Called “the most versatile piece of fitness equipment in the gym” by numerous trainers, vibration trainers create instability when users stand on the platform.
The body senses the vibrations and reflexively contracts muscle tissue involuntarily to stabilize and react to the stimuli. The result is all three types of skeletal muscles are instantaneously called into service because of the near-immediate level of fatigue. No longer is there a “progression of muscle fatigue” as in normal strength training.
AVT, also known as Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV or WBVT), can work up to 95 percent of the muscle fibers, compared to as little as 20 percent with standard equipment. You can do strength training exercises on a vibration training machine, as well as get a great stretch and even massage.
There are new companies producing vibration machines monthly, if not weekly. That means there are a lot of choices on the market, but unfortunately many of those choices are bad ones.
When comparing vibration training machines, it’s important to know that you get what you pay for. A small, light machine is not going to have the power or support to properly train on.
Here are some tips on how to shop for vibration training machines:
We at 3G Cardio recommend shopping around at specialty fitness stores and trying different machines.
