powerplate

#1
Has anyone tried the powerplate - basically some gyms have this amazing vibrating platform that you stand, squat, do press-ups on for a minute at a time. supposed to be great for cellulite. Madonna has one apparently. invented by the Russian Space program... but other benefits doscovered! I've just started using it adn wondered any of you chaps have yet?

15 minutes is a very long time to use it.

I have read in magazines that it does work well for cellulite.

I do body brushing and massage and as such cellulite has never been a big problem for me.

I do think this diet also helps the skin.

I have manage about six minutes at most at the end of a gym session, not that fit and need to work on my fitness level.:eek:

Be sure to let us know how you get on with exercise on the powerplate.

Looks interesting.....but I have a horrid vision of all my fat shaking like mad....not a good look.

Thank God they don't have a mirror near to where the powerplate is in my gym, what I DON'T know does not bother me:p

It is a very strange feeling the first time but you do get to like it.

Out here with a few more stone off I wold like to tackle some of the more advanced exercise you can do on it, but for now holiding on for dear life and slowly doing half squats is as much as I can manage.

thanks guys. powerplate oddly addictive - and unexpectedly pretty tiring I find... but maybe that says more about my poor technique....!
