There are many great strength training exercises for the upper body that can be done on a 3G Cardio 6.0, 5.0 or 3.0 vibration machine. In fact, just about anything that can be done with traditional weightlifting can be done 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 strength training exercises for the chest and arms that can be done on a 3G Cardio vibration trainer:
Push Up – Kneel in front of the 3G Cardio® AVT™ Vibration Machine, placing hands on the vibration platform shoulder width apart with fingers facing inward. With a straight back and strong abdomen, push off the vibration plate platform. This exercise will strengthen chest, shoulder muscles and triceps. For variation, try straightening your legs and lifting your knees. Vary width of hand placement by going wide (more back and chest used) or narrow (more triceps used).
Triceps Dip – Facing away from the vibration plate, firmly grip the edge and push upwards. Now bend your arms slightly and lower your hips toward the plate, squeezing your shoulder blades together. You should feel the tension in your upper arms and shoulders. For variation, repeat the exercise with your legs straight. Vary hand position in and out to train the triceps in different ways.
Biceps Curl – Position your toes slightly under the edge of the 3G Cardio® AVT™ Vibration Machine platform for support and hold the straps tightly at waist height. Knees should be slightly bent, back and wrists kept straight. Pull your arms upward. You should feel tension in the shoulders and biceps. Adjust the length of the straps to train the biceps in different ways. Focus on using just biceps to isolate them more.
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.
