Enjoy the benefits of whole body vibration using the LifeSpan VP1000 Vibration Plate. Its dual-motion design encompasses an up/down pivoting system and a secondary front/back pivot. The result is a multi-dimensional platform movement that enhances the benefits you'll receive from whole body vibration, including improved muscle strength, balance and flexibility. In addition to standing in an upright position, there are many other uses of the vibration plate to increase your physical activity and improve your strength, including calf stretches, lunges, squats, pushups, sit-up twists and tricep dips. Assembly is required.
How It Works
Whole body vibration is achieved by being on a platform that vibrates at a high frequency, causing your muscles to contract and stretch to maintain balance without your brain being actively involved. The rapid involuntary reflex intensifies even the simplest exercises. This fast repetition of your muscles reacting along with the controlled low impact to the bones creates the growth and strength.
The platform's design provides multi-directional vibration, with movement up and down, side to side, and front to back.
Enhance your workout routine with the VP-1000.
The primary use of a vibration plate requires that you simply stand on the vibration plate in proper position while the vibration plate moves. Duration and frequency are important elements to consider in using a vibration plate. If you're physically fit, vibration exercise sessions should last no more than 15 minutes. If you're just beginning an exercise program, limit your time to 10 minutes per session. Whole body vibration should be used 2-3 times a week to supplement your cardiovascular workouts, with adequate time in-between sessions to recuperate.
About Whole Body Vibration
Vibration technology is relatively new to the fitness industry but the technology was developed in the 1960s for Russian cosmonauts to prevent muscle atrophy and loss of bone density due to the lack of gravity in space. This proven technology is now used by elite athletes, those rehabilitating from an injury, and those interested in expanding their exercise regiment to take advantage of the health benefits achieved by using whole body vibration.
