With 2020 almost one month behind us, there is no better time to start fresh in 2021 and grab life by the reigns (that is, if you haven't already).
If you’re like me, perhaps one of your goals is improving your/adding a fitness routine. With gyms being mostly shut down, working out from home is more important than ever before, but it’s hard to know just where to begin. Getting in shape can be daunting, but luckily, the whole-body vibrations of the MaxBurn Pro Fitness Plate are suited for all levels of fitness.
The MAXhealth causes whole-body vibrations which result in rapid muscle contractions, making your muscles and core work harder to keep your balance. This fitness innovation greatly improves balance, circulation, and core strength all within the comfort of your own home. It is super simple to use with four setting options: walking, jogging, running, and climbing.
So, what exactly is vibration, and how can it be used to enhance your workouts? Vibration is a mechanical stimulus characterized by its repetitive motion. During exercise, vibration increases co-contraction of muscles around joints. according to a small January 2018 study published by PLOS One, total energy expenditure during 20 minutes of exercise was higher when performed on a vibrating platform, compared to a static surface. Vibration is suitable for all skill levels; low impact workouts can be done by simply standing on the plate, knees flexed. This is supposed to stimulate natural muscle contractions and get blood flowing. Users can also add exercise movements while on the equipment to enhance the effects of both the vibration plates and the exercise.
It’s no secret that COVID-19 has left many of us with more downtime than we’re accustomed to. Emerging evidence suggests that time spent sedentary – so any waking activity in a sitting or reclining posture – can interact negatively with emotional and mental health. This means that Netflix bingeing can be just as hard on your mind as your body. But physical activity can play an important role in mental health management. Although people with depression tend to be less physically active than non-depressed individuals, increased aerobic exercise or strength training has been shown to reduce depressive symptoms significantly. In fact, recent meta-analyses of clinically depressed people of all ages discovered substantial decrease in depressive symptoms following both short and long-term exercise regimes.
Furthermore, recent population-based studies have shown that a lack of physical activity is a strong predictor to for increased morality in adults who are 65 and older. Researchers have found that older adults can achieve excellent exercise adherence rates, and with the MaxBurn Pro Fitness Plate, anyone can begin their fitness journey at their own rate.
So, whether you’re looking to burn calories while indulging in a Netflix binge or are hesitant to begin exercising, the MAXhealth Fitness Board has something for everyone.
