You may not be familiar with vibration plates which are also referred to as power vibration plates but it won’t be long before they’re as familiar as rowing machines. They represent the very latest developments in fitness equipment and you can now buy them from all the best sports equipment suppliers so all the benefits of state of the art technology are available for your home gym. Vibration power plates may be new to the home gym market but they come with an impressive pedigree.
Nasa astronauts nowadays make use of vibration plates in their training. They’re already fit people to start with of course but they need to get even fitter. They need to improve flexibility and strength in their bodies and it’s been found that power plates are an ideal way of achieving this. This works because vibration power plates help to develop muscles and enhance co-ordination. Superb co-ordination is an essential quality in anyone who aspires to be an astronaut and we lesser mortals find it very useful too.
So there’s four benefits of using a power vibration plate. You get better bodily flexibility and increased strength. You develop all your muscles and your co-ordination gets better. That’s not a bad start but it doesn’t end there.
Whatever level of fitness you start from. You’ll get the benefits of developing muscle power, stimulating the metabolism, thereby losing some weight, and just improving your overall health and fitness. Moreover you’ll maintain the improvements. That’s eight benefits from using power vibration plates so far, and you’re not even aiming to be an astronaut. Or maybe you are, one shouldn’t make such assumptions!
The benefits don’t end there, there’s more to come. Power plates are a great help in improving the circulation of blood which is good for anyone. Ladies in particular; many of you often feel stressed about the presence cellulite in certain areas. You can gain two benefits at once! The aforementioned improvement in circulation will help you to get rid of the cellulite and regular use of a power vibration plate has proved to be a great reducer of stress levels generally. That’s another three benefits making eleven so far though some may argue that one or two are really being quoted twice.
That being the case let’s keep on looking at the benefits of using vibration power plates. One such benefit is time. You’ll find that by using power vibration plates your total time spent on training can be reduced without losing any of the benefits. Another is effort saved. The effort needed to use power plates is quite a bit less than that required for other forms of training. Then there’s osteoporosis in later life which can afflict anyone. Regular use of one of these amazing pieces of kit should help to considerably reduce the likelihood of this most debilitating condition developing. It does so by encouraging the build up of mineral density in the bones.
As if that wasn’t enough, the use of a power vibration plate can help prevent you developing varicose veins in your limbs. On top of all that you’ll find that, not only are you not likely to sustain injuries from their use, but with their correct use, recovery from injuries sustained elsewhere is much quicker than would otherwise be the case.
When you think about it that also suggests that if you suffer from some old injury or disability that makes it difficult or even impossible to use other types of gym equipment, power vibration plates may be just what you need. It’s worth arty anyway.
Vibration plates are ideally suited for use in a home gym because they take up very little space. All you need is room for the base that you stand on with its upright column and hand grips so you don’t need much floor space.
If you’re equipping your home gym from scratch you may find that if you make a power vibration plate the first piece of equipment you install you won’t need anything else so yet another benefit may well be a considerable saving in expense.
That won’t be right for everyone of course. It depends on what your targets are and what the purpose of your training might be, but in any case it’ll get you off to a great start.
The trouble with trying to set out a given number of benefits to be gained from using these machines is that the more you look into it, the more benefits keep popping up. Vibration power plates haven’t been around all that long and there’s little doubt that as time goes by and more and more of them are in use ever more benefits will become apparent.
