04 Jun Elite sports teams, athletes use vibration training to gain extra edge
Updated 6/4/18 – More and more elite athletes are turning to vibration training to gain an extra edge.
Vibration training machines such as the 3G Cardio AVT 3.0, 5.0 and 6.0 machines are becoming commonplace at training facilities. From high schools, to colleges, to the pros and even Olympians, vibration machines are being used to enhance training.
If you watch interviews on TV or the Internet that are filmed in a sports training facility, chances are you’ll see a row of vibration trainers in the background. Or maybe even the athlete will be shown using one during the telecast.
Apolo Ohno, Kobe Bryant and the Denver Broncos are just some of the athletes and teams who use vibration training machines.
Why is this training method gaining such popularity among athletes and teams who spare no expense to find the latest, greatest ways to reach their maximum potential?
Vibration training consists of performing exercises while standing, sitting or lying on a vibrating platform.
The unstable platform activates and quickly fatigues the muscles.
3G Cardio Vibration Machines increase the ACCELERATION – rather than LOAD in traditional strength training with weights – through the rapid movement of the platform. This causes the muscles to fire faster than any other type of exercise. The faster your muscles tire, the faster they fatigue. That means you can complete a total body workout in less than 15 minutes.
According to some studies, up to 95 percent of the fibers in a muscle group are activated during vibration training compared to just 40-60 percent of fibers during traditional strength or resistance training. It also stimulates and challenges musculoskeletal structures (bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments) as they adapt to the vibrating movement.
Vibration training is a great way to increase strength and flexibility, as well as helping to increase serotonin, a hormone associated with relaxation – and circulation, which results in an improved flow in the lymphatic system.
If the very best athletes in the world are using machines such as the award-winning 3G Cardio AVT trainers, imagine what they can do for the average every day person.
