Many people experience difficulties and challenges when it comes to weight loss. You can eliminate any fear or feelings of hopelessness with the combination of different tried and tested methods to shed unwanted body fat.
Vibration plate machines are machines and exercise devices that work by causing your muscles to contract when you stand on them. The idea is not only to help tone muscles but to quickly and effectively lose weight.
According to medical studies funded by the Artesis University College of Antwerp, you can consistently lose between five percent and 11 percent body fat on a regular basis with the use of vibration plates.
Individuals were placed in three separate groups and were instructed to use vibration plates with variables of dieting and exercise.
When used properly with a combination of the two, you can lose the weight that you want and meet your weight loss goals.
As stated by researcher Dirk Vissers, “They still need a healthy diet and aerobic exercise, but this could be a viable alternative to weightlifting.”
How Vibration Plates Work
Vibration plates are becoming popular throughout the world due to their ease of use and encouraging results. These machines work by stimulating involuntary muscles to contract when you stand on the machine.
Your body muscles are triggered to respond to keep you in balance and do so with multidirectional contractions.
On an average, vibration plates generally stimulate between thirty and fifty reflexes per second in a continuous manner. This results in an intense workout with less exhaustion at the end of your routine.
The technology used to deliver oscillating motion involves a pivotal point that simulates walking. As your muscles contract one at a time in a consistent pattern, this only adds a thirty percent load on your body weight and helps to train your body.
You can choose to use this machine in different levels and amplitudes to maintain your workout routine. The machines can be adjusted, being set on any range between 1 mm and 10 mm. The higher frequency that your muscles contract and the longer you work out, the more calories you can burn using this technology.
One of the most beneficial advantages of vibration plates are that you can maximize your workout and cut back on the amount of time working out.
This means that you can plan shorter routines and save time throughout the day. You may perform strength training exercises without having to lift conventional heavy weights that are uncomfortable for you. You may be able to tone and strengthen your upper and lower body without using resistance cables or other accessories,
If you want to target certain areas of your body, this machine offers low-impact activity that allows you to exercise at higher frequencies to work towards the results that you want while reducing the likelihood of sustaining an injury while working out.
Breaking Muscle also talks about 4 different studies that shows the promise of using vibration machines here. One of the most important benefits of this vibration plate machines are how they can improve circulation and lymphatic drainage. Circulation is imperative to weight loss because of how it can decrease cellulite and stimulate the removal of excess water from the body that leads to weight gain.
Research into the use of vibration plates show that if you rely on this method alone to meet your weight loss goals, you may be let down.
Just like any other weight loss method, it is wise to use caution and to use a combination of techniques to maintain health and well-being.
There is also an uncertainty as to how a vibration machine effects you in the long run. Regular exercise, or at least a combination of a vibration plate and regular exercise may be best for your body in the long run.
While vibration plate machines are being installed in gyms across the nation and becoming more widely available, people are doing research into the technology. They may be best suited for public facilities since they are rather large, noisy and expensive. With this being said, if you want to purchase a machine for personal use, you need to make sure that you have a dedicated amount of space for it and be sure that you find one to meet your needs.
To err on the side of caution, these machines may not be the best option for individuals who have certain preexisting medical conditions. For example, if you have suffered a broken bone or recently had implants, this machine may possibly cause unwanted complications.
On the same note, those who suffer from epilepsy, gall or kidney stones or are pregnant should avoid this weight loss method due to disrupting your well-being.
Also, if you have joint issues, this machine may cause pain and could cause an exacerbation of your symptoms. The best thing to do is to make a decision based on your condition, health, and see if this method fits your weight loss plan.
Vibration Machines for Weight Loss
Vibration plate training machines can help reduce anxiety associated with working out while saving time and enhancing self confidence. They seem to be a safe alternative to traditional workout routines and other techniques, such as squats, lunges, calf raises, push-ups, and even abdominal crunches.
Here is a good video showing you different kinds of exercises you can do on a vibration machine:
There are many factors to consider before choosing to use vibration plates for your workout. Once you make a goal and assess any risks involved, you can make an informed decision based on your findings. With the technology used with these machines, you can guarantee a safe workout without straining muscles. You may even find the added motivation that you misplaced with frustration or doubt over meeting your weight loss goals.
Create a healthy and balanced diet with regular light aerobic exercises to get the best out of your vibration plate workout.
