Did you know this about the K-1 Platinum?
A 12-week study found that strength increases from an average of 10 minutes of vibration training were similar to those seen in an hour of regular resistance training.(Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, 2003; 35 (6); 1033-1041)
When we’re talking to others about the K-1 Platinum (a.k.a. the Noblerex K1) and say ‘whole body vibration’, that’s just exactly what it is. It’s total-body or full-body vibration. With most exercise, you’re only stimulating the skeletal muscles, or the muscles you can control with your mind. For example, when you work out with weights, you’re working out your skeletal muscles.
However, there are actually many more muscles in your body that are involuntary, smooth muscles. That’s why urinary incontinence and many other conditions are helped, because almost every muscle in your body is getting stimulated. Whole body vibration stimulates upwards to 96 to 97%t versus maybe 50% with traditional exercise. You really can’t say, “Okay intestines, start flexing,” or “Peristalsis, start moving,” or “Veins, start pushing blood.” All the little muscles that are involuntary, the brain stem controls. That’s one of the main benefits of whole body vibration. There have even been studies finding that a 10-minute session on the machine is equivalent to an hour’s worth of exercise lifting weights.
Another thing about whole body vibration is it’s so much more than just fitness. It’s also therapy. The fact that it works with the hormones; it works with bone density; it helps with back pain, neck pain, joint pain, lymphatic movement, urinary incontinence, and peripheral neuropathy. Of course it’s about the benefits that people want to do exercise for too: weight loss, muscle tone and cellulite.
Don’t forget about the increases in strength. Even for elderly people that can’t move around – it increases their strength up to 50% in as little as three weeks. Some people can hardly get out of a chair as they get older, let alone get around very well. We wish every nursing home in this country could have a K-1 Platinum because people would be walking out of the nursing homes! Some people would if they used it, because they’d be getting stronger. Their bones would get stronger. Their muscles would get stronger. Their pain would go away and they’d just be able to get around better. That’s one of the reasons people end up in a nursing home is that they just get to a point where they have a hip fracture, they just can’t get around without help.
