals.
