Younger, more physically active men are less likely to choose whole-body vibration as a way to maintain physical fitness and well-being than strength training, weight lifting and other sports activities. This does not mean that vibration machines should only be used by women, or that they should only be used by elderly people with problems with balance and circulation.
Vibrating plates allow one to maximize their workout. They can target not only the major, superficial muscle groups but also the smaller, deeper muscle groups with intricate movements that excite the whole body. This makes it possible to maximize the effectiveness of your workout. This type of exercise can help you tone your muscles and build a stronger body. This type of exercise can help you lose extra fat and reduce your body fat percentage.
Vibration training places a load on the muscles because of the hyper gravity generated by the platform. All forces that stimulate or activate muscles are directed in an upward direction, rather than in a downward direction. This makes the exercise seem easier and gentler for the bones and joints. It can still be very challenging if the machine has high frequencies or G-forces.
Vibration platforms are safer than weight lifting. If you do the exercises correctly, your posture will improve, your muscle definition will increase, and your body will be stronger. This type of exercise also has additional benefits such as better circulation, lymph drainage, stronger bones and improved balance.
Let’s first look at the benefits of full-body vibration for young and healthy men. What can WBV do for them? Is it something that could motivate them to include this type of training in their daily routines, along with the strength and cardio training they already do regularly?
1. It Is Easier to Gain Weight And Size When Muscles Are Engaged And Recruited More Effectively
Although vibration of the entire body won’t make you appear large or bulky, it can stimulate your muscles and improve your body composition. It stimulates muscles and makes it easier to gain bulk. Additionally, it makes muscle fibers stronger which leads to a toned appearance.
Exercise on a vibration plate can influence testosterone, and growth hormone, and may increase muscle strength and power. The effects are similar to explosive power training. Research has shown that vibration plates can influence testosterone and growth hormone levels in males.
When the machine transmits energy pulses, your muscle reflexes will be stimulated and your muscle fibers will contract or relax involuntarily. The vibrations coming from the platform will have an impact on the intensity of muscle contraction. This is because vibrations from vibrating exercise machine can cause your joints and muscles to work harder to stabilize your body, maintain your balance, coordinate your movements, and complete the many exercises. This causes greater muscle activation and energy expenditure.
2. A Lower Body Fat Percentage and A Higher Rate Of Energy Consumption
WBV machines have been proven to be effective in preventing the accumulation of excess weight, especially in the abdominal and core areas. You don’t have to do whole-body vibrations to lose weight. However, this type of exercise can help you look toned and beautiful. This type of exercise is known to help lower body fat and improve body composition.
Your body will use its internal energy reserves more effectively because the workouts are short but intense. Another benefit is the fact that you will feel more energetic after the workouts. After a rigorous WBV training program, you won’t feel exhausted. Instead, you will feel rejuvenated and positive.
Whole-body vibration can be used after a workout or during aerobic exercise to increase energy expenditure and reduce calories. For the best results, combine whole-body vibration and running for 10 minutes if you love running.
3 Using WBV Means More Power and Better Performance
Vibration training improves strength and power, which can help you in everyday activities as well as in sports events. Although it takes time to build muscle mass and stamina and improve athletic performance, vibration training can help you see an increase in power or your ability to generate force fast even after only one session. Vibration training stimulates your nervous system which stimulates your muscles.
If you want to increase your vertical jump, sprint speed or distance with a ball, it is a good idea to use WBV before a competition. It is also a great way to improve your balance and reduce the chance of getting hurt from falls.
The machine transmits vibration pulses throughout your body. Part of the energy is absorbed into tissues, converted to heat, and rhythmic muscle contractions. These are positive effects. This will make your muscles and joints more flexible and make your body more ready to function due to the increased blood flow and lymph.
While the overall results of high-speed vibration are similar to other types of weight-bearing exercises, it allows for faster and more effective growth-stimulating muscle activation. This method is easier to use and provides better results. Additionally, WBV takes less time to recover than traditional weight lifting methods.
