Before I tell you about 3G Cardio, here’s a quick lesson on the benefits of vibration training. It’s used today by everyone from most of the NFL and elite college football programs, to NBA players, Olympic athletes and celebrities, the average couple next door and even rehab patients and senior citizens.Why is vibration training so popular and effective for basically people in all walks of life?
In a nutshell, vibration training machines create instability, which the body senses and then reflexively contracts muscle tissue involuntarily to stabilize and react to the stimuli. The result is all three types of skeletal muscles are instantaneously called into service because of the near-immediate level of fatigue. No longer is there a “progression of muscle fatigue” as in normal strength training when it takes the No. 7-10 reps of a set, for example, to finally “tire” the muscles.
AVT, also known as Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV or WBVT), can work up to 95 percent of the muscle fibers, compared to as little as 20 percent with standard equipment.
Depending on a person’s health and fitness level, they can safely and easily adjust the time and strength of the vibrations. Working your muscles to fatigue through vibration training enables a person to exercise with much greater ease and with less risk than traditional methods, such as loading up a bar with weights or putting strain on joints and ligaments by lifting machine weights.
Accelerated Vibration Training can help increase bone density, which decreases the chances for osteoporosis. It can help decrease pain and improve joint function and stability. Senior citizens find 3G Cardio Vibration Machines especially helpful in these regards because they’re able to suddenly exercise their muscles in ways that hadn’t been possible – oftentimes for decades.
If you are trying to build a high-end, elite home gym then give owning a vibration training machine serious consideration. Vibration training is the fastest growing segment of the fitness industry. Vibration training machines are the most versatile piece of fitness equipment there is in a gym.
