Vibration plates are fun and safe machines that you can incorporate into all your workouts. A vibration plate machine is easy to store, and you can use it at any time in the comfort of your own home. Here are some ways to include vibration plates in your workout routines.
Vibration plates take your ordinary planks to the next level. Place the vibration plate under your forearms on the area where you usually lean against the ground. Then, extend your legs and feet behind you in the normal plank position. Turn on your vibration plate to the frequency you prefer and get ready for a full-body workout.
Add Shoulder Extensions
Another way to include vibration plates in your workout routines is to use them during shoulder extensions. For this exercise, you will need a hand strap. After turning on the vibration plate, spread your feet shoulder length apart on the plate with your knees slightly bent. Then, with a strap in each hand, pull your shoulders back and together. Hold this position for at least thirty seconds; pause and repeat.
Many athletes and fitness enthusiasts don’t know that you can perform squats on vibration plates. To work your legs and glutes, turn on the vibration plate, stand on top of it, and place your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees until you are in a squat position, almost like sitting on a chair. Remember to keep your back straight and lean forward slightly! Hold this position for at least 30 seconds, and then relax.
Bring on Lunges
Last but certainly not least, you can do lunges on your vibration plate. Place one foot off the vibration plate in front of you and your opposite shin on it behind you. Your front knee should be bent, and your back leg should extend slightly behind you. Remember to keep your back straight and lean forward! Stay in this position for at least 30 seconds; rest and repeat.
