Exercising with Power Plate
One of the things I do to stay healthy and fit is to make sure I exercise every single day. Aside from eating right and getting enough sleep, exercise keeps me trim and boosts my energy. Most of my workouts are done early in the morning in my home gym, with my personal trainer, Mary.
Yesterday, I used my newest Power Plate. It’s a great piece of exercise equipment that utilizes whole body vibration technology to activate more muscles and to intensify workouts. It works on all the different muscle groups to build strength, increase flexibility, and improve circulation - it even provides a massage at the end of my session. In fact, Power Plate is engineered to address many wellness and fitness needs, from restoring and maintaining optimal health to providing anti-aging treatments and physical rehabilitation. It’s an excellent exercising enhancing machine that can be used by adults of every age and ability.
I always enjoy using my Power Plate. Here are a few photos showing some of the movements I’ve incorporated into my routine over the years.
1 Here is my new Power Plate my7. I use it for a variety of different strength and tension exercises. It works by causing natural reflex muscle contractions to develop muscles, and improve circulation. It's a great way to enhance an exercise program. http://powerplate.com
2 Power Plate is digitally controlled, and the touchscreen panel is very easy to use. It has a variety of settings, coaching tips and more than 250-customized programs. Power Plates are not only in homes, but also in training facilities, health clubs and medical wellness centers.
3 Using a couple simple key strokes, Power Plate turns on its micro-vibration features with a frequency of about 30-to-50 contractions per second.
4 The platform comes with a very easy-to-understand poster showing all the many positions that can be used with the Power Plate machine. Beginners are encouraged to start with nine-minute programs on lowest frequencies and amplitude settings.
5 The Power Plate strengthens and stretches the muscles. Here, I worked on balance techniques.
6 The hand straps help to exercise my shoulders and arms. Power Plate also cuts workouts in half by accelerating workout intensity, which is great for anyone with a busy schedule.
7 Power Plate can be used for push-ups, planks and various stretches. Mary guided me through the exercises. It actually stimulates nearly 100-percent of the body's muscle mass and engages about 95-percent of muscle fibers.
8 Kneeling stretches help to increase and improve blood circulation. At up to 50-contractions per second, blood is moving to even the smallest blood vessels.
9 Power Plate provides stimulation to many of the core muscles of the body, which helps to improve flexibility, and relieve tension. Power Plate has scientifically proven to be effective in aiding bone density without adding extra load to the body.
10 Sharkey and Francesca looked less than excited about the exercise session. I think they were hoping for a long walk instead.
11 The machine also provides massage after the intense workout. 10-15 minutes of training a couple of times a week is enough to improve physical condition.
12 Power Plate massaged my calves and increased the circulation in my legs.
13 Improved circulation is something that can benefit everyone. Increased blood flow helps vital organs function better. Power Plate provides medical professionals with technologies to enhance overall health, fitness and quality of life.
14 Elevating my legs while Power Plate massaged my lower back was also helpful for blood circulation. Using advanced technology in vibration and frequency, this machine can be effective in managing stress and weight.
15 I used Power Plate to massage my outer thighs. Power Plate uses controlled levels of vibration that moves in three different directions: up/down, front/back and side to side.
16 Meanwhile, Sharkey decided a morning nap was in order.
17 And, Francesca moved to more comfortable bedding.
18 Here, Power Plate massaged the front of my thighs. Using Power Plate is great for improving spinal stability and muscle tone.
19 With better circulation, and more nerve stimulation, there is less chance of muscle injury and soreness.
20 Power Plate is great for a lower back massage as well. The machine is used by athletes looking for improved range of motion and coordination.
21 Toe stretches work all sorts of muscles in the legs. Power Plate promotes faster recovery from damaged muscles and soft tissue.
22 Knee lifts not only workout the legs, but exercise balance. The Power Plate is a wonderful exercise machine - I am sure to get a lot of good use out of it. Did you get your exercise in today?
