The latest trend in all those alluring weight loss schemes is “working out while really not working!” Well, is it true? Does it work? We delved deep into the intricacies of such a passive workout and now VIBHAlife brings to you a new service called VIBHA body vibration service.
What is it?
Body vibration service belongs to the category of passive exercise and is popularly known as whole body vibration or Power plate exercise. The whole body vibration machine comprises of a platform on which the client is made to stand while the machine produces vibrations which eventually provides stimulation to the body. The vibration energy is thereby transferred to the body, activating every cells, muscles, bones and soft tissues of the body. The effect is similar to that of weight-bearing exercise resulting in reduced stress on the joints, ligaments and tendons.
How does it work?
The individual or the client has to stand on the platform of the machine with knees bent at about a 30 degree angle, with the surface beneath their feet keeps vibrating at a rate of 30 times per second.
During this vibration, the body thinks that it is falling which leads to an activation of the stress reflex causing an extremely rapid muscle contraction. These muscular contractions are the major factor responsible for all the benefits which are obtained from this type of exercise.
The machine works with harmonic motion using regulated up and down movement with large amplitudes and utilizes linear motion which moves the platform forwards and backwards and side to side thus helping in building the muscle strength. Thus, this technique helps the individual in burning calories along with improving muscle strength.
What does the research say?
Several studies have been conducted to validate the benefits of body vibration service. A study conducted on post-menopausal women concluded that body vibration service resulted in almost 1% increase in hip bone density and increased muscle strength. Another study has found out that elderly people who were not able to participate in traditional exercise were benefited from using the body vibration exercise machine and experienced muscle strengthening and better speed of movement and flexibility.
All these researches also agree that body vibration cannot completely replace the conventional exercise because conventional exercise is an effective and completely natural means of building bones.
