If you’re looking to lose weight, a key element of your fitness journey is going to be exercise. The problem is that most people think they have to spend hours in the gym every day, which is exhausting and often not sustainable. The good news is that there are other ways to get active that don’t require as much time or effort. One option is power plate training.

What Is Power Plate Training?

Power plate training has been around for decades, but it wasn’t until recently that it started gaining popularity among fitness enthusiasts and professionals alike. This type of exercise involves using a vibrating platform called a power plate that helps burn fat by increasing your metabolism and improving muscle strength.

How Does It Work?

When you stand on a power plate for 10 minutes at a time, you will start to feel vibrations all over your body as it stimulates muscles throughout your entire body at once (rather than just one area at a time). This vibration causes your body to release endorphins which can help make you feel happier while also reducing stress levels so that they don’t contribute as much towards feeling tired after workouts later on down the road (which can lead

The Power Plate theory: sending vibrations through your muscles during exercise causes them to contract up to 50 times per second, which boosts their exertion by 300% compared with doing the same workout on the floor.

The result: longer, leaner muscles in a third of the time.

‘Muscles have to become completely fatigued to gain lean, toned mass,’ explains Ronnie Kublova, master trainer at Powervibe Fitness Studio, London.

Muscle fatigue and failure is a good gauge of intensity, meaning micro-tears have been created in the muscle, which are subsequently repaired and grow back stronger.

‘This only takes a minute on the power plate.’ Do three circuits of the workout three times a week on a vibration speed of 35MHz.

Do each move for 60 seconds with a 15-second rest in between. Shake a leg.
