Benefits of Whole Body Vibration Training with the Power Plate:

Read about Acceleration Training with the Power Plate works!?!?That was my thought when I first heard of a Vibrating Platform that you stand on while holding on for dear life to its handles:-) What was once thought of as a fad, or scam like those fancy ab belts we used to see, is now a worldwide sensation. We used to mostly sell these to only Europe and other International countries, but now they are becoming vastly popular all over the United States.

Sales on Vibration Platforms are growing exponentially. The Power Plate is the original, most prestine, trusted brand of Vibration Platforms. Many copycats are out there, beware! Only Power Plates are used by athletes, and other professionals. Not the flimsy copycats.

The Power Plate Personal and Power Plate Next Generation were the Original Power Plates. Early this millenium, Power Plate replaced these 2 units. The Power Plate Personal was upgraded and renamed the Power Plate my3. The Power Plate Next Generation was upgraded and renamed the Pro5. Power Plate introduced the my5 and the pro5 airdaptive along with these models. More recently, the pro5 airdaptive hp, the pro6 and pro6 motion have been introduced as well.

Benefits of Whole Body Vibration Training with the Power Plate:
  • Increases bone mineral density is a viable solution to reverse bone loss. Eliminate osteoporosis is an accessible training tool to help many populations prevent falls and fractures
  • Increases strength
  • Improves balance and equilibrium
  • Improves posture
  • Stimulates fat loss
  • Improves health
The whole body vibration's low impact, comfortable, safe, short-duration protocols may allow any user to achieve strength and power training effects by just standing on the vibrating plate. In less than 30 minutes, three times per week, users can achieve more strength, fat loss, better balance and reflexes, improved bone density and, ultimately, greater health.
Acceleration Training Discovered
For those not aware of the fascinating science of Acceleration Training, it is the latest buzz word in fitness training. This workout system is now being used and recommended by health experts, professional athletes and celebrities the world over. Power Plate has come up with an award-winning technology to exploit this new system, and help users improve their fitness levels in even as little as 3 fifteen-minute workout sessions a week. 

The Science behind Vibration Training
The principle involved in this exercise system is known as full-body vibration training. Power Plate employs a technology called Acceleration Training to stimulate the body's natural response to vibration. What happens is that the machine vibrates in three different direction zones simultaneously. Vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, thereby enhancing your overall fitness in sessions as short as 15 minutes a day, three times per week. 

Acceleration Training works by creating instability in the human body, as with each vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions. Furthermore, these contractions must work in multiple dimensions, as the Power Plate machines actually oscillate in all three directions, exactly as the human body is designed to do. This means that one can improve functional force (stability, strength, or power) by either applying more mass or more acceleration to the body.

Many forms of training and conditioning use mass--as seen in methods with weight machines and free weights. Power Plate machines, by contrast, use the second half of the law of motion equation: they apply acceleration to the body while keeping mass (i.e., your body weight) the same. The result is that you work against a far greater influence, or "load," of gravity in every movement you perform. Power Plate machines are a great alternative for people who enjoy an active lifestyle but don't have the time to perform lengthy workouts three or more times a week.

Health Benefits
The health benefits of the Power Plate include an increase in muscular strength and flexibility, an improved range of motion, faster recovery from injury, immediate improvement in blood circulation to a variety of other measurable outcomes, including decreased cellulite, increased bone mineral density, reduced pain and soreness. Users can begin to gain measurable benefits in just 3 fifteen minute sessions over the course of a week. This is what makes Power Plate a popular name with people who have busy and inactive lifestyles.

Sports Performance Benefits
For serious athletes, workouts on the Power Plate machines enhance the results of conventional training and explosive strength training, as well as serve athletes and trainers alike to speed recovery and regeneration times. In just minutes, range of motion and stability can increase, providing a perfect warm-up before training or competing. In addition to being an ideal pre-event tool, Power Plate machines are an excellent means of continuously maximizing performance. As the vibrations stimulate fast-twitch muscle fibers, athletes who use Power Plate machines over time experience a dramatic increase in explosive strength, motor learning, muscular endurance and overall agility. The vibration response movements it puts the body through complement other strength training regimes very well. It also works very well for warm-up and cool-down purposes.
