Acceleration Training™ on Power Plate® equipment offers a host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of other measurable outcomes: such as increased muscle strength and flexibility, improved range of motion, decreased cellulite, increased bone mineral density, reduced pain and soreness and faster recovery.
High tech meets high style
Power Plate machines use the principles of Acceleration Training™ to stimulate the body’s natural response to vibration. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, enhancing overall performance in sessions as short as 15 minutes a day, 3 times a week.
A true 3D workout
Acceleration Training with Power Plate machines creates instability in the human body, as with each vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions, multiple times per second. Furthermore, these contractions must work in multiple dimensions as the Power Plate machines actually oscillate in all three planes, exactly as the human body is designed to do. The net result is an incredible improvement in force production, or strength and power.
Turn Belly Fat to Belly Flat.
Recent studies have shown that Acceleration Training offers a 57% improvement in weight loss when compared to conventional exercise and diet alone.
Train like an astronaut.
While you aren’t going into space anytime soon, you can probably relate to those that do. Spending time in near zero-g causes bone mineral density to decrease and muscles to atrophy similar to when we age. The Russian Cosmonauts first used vibration for rehab and you can enjoy the benefits as well.
Pump it up.
The good, the bad and the gone.
Vibrations stimulate the muscle-pump-effect and cause an increase in blood-flow with an improvement of transport capacity for:
- Oxygen / Carbon dioxide
- Vitality components (micro nutrients)
- Energy components (macro nutrients)
- Derivates and waste (i.e. lactic acid)
Explosive power, accelerated.
Acceleration training on a Power Plate stimulates fast-twitch muscle fibers and athletes who use Power Plate machines over time experience a dramatic increase in explosive strength, motor learning, muscular endurance and overall agility. Need to light a fire? In just minutes, range of motion and stability can increase, providing a perfect warm-up.
