Whole Body Vibration (WBV) works by transferring vibrations from an oscillating platform to muscles throughout the body, enabling them to contract and relax multiple times per second in a reflex action. WBV exercise increases blood flow and oxygenation to the muscles, prompting both elasticity and explosive power. It also loosens adhesions, which positively influences flexibility and range of motion even more.
Any static or dynamic pose, held for up to 60 seconds at a time while vibrating on the Whole Body Vibration platform, activates targeted muscle groups, simultaneously improving muscle strength, power, flexibility and range of motion; all contributing to optimal performance on the field, court, or course.
