28 Feb 3G Cardio AVT exercise tips: Squat
Any exercise you can do with traditional weightlifting equipment can be performed on the award-winning 3G Cardio® AVT™ 3.0, 5.0 or 6.0 Vibration Machines. In fact, due to the incredible results that can be achieved through vibration training, results on a 3G Cardio vibration machine are often better and achieved more safely.
One of the most basic and important exercises is the squat. To perform a squat on a 3G Cardio® AVT™ Vibration Machine stand with feet shoulder-width apart on the vibration platform.
While keeping your back straight and knees slightly bent in a squat position, gently squeeze the leg muscles. When done properly you will feel tension in the quadriceps, buttocks and back as the whole body vibration training sends vibrations through your muscles.
Keep good posture with your back straight as you hold the squat – build up from holding the squat for 15 seconds to 30 or 60. If you lean forward a little bit the quadriceps will be emphasized more, if you lean back hamstrings will be used more. Keep your body weight on heels.
Squats are important to perform for people of all ages for a variety of reasons. A squat is a total body exercises that can release muscle-building hormones, it improves core strength and flexibility and even reduces chances of injury because it strengthens muscles around the knees and hips.
The 3G Cardio Accelerated Vibration Training AVT™ Exercise App that can be downloaded free to your I-pad from iTunes can help train you on exactly how to use the machine. The App is broken into three workout options – strength training, stretching or massage.
Simply touch the program you want and it will pull up videos with audio that will take you through a complete program.
Vibration training works by skipping the traditional “Progression of muscle fatigue” by almost immediately calling into action all fast- and slow-twitch muscles as the body reacts to the instability of the vibrations as you’re on the platform.
