23 Sep Power Plate machines are as good as advertised
We’ve often heard the saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”
However, with Power Plate machines more and more people are saying the machine is really as good as advertised.
By standing on what looks like a big plate and getting a workout through vibrations in 15 minutes or less, Power Plate can give people of all ages and fitness level outstanding results.
In Wednesday’s blog I introduced the Power Plate line with some general information. Today, it’s time to go more in depth on how Power Plate can improve someone’s fitness and well-being.
Through Acceleration Training with Power Plate, the company states, “The machine creates instability in the human body, as with each vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions, multiple times per second. Furthermore, these contractions must work in multiple dimensions as the Power Plate machines actually oscillate in all three planes, exactly as the human body is designed to do. The net result is an incredible improvement in force production, or strength and power.”
Basically, people are able to “optimally load” their frame while minimizing high impact, high load, and high stress factors. By using gravity, Power Plate machines make the body feel as though it “weighs” more every time acceleration forces increase.
Two key models available through AtHomeFitness.com are Power Plate my3 and Power Plate my5.
* Benefits for athletes – Power Plate is being used by more and more people to enhance their own training, or even as an alternative form. It is also an excellent way of warming up before moving on to other exercises, as the vibrations get fast-twitch muscle fibers firing. This over time can help athletes become more explosive.
* Benefits for senior citizens – Just an impressive are the results Power Plate can provide for older folks. The machines offer an excellent way to improve wellness by actually helping to prevent age-related muscle loss, bone density loss and even skin wrinkles.
Exercise can release seretonin, which helps us feel good and improve overall health. When seniors step on a Power Plate, they’ll unlock that “feel good” neurotransmitter.
And, Power Plate also improves muscle strength, flexibility and range of motion, while also increasing production of collagen, which creates tighter, more attractive skin
Don’t just take my word for it, or the many satisfied customers. Make it a point to stop into a specialty fitness store to try out a Power Plate machine today.
