The vibration plate is one of the easiest and most effective ways to give your whole body a great workout, but, when you are spending hundreds of pounds buying one you need to make sure you are getting the best model for your budget. So, what should you look for before buying a vibration plate?
1. Strength – your vibration plate needs to be strong enough to endure repeated workouts. Think about how you will use it; you will stand on it, sit on it, step up to it and perhaps even jump on it. Looks for a model that is constructed, in the main, from steel as this should offer you a good deal of strength.
2. Size of Plate – the plate should be big enough for you to stand comfortably, feet apart and in line with your hips. You should have room around to move, to raise your legs and perform simple stretches and squats. A plate that is too small will have a huge negative impact on your workout.
3. Brand – some of the leading brands are now entering the vibration plate market. Choose brands you can trust and look for those offering a good warranty in case anything goes wrong.
4. Features – try and buy a model with as many features as you can afford. Look for a variety of speed settings, as these can alter your results dramatically. Slow speeds are good for weight loss, whilst fast speeds are ideal for cardio and muscle building. Also look out for features like arm straps, where you can challenge your arms whilst exercising the rest of your body.
