If you need an effective exercise routine that will produce astounding results fast, why not try a session on one of the Power Plates at Wildmoor Spa Gym. These are machines that use vibrations to intensify your workout, helping to stimulate and contract your muscles at an increased rate. By activating many different muscle groups at the same time, and greatly increasing the number of muscle contractions per second, Power Plate machines can help you develop a toned body with minimal cellulite, and all in half the time you would usually expect. It is the perfect solution for those who want a body with greater muscle definition, but have a limited amount of time to achieve it. Image source: powernouse.com.au
During exercise your muscles contract once or twice a second, but when you use a Power Plate machine, the contractions occur between 30 and 50 times a second. This enhances the effectiveness of your exercise at toning your body, and greatly reduces the amount of time it takes to see results.
Other benefits of using a Power Plates machine for your exercise are that it is low impact, and therefore does not present any danger to joints or bones. In fact, Power Plate exercise has been known to increase bone mineral density, helping to protect against osteoporosis. As well as toning your muscles, it will help to strengthen them, with the added bonus that your joints will be better protected from the possibility of injury. With better toning and definition, you will also likely see a reduction in any cellulite that has built up over time.
For many people, the major reasons for using a Power Plate machine are that it is effective, very easy to use and extremely fast working. So, what exactly does a Power Plate session entail?
Power Plate Exercises
Using a Power Plate machine to exercise involves standing on the machine, selecting a vibration intensity and going through a series of positions, holding each one for a short time before moving on to the next. Beginners are advised to start gradually, and increase the frequency of sessions, and the intensity of the vibrations, bit by bit.
The vibration intensity determines the number of contractions your muscles will experience each second, ranging between 30 and 50, with the lower number being better for beginners. There is a suggested sequence of positions that has been created to maximise the effectiveness of the machine being able to work the key groups of muscles. Some of the positions involve standing, other sitting, kneeling or bending on the machine. In some positions you are required to place a leg or arm on the machine. The important thing is to hold the position correctly for about 30 seconds before moving on to the next. In this way your quads, glutes, hamstrings, calves, stomach, waist muscles, buttocks, shoulder muscles and more will experience an intense and powerful toning and strengthening exercise. Image
