Although Power Plate exercises seem the same as those done at the gym (like squats or lunges) or in yoga or Pilates class (like tree pose or plank), performing them on a Power Plate means you're actually doing 4X the work and burning 4X the calories! Vibration creates acceleration in your body, which increases the amount of force imposed on your body - so the work load is dramatically increased, leading to faster results.
Westwood has been applauded by the golf community for increasing his lean muscle mass and reducing body fat through diligent training, including Power Plate exercise, and he has reaped the benefits from a healthier physique on the course.
I tried the power plate workout in Montreal at the MAA. The trainer had me doing supersets combining power plate exercises with non-power plate exercises for example holding a squat on the powerplate for 45 seconds and following that up wtih 15 jump squats on the floor.
It was great and really different from any other workout I’ve tried (and I’ve tried alot)!
