Training on the Hypergravity Fit-N-Flex depends on both the intensity and the amplitude of the vibrations. The higher the amplitude the more the muscles and brain have to contract in order to appropriately adjust to the mechanical movement of the plate. This increase in amplitude can lead to a more powerful training effect in some circumstances. Whole Body Vibration Training can therefore cause 100% of muscle fibers to fire as contrasted with conventional training which usually engages only 40-60% of muscle tissues. In addition, supporting musculature that may be difficult to consciously activate can be stimulated using this technology. As a result, the whole body neuromuscular system can be stimulated at once and training time significantly reduced since many muscles are engaged simultaneously and not one muscle group after the
other as occurs in traditional training techniques.
Training on the Hypergravity is similar to any other form of training. Build slowly by using short, low intensity training periods and gradually work up to higher intensity levels. Hypergravity platforms do more than just build strength or increase metabolism. They also detoxify the internal organs and cells. Consequently, sore muscles are not our only concern for training slowly, when initially starting your whole body vibration protocols. Symptoms of detoxification caused by the release of cellular waste into the blood stream can also occur; headaches, flue like symptoms, fatigue and constipation can all be potential symptoms associated with detoxification of the body. For most people, the slow build approach to WBV training will prevent most of these reactions. WBV training with Hypergravity platforms stimulated hormone production, improves lymphatic flow and increases cellular absorption. So, these guidelines may not be applicable for all people or all circumstances. Listen to your body and
use common sense when it comes to any therapy or exercise program.
Whole body vibration can be as muscularly taxing as any intense workout with weights, pilates, or yoga. The typical recovery period after conventional training is about 1-2 days. However, with whole body vibration training recovery time is within minutes. Daily training should be performed to attain maximal results. If you’re a seasoned athlete or exercise regularly, then the progressive build up period may be too easy, so just adjust the length or time of
the workout to meet your training capacity and personal needs.
Hypergravity training follows the recommended exercise progression concept used by the American College of Sport Medicine (ACSM) for conventional
resistance training. Extend the time of each exercise (from 30 sec. to 45 sec. / 45 sec. to 60 sec.), Reduce the rest period between exercises (from 60 sec. to 45 sec. to 30 sec. to no rest) or increase the time interval. Up to 5 minutes (300 seconds) continuous use of intervals for the Personal Models and 10 minute intervals for the Professional Models.Increase number of sets per exercise. Perform exercise statically then dynamically. Add additional exercises as you master the initial set or routine.Increase Frequency: Personal and Olympic Professional models : 10HZ, 15Hz, 25Hz, 30Hz, 35Hz, 40Hz, 45Hz, 50Hz, 55Hz, 60Hz. Incorporate unilateral movement (EX: perform exercise on one leg, etc.) Increase Amplitude - Low to High
It is recommended that 1/2 - 3/4 inch rubber soled shoes be worn when standing directly on any Hypergravity platform. Check to be sure you care performing exercises in the proper position. A cushion pad can be used if desired when other body parts come in contact with the non skid surface on the
platform.
