15 Nov Part I: What do the experts think about accelerated vibration training?
“If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”
We’ve all heard that expression countless times, especially when it comes to “magic” fitness contraptions that promise effortless weight loss.
Well, for once there is a product that actually lives up to the hype it promises users: the 3G Cardio 5 AVT Accelerated Vibration Training Plate and 3G Cardio 6 AVT Accelerated Vibration Training Plate both work in an up-and-down motion to accelerate training.
The accelerated vibration training platform, which looks a little like a big doctor’s office scale from a distance, stimulates the body’s reflexes to result in alternating muscle contractions and relaxations.
While holding traditional exercise positions – such as squat, bent over row, lunge and shoulder press, stretches and massage poses – the two super-power A-C (alternating current) motors on the 3G Cardio 6 AVT Accelerated Vibration Training Plate machine (one super-powered motor on the 3G Cardio 5 AVT Accelerated Vibration Training Plate ) will send vibrations that travel into the activated muscle groups.
In addition to fast-twitch muscle fibers being stimulated using the innovative 3G Cardio 5 AVT Accelerated Vibration Training Plate and 3G Cardio 6 AVT Accelerated Vibration Training Plate, weight loss can be achieved, cardio health and circulation improved, bone health increased, anabolic hormones secreted and reflex pathways awakened.
So what do the experts think of this technology?
Cedric Bryant, chief exercise physiologist for the American Council on Exercise, told Time.com that vibration training takes work, but recommended it to enhance just about anyone’s fitness level.
“This is not a magic bullet that helps people lose weight without doing anything,” he said. “If you are a healthy individual, (vibration training) should be a supplement to a sensible diet and exercise program.”
