If you cannot go outside for exercise, a vibration platform allows you to do it from the comfort of your house. It's a machine that vibrates and transmits energy throughout the body. It causes your muscles to contract and relax several times a second. This rhythmic movement inculcates a feeling as if you are exerting yourself.
How does a vibration platform work?
It should be noted that this platform is not position-dependent. It implies that you could benefit from these vibrations while sitting, standing or even lying on the plate. However, the position you come into contact with the vibration plate determines that which of your muscles will face maximum exertion. For instance, if you slightly bend your knees while standing on it, the reflex muscles in your abdomen and legs will be triggered.
These vibrations do not only strengthen your muscles but target fat as well.
The best way to use a vibration platform
As I mentioned before, you could use the platform in any position. But in order to get the most out of it, a balance exercise is highly recommended.
You need to place a mat on the vibration machine and then (while leaning back and lifting your left feet) sit on it. You may use your arms for balance. Now bend your knees and contract your core muscles.
If you use this machine properly, it might aid in getting rid of belly fat. Typically, the results are achieved on long term basis. So if you are focusing on losing some pounds within a week or so, this is not your best bet.
However, it should be realized that if you plan to lose weight, a vibration platform does not offer an alternative to regular aerobic exercise and you should be pursuing both of these.
