16 Jan 3G Cardio Vibration training machines improve muscle strength, shorten recovery time
The 3G Cardio AVT 5.0 Vibration Machine and 3G Cardio AVT 6.0 Vibration Machine offer the quality, durability and performance necessary to challenge even the most advanced athlete.
Vibration machines not only improve muscle strength and tone much more effectively than traditional exercise methods, they have also been proven to shorten recovery time after workouts.
Depending on the settings and how one positions themselves on the 3G Cardio Vibration Machine, they can perform strength training exercises, stretch or even receive a top-rate massage.
Originally built for Russian cosmonauts to keep their muscle tone while in zero gravity conditions, today everyone from athletes, movie stars to the couple next door are using Accelerate Vibration Training (AVT), also known as Whole Body Vibration Training (WBV).
The 3G Cardio Vibration machines stimulate muscle fibers anywhere from 25-50 times per second, giving one an incredible workout without the wear and tear on their joints and ligaments they’d experience if they were to get anywhere near as thorough a workout using other means.
In fact, those are two of the very biggest goals of the designers at 3G Cardio of their vibration machines: To build strength without enduring joint stress and to optimize recovery time.
When muscles fibers are broken down, it creates more blood flow, and in turn more oxygen is available in muscles. This increases one’s endurance and the increased muscle contractions also mean that more lactic acid is flushed out.
Here’s what two NBA trainers had to say about vibration training to www.thatsfit.com.
“I love it and use it a ton,” said Steve Hess, the Denver Nuggets’ strength and conditioning coach. “It’s huge as a pre-game or pre-practice warm-up.”
Aaron Nelson, the Phoenix Suns’ athletic trainer, has a vibration training machine in his team’s weight room.
“It’s a great training tool,” said Nelson.
Under Nelson’s directions, the exercises the Suns players commonly perform on the vibration training machines are: foam rolling, static and dynamic stretching, single-leg squat touchdowns, single-leg balance and reaches, step-up-to balance, and three forms of pushups, with feet on a stability ball and with rotation).
Vibration machines are so effective one doesn’t just train on them, but can use them for pregame warm-ups and post-game massages.
A study done by the University of Hull in the United Kingdom cited by Nelson showed that soccer players who used Power Plate for a warm-up at halftime experienced only a 3 percent decrease in strength performance for the second half, compared to 6 percent for a normal halftime resting period. Jump performance did not decrease, whereas a normal resting period lessened it by 7 percent.
Suns players perform two to three sets of squats for one minute at halftime of their home games.
