Flabelos Machines (WBV trainer)
The Flabelos machines are a new training tool that you usually find now on fitness salons and gyms and are steadily rising to popularity among health and fitness enthusiasts. This is also called the Whole Body Vibration (WBV) trainer. While the Flabelos is a recent product, the WBV training has been practiced by people for more than 30 years now. The NASA developed this training originally for astronauts to help them prevent osteoporosis and also wastage of muscles.
As the machine runs, the vibrating plate of the Flabelos moves up and down according to your set speed. While you are standing there, your body is trying to stabilize, impacting your muscles and creating more muscle contractions. This movement also generates vibration impulses which make way to your spinal cord through your nerves.
There should be no worries that your head will shake as the Flabelos machines are running, because it is in the pelvis that the movement will be absorbed. This process of muscle contraction results in your firming and toning up!
The Flabelos machines are easy to use. You just stand on the vibrating plates of the Flabelos either with your feet apart or a bit closer. You need to set the speed up and down, or opt for the pre-set program. It is recommended that you start low while getting the feel for the vibration machine. You may copy what others do – use the pyramid method, in which you start low at 8, speed up to 18, then finish at 12. Another method is starting low and then speed up, say 6 to 10 to 15 then finish at 19.
You should move your body while standing on the vibrator plate. Lean back and forward, bend your legs, or move from side to side. As the speed changes, you will find that certain positions will suit you better. To get good results, the machine should be used like other gym equipment – you must be comfortable first. And like a treadmill, it is not necessary to set it at the highest speed all the time.
Flabelos machines really work, and all you need is 10 minutes of work out every day. Standing on the vibrating plate of the Flabelos for just 10 minutes is equal to a work out for an hour on the gym. Medical academics and fitness professionals are all recommending this vibrating machine, especially to people who are too busy to spend an hour at a work out. Even some celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Madonna, and the X Factor (US) judge Nicole Scherzinger are reportedly using the WBV training. They make it their regular fitness and weight loss routine.
Here are the benefits that you can expect to get from the WBV training program.
• You lose weight,
• You burn fat,
• You tone up,
• Cellulite is reduced,
• Your muscles improve its strength and flexibility,
• Varicose veins are minimized or lost,
• Joint and lower back pains are minimized.
As in other exercises, the vibration machine must be used in conjunction with eating the right meal and drinking a lot of water, to attain a sustained and maximum weight loss.
