Vibration Training Anti-Cellulite Massage

April 18th, 2013

anti-cellulite massageThis is the one position in the IVTRB Vibration Training Safety Program that’s rather odd. It’s not training, it’s simply a massage.

Well maybe not too “simply” a massage, as we shall see.

For one thing – the anti-cellulite massage is very annoying.  It can make your butt itch so bad you hop about for ages afterwards.

Sitting on the machine, legs spread-eagled,leaning forward and resting arms over a big flat rubber mat or dangling the arms down by your ankles (which is very important to keep the backbone slightly lifted off the machine); then being pounded into the backs of the legs and parts of your butt; it isn’t necessarily a pleasant feeling.

It’s easy to picture what’s happening if you think of a big juicy piece of steak and imagine pounding it over, and over, and over with a heavy wooden (or metal) meat tenderiser.  Keep that up for three minutes and what happens to the steak? Yes, it flattens and some of the fats and other juices run off.  » Read more: Vibration Training Anti-Cellulite Massage

Vibration Training – Shake ya Booty?

April 11th, 2013

A friend commented on Facebook  that they wished there was a  Vibra-Train studio in their town so that they could join with us to “shake ya booty”.

I laughed, of course, but then thought that others might read that post and it might cause some confusion, so decided to write a brief blog on the different types of vibration machines and how they work. In doing so I’ll answer the question; do vibration machines “shake ya booty”?

Girl Dance Exercise OutdoorsWe girls love these quirky, laughable terms and we immediately identify with their meaning.  There are many types of dance-sport and dance exercise where “shake ya booty” is an entirely appropriate term. You get a real good shake all over and especially your butt.

But what about a vibration training session? Is it true that it “shakes ya booty” and if it doesn’t then how does it work? You need movement to really be exercising, right?
