Whole Body Vibration Training Can Improve Your Overall Health

We are all looking to maximize the efficiency of our workouts. In our fast-paced world of places to go, things to do, and people to see, time is the commodity. Now, there appears to be a way that many can dramatically increase the potency of their workouts in less time!

Whole Body Vibrational Training (WBVT) has the person exercising standing on a platform that literally vibrates. The vibrating motions encompass the three-dimensional gamut – vertical, horizontal and sagittal or front to back. It is these motions that cause the workout to be so much more potent.

Several studies have concluded that a scant 12 minutes of Whole Body Vibrational Training is equal to 1.5 hours of weight training! This means saving time and maximizing each motion during a workout.

These same studies have found WBVT can help:

  • Increase muscle strength
  • Reduce pain
  • Increase hormone secretion
  • Decrease cortisol levels
  • Increase fat loss
  • Reduce cellulite
  • Improve circulation
  • Increase flexibility and mobility

WBVT increases the gravitational forces on your body, generating forces from 2 to 6 Gs, depending on the settings. Because of this, each muscle in our bodies reacts in a constant state of “micro adjustment.” They contract reflexively in response to the vibrations. WBVT engages up to 98 percent of your muscle fibers, including the “fast” and “super-fast” muscle fibers. This means you reap increased benefits in a shorter time.

The variety of vibrational directions also provides a number of benefits. The up-and-down movement works on muscle tone while the left-to-right and front-to-back motions help to improve balance and coordination. The multi-directional vibrations also promote bone regeneration in much the same way weight-bearing exercises do.

There are some people precluded from using WBVT. The American Council on Exercise warns WBVT is contraindicated for people with electronic implants (read: pacemakers), pregnant women, and people with a history of seizures, thrombosis and/or tumors.

If time is the tyrant for you when it comes to working out – and you don’t fall into the group precluded from using WBVT – you should check it out.
