More than just a workout
You’ve been wanting to get fit but the thought of hitting the gym doesn’t excite you at all. Let Croyez Studio’s Power Plate workout provide some much needed fitspo (that’s fitness inspiration).
Engineered to activate the body’s natural reflexive response to vibration, Power Plate’s vibrating platform moves 25 to 50 times per second upwards, downwards, forwards, backwards and side-to-side to engage your muscles.
Here’s why Power Plate rocks:
1. It improves muscle strength
Performing isometric exercises like squats, lunges, push ups or tricep dips on a Power Plate may help build muscle in a short period of time. And research states that these types of targeted exercises, or training modalities, are an effective way to gain muscular strength and power, according to the Idea Health & Fitness Association.
Performing each exercise for 30 to 90 seconds once a day, thrice a week will have positive results.
2. It increases bone density
A study published by the Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise journal found that whole-body vibration training, like Power Plate, is effective in reducing the risk of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women by increasing lumbar bone mineral density and leg strength.
3. It boosts your flexibility
Whole-body vibration training is said to improve flexibility, even in elite athletes.
A study in the April 2006 issue of the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise conducted by the U.S. Olympic Committee discovered that vibration training increased range of motion in highly trained male gymnasts.
You can perform traditional hip, leg and shoulder stretches on the Power Plate to achieve greater flexibility.
4. It can help with weight loss
Studies have shown that using Power Plate Acceleration training can help you burn twice as much visceral fat than traditional diet and exercise alone.
A vibration plate is simply designed to induce muscular contractions by sending waves of energy to the body when you stand on it. This comes about when your muscles flex and relax to maintain balance on the moving plates.
The movements induced are involuntary and may seem to require minimal effort, which is why some people are excited to use vibration plates to lose weight.
