14 Sep Strength training tips for shoulders, back on 3G Cardio Vibration machine
The 3G Cardio 6.0, 5.0 or 3.0 vibration machine can help you get a great shoulder and back workout. If it can be done with traditional weight lifting, it can be done more efficiently and faster on a 3G Cardio vibration trainer.
Rapid movement of the 3G Cardio Vibration Training platform causes the muscles to fire faster than any other type of exercise as you perform static or dynamic movements on the platform. Whereas traditional strength training might only work as little as 20 percent of the muscle fibers, the progression of muscle fatigue achieved with the 3G vibration trainers allows people to use up to 95 percent of their muscle fibers during a workout.Here are some examples of vibration training strength training exercises for the shoulders and back that can be done on a 3G Cardio vibration trainer:
Bent Over Row – Stand in front of the 3G Cardio® AVT™ Vibration Machine. Pull the belts upward on the side of your body. Push your chest out and shoulder-blades together. Pull your arms backwards in a smooth motion and you should feel tension in your upper back and shoulder area. Vary hand position in and out to train the triceps in different ways.
Adjust the length of the straps and the angle in which you are pulling in order to train the back in different ways.
Front Raise Exercise – Stand in front of the 3G Cardio® AVT™ Vibration Machine, legs shoulder width apart and raise both arms horizontally in front of your torso. Keeping your back straight and abdomen strong; pull the straps upward. For variation, perform the same exercise from a standing position on the vibration platform. This is a great way to strengthen the rotator cuffs, but don’t go past parallel. Keep back straight and eyes straight ahead.
Shoulder -Position the body in a horizontal line parallel with the 3G Cardio® AVT™ Vibration Machine. Hands should be shoulder width apart, legs and back straight, head raised. Using slow and controlled movements push your slightly bent arms toward the vibration platform and then return to the starting position. This exercise is perfect for shoulders and upper arms.
Lattisimus Dip – Place your hands on the mat, shoulder width apart. Keeping wrists and forearms straight gently push off the handles. It is important to keep the hips straight and to push the shoulders downward. This exercise promotes muscular arms, shoulders and abdomen. Try doing the same exercise but this time keep your legs straight. Vary width of hand placement to slightly change workout.
