01 Apr 3G Cardio Vibration training great for baseball, softball
Baseball and softball seasons are now under way at all levels.
Did you know a great way to build strength and also improve flexibility is through accelerated vibration training?
There are an abundance of exercises that a baseball or softball player can perform on a 3G Cardio AVT machine to strengthen the upper body and lower body, improving power and bat speed at the plate, strength for throwing and overall speed and agility.
Trainers advise using vibration training in conjunction with traditional strength training methods, such as free weights or functional trainers.
Here are some of the countless exercises that can be performed on a 3G Cardio Vibration Trainer for baseball and softball: Regular squat, Lunge, Calf Raises, Push Up, Triceps Dip, Biceps Curl (use strap attachments), Bent Over Row (use strap attachments), Front Raise (use strap attachments) and Abdominal Crunch.
Vibration training also helps with another extremely important aspect of playing baseball and softball: stretching.
Baseball and softball players are at greater risk for arm injuries and pulled leg muscles because of the explosive movements that are required in the sport.
More and more trainers are making vibration training an important part of regular conditioning programs to improve flexibility.
