IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...
… you’ll learn how whole body vibration works and the many ways it benefits your physiology. It’s the nexus between energy and life, says Tony Molina, a performance optimization expert.
“This biohack helps you burn more calories,” he says. “It helps you increase strength and reaction time. You can improve skin and circulation, bone density, pain relief, hormonal changes, posture and balance. It's also a lifelong health and longevity partner.”
He’s talking about the Power Plate. He’s a high-altitude and longevity researcher and Senior Research and Development Specialist at the company.
“Whole body vibration runs off Isaac Newton's second law, so force equals mass times acceleration,” he explains. “Where acceleration is what’s being increased versus mass. And generally, we focus on the mass, whether we do any kind of strength training, we focus on holding mass or dealing with the mass or changing the mass. With whole body vibration and Power Plate, you’re focusing on the acceleration or the speed change.”
Other cool things about whole body vibration:
- You're changing the formula from conscious effort (like conventional exercise) to subconscious (harmonic vibration).
- You’re experiencing multiplanar movement that creates an unstable environment that’s proprioceptively challenging. (The nervous system doesn't know what to do, which is a good thing.)
- Your neuromuscular spindle gets stimulated without the need for the brain even to get involved. (Cognitive confidence!)
- Your nervous system itself is ramping up safety signals so the brain understands what it needs to do without you consciously having to do anything.
- Your reflexes improve; your reaction time gets better; your ability to propriocept allows your posture to improve; and you breathe better.
Listen on to find out more about whole-body vibration training, therapy, and how it can make you live longer, whatever your fitness level or ability.
