Power Plates Faq
What is power plates?
The Power-Plate is a vibrating platform using a technology called “Acceleration Training” to transmit waves of energy throughout the body. It moves on the three different planes of motion, challenging the body to maintain balance, strengthening the muscles and supporting muscles and connective tissues.
By performing simple exercises (bicep curls, lunges, squats and such) on a vibrating platform your body gets in shape easily and quickly.
The Power-Plate has been found to decrease cellulite, and increases bone mineral density.
What are the benefits of a power plate machine?
Strengthens muscles in less time
With the Power Plate it is possible to have a full workout in just 15-20 min. The vibration causes muscles to contract and relax as the body attempts to maintain balance. As this happens at such a rapid pace, the body builds muscle tone and density.
The variety of vibrations at different intensities keeps the body needing to react, making the muscle quickly gain strength. Because of this, Power Plate rehabilitation is becoming very popular, as it can decrease the recovery time as the muscles build more quickly.
Can power plates increase metabolism and help to burn fat?
As muscles require more calories to be maintained, the more muscle you have the faster your metabolism.
Can power plates help improve blood circulation and immune function?
The high levels at which muscles contract increases blood circulation and stimulates the lymph glands. Increased flow of lymph fluid through your body increases the immune function of the body.
Do the power plates vibrations help with stronger bones?
Studies have found that the vibrations can help in increasing bone mineral density.
One study published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise stated that “vibrations helped increasing lumbar bone mineral density and leg strength in women”.
Do power plates help with production of helpful hormones ?
With whole body vibrations, your body produces increased levels of Human Growth Hormones. These hormones help in repairing and regenerating damaged muscles and bone tissues.
Vibration therapy also has been shown to help reduce the production of Cortisol, which is a hormone that is responsible for Stress and produces hormones like Serotonin that is responsible for the feelings of well-being and happiness. This explains the better sleep resulting after they have a workout session with the Power-Plate Machine.
