- Experience It
Sir Isaac Newton would have loved Power Plate machines. His second law explains how Acceleration Training works. We create force by accelerating your body(aka mass). So instead of adding weights, we simply move you to create forces up to an equivalent of six G's.
Frequency is defined as how many times the plate surface moves per second. The optimal range for whole body vibration is between 25-50hz. What is the difference? Higher frequencies are better for massage and stimulating blood flow, while lower are better for strength, balance and core training.
Power Plate Acceleration Training workouts are short and sweet. We can do this because whole body vibration triggers more muscle fibers to engage during every exercise. At 30hz and 30sec your muscles are contracting and relaxing approximately 900 times. How much more do you need?
When you watch a Power Plate machine vibrate you won't see it move, yet the surface is moving up to a few millimeters(mm) up to 50 times per second. This movement is accelerating your mass to create force by working with gravity. Imagine if you could jump a few millimeters 900 times in 30sec...
