The Benefits of Using Vibration Exercise Machines
One time exercise, from toning muscles to improving strength and bone density. All this you can get in just 10 minutes, 3-4 times a week. What you have to do is add a vibration exercise machine to your workout area. This technique of exercise was introduced by Russians Space Program. In space with zero gravity muscles deteriorate and the body even loses the bone density. To fight this, the Russians introduced vibration exercise.
These vibrating exercise machines are of different types and produce different vibration effects like:
· You can experience a natural type of vibration which is the side vibration.
· Then, there is the tri-planer which is among the more popular ones. This results in horizontal and vertical vibrations. In this machine, the vibrating platform is set in a particular angle.
· Then, there is the horizontal vibration machine. This is the least expensive of all machines and only produces horizontal vibrations.
These vibration exercise machines work like the person has to get onto a platform; he can stand, sit, lay down or even focus the platform on certain body parts. This platform creates a vibration, which is sent through the body. In response to this vibration, the muscles will contract which results in causing tendons to stretch, and increases blood flow and improving blood oxygenation. The most important work that this vibration exercise performs is that it strengthens and tones the muscles without letting the person make an effort on the person’s part. Since the vibrations get sent through the entire body, all the muscle groups are affected. Vibration exercise reduces the amount of cortisol in the body more than a normal sweating exercise. It also prevents stress and even tension related to pain. Anyone can use this equipment whether he is young or old or a beginning exerciser. Following are some of the fat burning roles performed by this machine:
Supports Lean Muscles – The rapid vibrations of the machine help in maintaining and building lean muscle mass in the body. By boosting lean muscle mass it burns fat not just during the workout but also throughout the day.
Boosts Human Growth Hormone (HGH) – Exercising on the machine boosts Human Growth Hormone by 361%. HGH level decreases in the body as we get older, and this causes weakening of muscles and an increase in weight gain.
Lowers Stress Hormone- Higher levels of stress hormone promote fat gain, chiefly around the belly. Vibration exercise reduces the circulation of this hormone level by 30% which helps in losing weight.
Improves Blood Circulation- Vibration helps in proper distribution of oxygen throughout the body, which promotes the circulation of blood and oxygen.
This Vibrating exercise machine not only helps in losing weight but also provide various added benefits. As it is always advised that before starting any heavy exercise consult to your doctor. Pregnant ladies, heart patients are not advised to perform vibration exercise technique, people having a pacemaker, who have just had surgery, having hip or knee implants, diabetic or epilepsy patients, migraine patients are always advised to consult with the doctor before using this technique. It is beneficial for the patients suffering from osteoporosis, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke victims also. With all this, it does appear that vibration exercise equipment can be beneficial to your health. After weighing the factors, you can make the decision about whether or not it would be a helpful addition to your home gym.
