A solid and thorough upper body stretch can be achieved on a 3G Cardio 6.0, 5.0 or 3.0 vibration machine, which can help improve mobility and prevent serious injuries.
Anyone who’s serious about physical fitness, or has participated in athletics should know what rehab is as it pertains to muscles, ligaments and tendons. Most likely, you’ve gone through some type of rehab at one time or another.
Rehabilitation describes specialized healthcare dedicated to improving, maintaining or restoring physical strength, cognition and mobility with maximized results.
Have you also heard of “prehab?” More and more coaches, trainers and athletes are focusing on ways to prevent potential injuries from happening.
More than half the NFL teams and many college football programs use vibration training and the benefits on soft tissue fibers of the muscles is a big reason why. Soft tissue therapy is an invaluable part of a training program, which will go a long ways toward preventing injuries, recovering faster and functional movements and performance.
Here are some examples of the upper body stretches you can do on a 3G Cardio Vibration Machine, which will could also be looked at as “prehab” exercises when done regularly and correctly:
Shoulder Stretch – Stand with your back to the 3G Cardio® AVT™ Vibration Machine and use your left hand to pull the strap slowly up to your buttocks. Your right hand should be placed on your head while pulling it slightly to the right. Reverse to stretch other shoulder.
Perform the exercise slowly and hold stretch for 5-10 seconds.
Pectoral Stretch – Sit with your back to the 3G Cardio® AVT™ Vibration Machine. Push down on the vibration plate platform behind your back so that your fingers grip the edges. By pushing your shoulders down you’ll stretch your chest and shoulders.
You may also gently pull the straps on either side for optimum results.
