What is Vibration Training?

What is Vibration Training?

Instead of just standing still on the ground, the Vibrapower enables you to perform exercises on a machine that vibrates and causes the muscles in the body to activate in a way you can really feel. This can help boost your workout by adding a new dimension to every familiar exercise.

The Vibrapower series produces an oscillating motion rather than a solely vertical vibration. The key difference between oscillation vibration and piston vibration is that with piston vibration, both legs are simultaneously moving upwards or downwards, but with oscillation vibration, one leg is moving up while the other is moving downwards and can be compared to the action of a see-saw. The platform tilts from side to side over a central fulcrum, lifting one side of your body while at the same time dropping (displacing) the other side. This pattern is switched to and fro at a frequency set on the control panel.

Using a vibration machine like one of our many Vibrapower may provide benefits to your normal routine, it helps you to exercise in a different way, just stand on the oscillating plate and do your basic exercises like squats, press ups etc. The vibrations of the plate cause greatly increased levels of muscle contraction. Exercising on a vibration plate causes your muscles to contract 30 to 50 times a second. They may also force your muscles to contract repeatedly and alternately for improved muscle strength, balance and coordination.

Whereas between 40 and 60% of a muscle's fibres are recruited to perform free-weight or resistance machine exercising, performing similar exercises on a vibration plate like the Vibrapower Coach, almost 100% of the target muscles fibres are used. This is achieved by creating an almost constant state of reflex in the muscles, known as a tonic stretch/reflex. This means that the muscles are flexing and contracting at a very high frequency producing faster increases in muscular strength.

We took it to the shopping public in the video below and you can hear their thoughts on it, too.
