vibration plate
 
Hi all
i was just wandering if anyone uses the vibration plate i have had mine for 10 days now i have lost 15 lbs but i am pretty sure its from the eating but for those of you with restless leg or bad backs very hard to exercise you might want to do some research i use mine twice a day shacks your body like crazy they say 10 min is like an hour at the gym i am not sure about that but my legs and back don't hurt

shaking your body doesn't burn calories like using your muscles, nor does it do all the other wonderful things for your health. it's nice that it makes you feel better though! just don't believe the claims that it's "like" exercising in any meaningful way. good luck!

Raven, you do the exercise on the plate, the vibration makes the muscles recruit more fibres to stabilize, you don't just stand there. the research is sketchy, but a lot of people calim it works for them

I would suggest for folks to Google Vibration Plates and get informed before jumping on another band wagon. It CAN cause damage.

I've learned recently how many reviews on other sources for different products are fake and are paid by the company or have some interest. I've also noticed how some very new posters have joined this Forum and talked about a book or product and what fantastic results they are getting.

Just beware.
