    Powerplate

    I'm just curious if anyone here in the older crowd has used one of these new fangal contraptions, look here, www.powerplate.com/us/index.aspx

    I understand this is going to be a new piece of equipment hitting the gyms across the USA.

    You have to start at the top of the web site, https://us.powerplate.com/

    I thought the whole vibration thing has pretty much been discredited more than once, w. the exception of rehab for some patients, and therapy for bruised muscles etc. Keeps coming back in new versions though, just like vibrating beds, chairs...

    I certainly hope you are correct, although maybe I could strap my PWO shake to it to keep it mixed while I workout?

    You could duct tape a workout chair on it and get a real full body workout.

    OK the web site is www.powerplate.com

    They claim a large number of Pro football players are using them to increase range of motion and help relieve sore muscles and joints.

    Probably BS.

    Now if it only also provided tiny electrical shocks to your muscles at the same time... lol
    A good friend once told me... "It's not the age, it's the mileage!" Pretty scary for me, considering the mileage I'd racked up with my lifestyle, until I realized I could overhaul my engine!
