Shake it Loose
The whole-body vibrational plate is new to most people, but the concept has been around for decades.
Remember Jack Lalanne and the belt that shook the pounds away in the 1950’s? It fell out of favor when most didn’t lose weight fast. The pounds didn’t magically disappear, however… a recent study with mice showed whole-body vibration may indeed mimic the muscle and bone health benefits of exercise. a finding that could lead to less strenuous fitness programs for older people and those with mobility problems. Modern-day versions of the vibrating belt include whole-body vibration machines (that shake the body from the ankle up, either while standing or lying down) as well as more targeted electronic abdomen stimulators.
