WHOLE BODY VIBRATION/OSCILLATION TRAINING creates a fast twitch muscle response to the involuntary muscle contractions created by the vibration, and another simultaneous muscle response to the continuous instability that is being forced upon the body by the vertically shifting plane. This muscle response is called Tonic Reflex Vibration (TRV). While it is virtually impossible to produce a vibration machine with 100% ‘Lineal Motion’, the patented design of the Health Mark SPORT VIBE 2000 is as close as achievable. This design allows the body to work more directly against gravity, essentially allowing you to use your own body weight to work out with while limiting side-ways stresses to the joints. This phenomenon is commonly referred to as ‘Hyper Gravity’ or ‘Increased Gravity’. The movement exerted onto and into your body by the vertical oscillation will help to optimize muscle performance in regards to strength, power, flexibility, and tone while improving reflex strength and balance. This same technology can also be used to relax and rehabilitate tired muscles, temporarily improve blood, lactic acid and lymphatic fluid circulation. Research has indicated that these techniques can also help increase bone mass density, improve hip strength and gate, help alleviate discomfort from joint pain and arthritis, improve immune and lymph system function, and help with muscular dysfunctions such as Muscular Sclerosis.Whole Body Vibration
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) simulates an environment of increased gravity that forces the body to grow stronger and leaner. Comprised of a vibrating platform that comes in contact with the user's body, Whole Body Vibration tricks the body into reflexively trying to maintain equilibrium as if in a higher gravity environment, causing involuntary rapid firing of the super fast twitch muscle fibers. This reaction forces the muscles, bones, and cardio system to grow stronger, while circulation is increased, muscles are relaxed, and mobility is improved.
Exposure to Whole Body Vibration also improves balance, speed, and stimulates movement of lymphatic fluid that helps detoxify the body. Weightlifting is another way to incorporate more exposure to gravity, but Whole Body Vibration therapy does not cause injuries commonly associated with weightlifting such as rotator cuff tears, knee and hip arthritis, pinched nerves, low back pain, inflammation, stress fractures, strains and sprains.What is Plisometrics?
Whole Body Vibration is a form of Plyometrics because it involves the application of a rapid contractive force to the muscle. This exertion of maximum force increases power while activating major muscles in the body. Isometric exercise, performed with or without weights in a static position, is a type of strength training where the joint angle and muscle length do not change during contraction. By combining Whole Body Vibration with Isometric contraction, a hybrid of Isometrics and Plyometrics is created called Plisometrics.Training on the Health Mark Sport Vibe: Whole Body Vibration for Strength Training
Featuring Isometric Tension Straps that facilitate an Isometric upper and lower body workout, combined with Whole Body Vibration, the Health Mark Sport Vibe: Whole Body Vibration for Strength Training provides a great way to get a full body Plisometric workout. This effective and efficient exercise combination stimulates the muscles, while improving balance and flexibility.
With the Health Mark Sport Vibe: Whole Body Vibration for Strength Training, vibrating isometric, balance training, flexibility training, and power movement exercises can be performed. Sports specific applications for basketball, volleyball, combat sports, gymnastics, baseball, swing sports, football, tennis, and more can help increase performance abilities. There are also numerous massage, meditative, relaxation, and yoga poses that can be used on the Whole Body Vibration equipment. Here are some examples of specific exercises that can be performed on the equipment.Muscle Building and Toning Isometric Poses on the Sport VibePush-UpsAsymmetric SquatsBalance Assisted SquatsV-UpsModified CrunchesCalf RaisesDouble Leg RaisesTricep DipsPelvic ThrustsModified Push-UpsPlank Push-UpsPlank Side Push-UpsLungesPlisometric Tricep Dips
