The Olympic training programs and their athletes have highlighted the use of Whole Body Vibration in Sports and leading athletic performance for more than a half a century. This is an arena where cutting edge technology and training techniques are researched, sought-after, highlighted and utilized to their fullest extent. Each Athlete and trainer is always striving for the cutting edge, and a few seconds makes the difference between winning a medal and being a runner up.
Some of the Olympic training results noted with use of Whole Body Vibration technology were as follows:
- Increase in vertical jump height
- Increase in jump length
- Increase in speed
- Increase in explosive power
- Increase in coordination
- Increase in balance
- Increase in stamina
- Increase in Growth Hormone production
- Increase in Testosterone
- Increase in speed of healing from sports related injuries
- Reduction in Lactic acid accumulation
- Reduction in recovery time
- Reduction of injuries
- Reduction of stress fractures
The Soviets were the first to use Whole Body Vibration in the late 50’s, in preparation for the 1960 Olympics. This was during the Cold War, when your athletic power translated into your placement and world standing as a leading country. At the 1960 Olympics, the Soviets won 103 metals, 43 of which were Gold. This was such a predominant win that drug testing ensued to ensure that the results were legitimate and not chemically induced. Once the results were in, and the wins verified as legitimate – as you can imagine – the entire world followed in their steps with the integration of vibrational training into their athletic programs.
The Safety and Efficacy of VibraSonic Whole Body Vibration vs. Mechanical Whole Body Vibration
When it comes to Whole Body Vibration exercise machines, there are about 60 brands made today, but only two use VibraSonic or sound actuated technology. Mechanical machines are inexpensive to manufacture, but only do a fraction of what sound/VibraSonic Whole Body Vibration can do for you. Maximum effectiveness with mechanical devices is only within 2 feet of the plate. In addition, because of the harsh jarring effect of mechanical action, you are dealing with the induction of a stress response in the body, including stress hormones. This is something not found with sonic waves which produce harmonic resonance.
Vibrating the cells is Not the same as getting them to vibrate back.
It is a very important distinction to know that simply mechanically vibrating the cells is not the same as increasing cellular vitality and voltage. With VibraSonic Whole Body Vibration, the cells vibrate in response to the electromagnetic and sonic/sound wave stimulation, which increases the electrical potential or voltage of the cell. This is not to be confused with the mechanical technology that simply shakes the body and its cells.
From the standpoint of Physics, sound travels through the space within our atoms, infinitely better than the mechanical vibration that results from standing on a plate with some type of hammering motor under it. The effectiveness on overall health and fitness with Sonic technology is profound when compared with its mechanical ancestors and competitors.
To be both fair and clear, there are some effects with the stress-induced response of the less expensive Mechanical Whole Body Vibration machines with regard to bone deposition, muscle strengthening, and an increase in circulation. However, remember that this is primarily limited to within two feet of the base plate, so will only effect the lower part of your body. You cannot play music, or other sound frequencies through any of the mechanical machines – and that is the magical component, greatly expanding the capability of the VibraSonic fitness equipment.
Mechanical vibration cannot increase cell voltage or induce a natural healing response in the body. In blood samples taken before and after 10 of Mechanical Whole Body Vibration – there is No change in the sample, and the cells remain clumped and dysfunctional. It took 60 years of mechanical vibration before it evolved to the development of VibraSonic Whole Body Vibration. There is no comparison in overall effectiveness – hands down, VibraSonic Whole Body Vibration far exceeds the harsh jarring effects of mechanical vibration. Sonic/sound vibration is immensely safer as well – just imagine standing on top of an incredible speaker with powerful, with wonderful sound frequencies pouring through it – as opposed to standing on top of a plate with a small jack-hammer underneath it…. which do you think would be better for the body?
This VibraSonic Whole Body Vibration technology should be at the heart of every sports team worldwide, and an integral part of every athletes training program.
