Vibration Therapy engages fast-twitch muscles which use fat for energy (unlike large muscle groups which use sugars for energy). Simply standing on the vibration machine will help build muscle mass, increase bone density, aid in circulation & digestion, and assist in draining the lymphatic system. 10 minutes of vibration therapy is said to be as effective as 50 minutes at the gym. Madonna uses the exact same machine!!
When a muscle fiber is stretched, it contracts by reflex (stretch reflex). By simply standing barefoot on the machine, vibration is generated and sent through your body, which passively stretches your muscles. This causes millions of muscle contractions, which increases muscle tone and size. As muscle density increases, your metabolic rate goes up, as an increase in muscle mass requires more energy.
Because whole body vibration is a “passive” exercise, neither perspiration nor lactic acid is generated. What this means for you is no increase in your heart rate, no need for a shower after, and no achy muscles the following day! Research has demonstrated that a 10-minute whole body vibration workout, barefoot but in the clothes you are wearing during your busy day, delivers the equivalent of an hour of weight training in a gym.
However, unlike the time-consuming health club workouts that concentrate on a specific muscle group, whole body vibration exercises muscles in the entire body. Try it to believe it! Take the Challenge
