Power Plates – the Ferrari of whole body vibration. These platforms vibrate two to four mm in three different planes. Front to back, side to side, and up and down. This maximizes the effect of vibration, which is threefold. First muscle must react to each vibration, for example if the PP (Power Plate) is vibrating at 40hz and it runs 30 seconds, that muscle fibers will contract 1200 times because of the vibratory reflex. Second, when exercising a muscle you generally use about 40 percent of the muscle, under vibration you use 95 percent of it. You get more muscle activity in less time. Better strength, and stretch under vibration.
