Power of Vibration Machines for Weight Loss
A Vibration Machine may be perfect piece of equipment if you are looking to lose weight, but want to do so in the comfort of your home! Vibration Machines are effective without being time consuming, strenuous on the body, or inconvenient. Read below about how a vibration machine could help you to lose weight today...
How Do I Lose Weight with a Vibration Machine?
In it's most basic form, the oscillating vibrations from the Vibration Machine transmit energy to the body which causes the muscles to contract and relax. Just in the same way as during normal exercise, the contraction and subsequent relaxation of the muscles burns energy. A vibration machine causes this reaction from the muscles multiple times in each second, so it doesn't take long before your whole body is tingling and warm, just as you would experience during a high intensity workout.
In traditional strength and power training, the load on the muscles is determined by the weight lifted. When using the Vibration Platform, a specific frequency and amplitude of vibration is chosen and the movement of the plate loads the limbs. The vibrations stimulate a reflex contraction within the muscle which leads to a high level of muscle activation and exertion. The superior muscle-activation that the vibration machine stimulates compared to conventional training, means that less time is required to work muscle groups completely and the benefits are wider ranging than those achieved by ordinary exercise.
When you combine this type of energy-burning exercise with healthy eating, its a powerful combination! By burning more energy than you consume, you will begin to burn fat from the body's fat stores.
Optimal Settings on the Vibration Machines for Weight Loss
Setting the vibration machine In order to achieve maximum results, the individual heart rate is used as a guideline for setting the intensity of the vibration. The body begins burning fat at approximately 65% of the maximum pulse rate. While exercising, the pulse rate should generally be at 60 - 70% in the first few weeks. Within a few weeks of undertaking a routine of 3 workouts per week of 30 minutes each, the intensity can be increased to the optimal fat burning rate of 70 85% of your maximum pulse rate.
As a rule of thumb, the following formula is commonly used:
Maximum pulse rate: 220 minus your age in years = your individual maximum pulse rate per min
Minimum pulse rate: Max PR x 0.7 = minimum pulse rate per min
Highest pulse rate for exercising: Max PR x 0.85 = highest pulse rate per min.
With vibration technology not only will you burn fat, but other benefits include:
- increased flexibility
- strengthening and toning muscles
- muscle rejuvenation
- improved balance and coordination
- improved posture
Is a Vibration Machine Right for Me?
Quick and easy
If you are time-poor and don't have enough hours in the day to go to the gym... One of the great things about a vibration machine is how fast and easily you can do a workout. Workouts can take as little as 15 minutes per day, just a few times a week to feel the benefits without the need to strain and exhaust the body.
Low impact, low exertion workout
With whole body vibration technology exercise easy and simple, with no great amount of effort or stress on your body required! No longer do you have to feel aching and sore from struggling through exercise after exercise just to work up a sweat. Whole body vibration is a low-impact exercise and requires minimal effort, you can simply stand or sit on the machine to feel the benefits. Work your way up to different poses and postures the more comfortable you feel with the machine and as strength and flexibility improves.
A favourite of our customer's who suffer from sore and aching legs, ankles and feet is to simply lay flat on the floor with the vibration plate positioned under the lower calves to feet. Such a great way to relieve and soothe this commonly problem area.
Any fitness level
The beauty of a vibration platform is that they cater to such a broad range of fitness levels, from pro-athletes to those suffering from chronic pain who are unable to partake in normal exercise. There is an infinite number of postures and exercises you can do with a vibration machine by simply combining traditional exercises with the vibration machine. A simple squat or lunge turns into a more powerful whole body exercise. Even simply sitting or standing on a vibration machine will produce noticeable results.
Weight Loss Exercises with a Vibration Machine
Beginners Weight Loss Exercises
A Vibration Machine is perfect for someone who is transitioning from sedentary (minimal exercise) lifestyle. When just getting started with a Vibration Machine you can simply stand on the machine for 15 minutes per day, or try easy/non-strenuous exercises like bending the knees or stepping on and off the plate. This alone is enough to get you started and is a great way to ease yourself into the routine. Some examples of more beginner exercises below:
Intermediate - Advanced Weight Loss Exercises
As you grow more familiar with the machine and your fitness levels increase you can begin to do more aerobic and strengthening style exercises on the machine for a more intense workout. You can also begin to target more specific or problem areas of the body, by doing exercises that work the muscles in the area. This will help to tone the area but will also mean that fat is burnt even while sedentary. Some examples are below:
Vibration machines are also good for stretching and increasing flexibility which will give you a wider range of motion during exercises. Simple yoga poses are great for increasing flexibility.
See how Vitality 4 Life customer's are using Vibration Machines to lose weight....
"Being overweight I had hopes of it helping me to lose some kilo's. Along with an ""on and off controlled eating diet"" (I am hopeless with diets...) I began using my Vibro Slim. Just 10 minutes 2 times per day on level 4 and I would sometimes put my Vibro Slim at my lounge chair and just put my feet on it as I watched TV. (lazy exercising I call it...). Two weeks later I stepped onto the scales and was jubilant to see I had lost kilos. All in all my family are bragging of their successes and I personally have lost 8 kilos and my stomach size is reducing. I demonstrated to my wife a couple nights ago how easily my work shorts fall off me without undoing the buttons... I recommend Vibro Slim to my clients and friends, it seems, almost every day, I am so pleased with my Vibro Slim thank you Vitality 4 Life".
