- Experience It
Sir Isaac Newton would have loved the Power Plate machine. His second law explains how Acceleration Training™ works. Force is produced by accelerating your body (represented by mass in the equation). So instead of adding weights, we simply move you to create forces up to an equivalent of six G-Forces.
Frequency is how many times the Plate's surface moves per second. Power Plate machines can be set at between 25 and 50 Hertz. What is the difference? Higher settings are best for massage to stimulate circulation, while lower settings are better for strength, balance and core training.
It's not called Acceleration Training™ for nothing. Power Plate workouts are so fast because the whole body vibration triggers more muscle fibres to engage during every exercise. When you set the machine to 30 Hertz for 30 seconds and perform and exercise, just imagine how many times your muscles respond to the vibrations...
When you watch a Power Plate machine, the movement is invisible to the naked eye. However the surface is moving a few millimetres at a rate of up to 50 times each second. This movement accelerates your mass to vreate force by working with gravity. Imagine if you could jump a few millimetres 900 times in 30 seconds...
