What Are the Benefits of Using a Power Plate?
If you have ever come across someone using a Power Plate, you might have wondered, “How can Power Plate improve overall fitness?” Sound familiar? If yes, then the possibilities are that you have never incorporated a Power Plate in your workout regime.
The Power Plate gives your body a high-speed effective workout by exposing your body to rapid harmonic vibrations. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or seasoned athlete, the Power Plate’s whole-body vibration (WBV) technology stimulates muscle contractions in a highly controlled and compatible manner, allowing an individual to get better results in a much less time.
All you need to do is – take a suitable exercise position on Power Plate, do your exercise as you do on the floor, and let the Power Plate expedite your fitness results. Depending on your fitness level and medical conditions, you can do static or dynamic exercises on the Power Plate.
In conventional exercises, lifting heavy weights and doing planks and deadlifts are considered productive for your overall fitness when you do them for at least an hour or more a day. Bear in mind that, in regular exercises, muscles contract up to only one to two times per second. However, when exercises are performed using the Power Plate, your muscles contract up to 3000 times per minute. So, by integrating Power Plate with traditional exercises, you will experience dramatically better results in half the time.
Did you know spending even as little as 27-minutes twice or thrice a week on the Power Plate can improve your flexibility, balance, and muscle strength?
Power Plate is an all-in-one solution as you can use it for:
- Warming up (instead of using the treadmill)
- Cycling performance
- Any exercise that you can do on the floor right such as burpees, planks, pushups, deadlifts, etc.
What’s more, Power Plate speeds up muscle recovery by removing the lactic acid (that causes sore muscles). This makes Power Plate essential for top athletes and bodybuilders as they can work out much quicker.
Enlisted below are some advantages of using the medical-certified Power Plate. Read on to know.
- 1. Toned and Well-developed Muscles:
Power Plate is a vibration platform that vibrates at a certain frequency that forces your muscles to contract at a higher speed. If you are looking forward to making most of the Power Plate, use it to do all exercises that you do on the floor.
Furthermore, when you perform strength exercises on the vibration platform, vibrations applied from different angles will enhance your overall performance as up to 98 percent of your muscles (both Type 1 and Type 2) get activated at once, leading to muscle development.
- 2. Tougher Bones & Weight Loss:
With vibration training, you can increase and improve bone density and strength. Stronger bones are essential for your overall health and prevent you from diseases like osteopenia and osteoporosis. Besides, improving bone mass, you burn fat faster.
Thus, Power Plate training also helps you lose weight by helping you burn more than 170 calories in just a few minutes. One of the reasons for weight loss is also increased lymphatic flow.
Weight loss is highly beneficial for people with Obesity and Diabetes Type 2. These two health problems have become more prevalent around the world due to a sedentary lifestyle. Hence, anyone with obesity or Diabetes Type 2 (or both) can benefit from Power Plate training.
- 3. Improved Balance, Flexibility, and Coordination:
When performing traditional exercises, muscles contract only 1-2 times per second. However, with Power Plate, muscles contract up to 50 times per second.
Additionally, when you perform squats, lunges, push-ups, etc. on the Power Plate, your hip flexors and core get engaged and destabilize your body. Due to destabilization, your body will work harder, and the muscles nearby the joints will grow and become stronger. Within a couple of weeks, you will observe that your balance, flexibility, posture, gait, and coordination have immensely improved.
- 4. Enhanced Immunity and Blood Circulation:
When your muscles repeatedly contract and relax, the blow flow in the body also increases. Improved blood circulation ensures that your muscles are properly oxygenated. It eventually boosts the recovery process and rejuvenates the body.
Besides, enhancement in blood circulation leads to faster metabolic waste removal. Due to the stimulation of lymph glands, the lymph fluid better circulates throughout the body. As a result, more white blood cells get distributed to organs, boosting the overall immunity.
- 5. Better Mental Health:
Doing exercises on the Power Plate also leaves a powerful and positive effect on your mental health. During the workout on Power Plate, you get a boost of Dopamine and Serotonin (happiness hormones), and the levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) decrease. The massage (cooling down) leads to relaxation in the body and mind.
A routine whole-body vibration workout on the Power Plate helps boost the levels of happiness hormones, reduce stress, and improve sleep. Hence, exercising on Power Plate twice or thrice a week will improve your mental well-being, allowing you to focus and concentrate more on other aspects of life.
