SUPERCHARGES blood and lymph flow throughout the body.
Depending on the machine you use, it can do this very well.
Making you feel great is what linear whole body vibration does best.
CAN WBV INCREASE BONE DENSITY?
Yes. This is the most well-established medical effect of whole body vibration.
Sanitariums, Cosmonauts, NASA, Athletes, etc. For most people, bone density isn’t a priority; however maintaining bone density may be essential to slow that part of the aging process, to keep you looking years younger than you are.
CAN WBV HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?
Probably not, directly. Perhaps if someone has gained weight as a direct result of poor lymph flow, then WBV might directly result in some excess body fat being lost.
Excess weight gain is a endocrine system issue.
- Most people are deficient in iodine; and are bombarded by “endocrine disrupting” toxins in low-quality food and water.
- A “low fat” diet keeps people fat. Eating high-quality fat from fish and grass-fed cows (butter!) is a much bigger part of the solution than ANY exercise machine or weight-loss gimmick.
For people who aren’t overweight, but have some sagging areas here and there, Linear WBV does cause a visible firming effect, pretty much all over the body. For most people, this effect is obvious and nearly immediate.
IS WBV A SMART ADDITION TO YOUR LONGEVITY PLAN?
There’s no proof that WBV can keep your body looking and feeling younger, for longer; but anything that makes you feel this good, and shows immediate physical results without stressful or harmful exercise, is a smart move.
Isn’t “smart” just doing more of what’s good for you, and less of what’s bad (or just less efficient at doing good)?
IS WBV A REPLACEMENT FOR EXERCISE?
Depends on your purpose; but generally not a replacement. More of an 80-20 relationship: A little time for a vibration session. A lot less time walking, aerobic activity, etc.
Strength training? Try training during a WBV session, rather than separately. See how this improves your results!
CAN WBV SHORTEN POST-WORKOUT RECOVERY TIME?
This is a common claim from athletes and trainers. Many trainers rave about this benefit from WBV; but recovery time depends most on what you’re eating (plus optimized sleep). Get plenty of collagen, vitamin-c, creatine, glutathione, while avoiding inflammatory foods and toxins. WBV could further reduce recovery time, once you’re in that zone. Try and see for yourself: “n = 1” experiments are what personal progress is made of.
