Power Plate Acceleration Training
Force = Mass x Acceleration
Sir Isaac Newton would have loved Power Plate® machines. His second law explains how Acceleration Training works. We create force by accelerating your body (aka mass). So instead of adding weights, we simply move you to create forces up to an equivalent of six G's.
Frequency is defined as how many times the plate surface moves per second. The optimal range for whole body vibration is between 25-50hz. What is the difference? Higher frequencies are better for massage and stimulating blood flow, while lower are better for strength, balance and core training.
Recent studies revealed that Acceleration Technology offers a 57% improvement in weight loss when compared to conventional exercise and diet alone. It increases circulation and oxygenates blood flow, leading to a decrease in toxins in the body, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
10 minutes on the Power Plate® is equivalent to 60 minutes in the gym! Power Plate® is used by world-class athletes and teams to improve strength, agility, balance and flexibility.
While you aren't going into space anytime soon, you can probably relate to those that do. Spending time in near zero-g causes bone mineral density to decrease and muscles to atrophy similar to when we age. The Russian Cosmonauts first used vibration for rehab and you can enjoy the benefits as well.
Power Plate® is the ultimate wellness solution for all ages, lifestyles and physical abilities. The benefits of Power Plate® whole body vibration aren't just limited to workouts.
Vibrations stimulate the muscle-pump-effect and cause an increase in blood-flow with an improvement of transport capacity for:
Oxygen / Carbon dioxide
Vitality components (micro nutrients)
Energy components (macro nutrients)
Derivates and waste (i.e. lactic acid)
Human Growth Hormone hgH production
• 350% increase in your own hgH in 6 months!
