So how does it work? Power Plate is engineered to activate the body’s natural reflexive response to vibrations, the Power Plate platform moves 25 to 50 times per second to engage muscles in a consistent and controlled manner. This type of whole-body vibration technology speeds up health and fitness benefits to deliver faster, longer lasting results. To learn more about how Power Plate works, click on our previous blog HERE. Now it’s time to dive into how Power Plate will enhance your workout.
- Enhance Your Muscular Strength
Many exercises that you already perform in your workout can be done on the Power Plate. Performing these exercises on the Power Plate will take them to the next level. The surface vibrations of the Power Plate result in a natural response from your body that works your muscles harder than doing the exercise on the ground. The Power Plate vibrates up and down, side-to-side, and front-to-back, destabilizing the body and promoting the reflexive engagement of soft tissue. Involuntary muscle activity promotes quick, reflexive responses in muscle fibers and an increase in circulation. That means development in whole-body balance, mobility and stability, strength and motor control (muscle memory), occurs in a shorter time frame than with traditional methods.

- Enhance Your Mobility
As you just learned, Power Plate’s vibration technology increases your body’s circulation. Circulation plays a large part in how mobile your tissue and joints are. To further explore the effects of increased circulation through Power Plate, the vibration on a massage setting stimulates lymphatic flush, eases pain, promotes faster recovery of damaged muscles and tendons, improves joint function, and helps you return stronger. This means that your warm up and cool down will be more effective on the Power Plate than using traditional methods. Not only that, your increased mobility will keep you prepared for future challenging workouts and keep you feeling well through life’s day to day demands. You can read the research HERE.
- Enhance Your Time
Power Plate accelerates your training up to 5.8x. When you perform your workout on the Power Plate, your results are magnified. With whole-body vibration training, you get a complete, full body workout in fifteen minutes. This can include stretching, balance training, core training, strength and power training and massage. This day in age, nothing is more valuable than time. We know finding time to exercise can be a challenge, so it is important to maximize the time you do have to exercise. Power Plate does that.
Enhanced muscular strength, enhanced mobility and enhanced time are three big ways Power Plate can enhance your workout. They are also three big reasons why Power Plates are used by elite athletes and fitness professionals all over the world.
