Vibration plates, also known as 'vibrating plates' or 'vibrating machines', are very easy to use. The vibration produced by the plate brings your body out of balance, which forces you to work hard to maintain balance. As a result, your body starts to tighten different muscles. Thus, while you are doing nothing, you are actually doing a lot. You can also use a vibration plate to complement a regular workout. Because of the vibration, the exercises often become twice as efficient because your body has to work hard to remain in balance. Many vibration plates have additional accessories that allow you to do a wide range of exercises. Finally, the vibration produced by the plate helps to prevent cellulitis.
There are several types of vibration plates available. Some plates only have a vibration mode, others also have the option for oscillation. Vibration means that the plate goes up and down at a fast pace. Oscillation is a rocking movement that puts your body out of balance in a different and more intense way than vibrating. This demands even more response from the muscles. Some vibration plates have a combined function of vibration and oscillation, which creates a three-dimensional workout effect and challenges the body to the maximum. A vibration plate is also excellent for relaxation after a workout.
