Post natal exercises is vital to the health of all new mums.
Whole Body Vibration Training or acceleration training on VibroGym helps you to regain your figure by strengthening the pelvic floor and lower abdominal muscles because it targets the 3 most common post natal body problems, a wobbly, un-toned tummy and fat gained throughout pregnancy as well as a weakened pelvic floor which may have been a result of the pregnancy or childbirth.
The pelvic floor contains muscles which contract both voluntarily and involuntarily. When these muscles are weakened, you may notice the following problems: •an uncomfortable feeling of pressure or heaviness or leaking of urine, especially when laughing, coughing, or doing any form of exercise.
Unfortunately many women are embarrassed or reluctant to discuss this matter with their doctor or physio or other practioner and so suffer in silence, unnecessarily. Whole Body Vibration can be used to exercise the perineal muscles. Stimulating them at a rapid rate (multiple times per second)to improve their strength.
Whole Body Vibration targets various muscles and muscle groups, including your core muscles, which are the most important muscle group in your body.
Core exercises on a Whole Body Vibration machine train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen. This leads to better balance and stability, whether on the playing field or in daily activities. In fact, almost every physical activity depends on stable core muscles.
Stretching and exercising on the VibroGym will also help to increase circulation, tighten pelvic floor (I know I keep mentioning it, but it is important), improves posture, accelerate fat loss, increase energy levels and reduce stress levels.
This is ideal for mothers as a full body workout takes as little as 20 minutes three times a week, which is great when you are trying to juggle sleeps, feeding, washing and all the other chores!
Women experience urinary incontinence twice as often as men. Pregnancy and childbirth.
All trainers know the importance of energy conversion and as far as energy conversion goes, the training effect of Whole Body Vibration exercise via the stretch reflex further perfects the energy conversion capabilities of all the muscular systems involved. This reflex involves the rapid stretch (“fast twitch”) of muscle fibers, and through the gamma and alpha neuron systems response to that stretch, a corresponding muscle contraction followed by another release of tension is affected. Through repeatedly eliciting this reflex at varying speeds, the neuroplastic effects on the speed of potential to kinetic energy conversion are apparent.
When considering that muscle strength, power, flexibility and energy conversion are of utmost importance to an athlete, the degree of muscular coordination between and within the postural and phasic muscle groups may be the ultimate deciding factor between optimal performance and sustaining injury. Postural muscles, which act predominately to sustain your posture against gravity, contain mostly slow twitch muscle fibers and therefore have a greater capacity for sustained work. Phasic muscles, on the other hand, are more suited for movement, contain fast twitch muscle fibers and are more easily capable of fatigue. Impairments in the coordination of both phasic and postural muscle systems will cause joint instability, structural compensation, and inevitably, tissue trauma. Due to the unique nature by which Whole Body Vibration therapy works on the body, both postural and phasic muscle systems can be trained simultaneously with maximum levels of muscle recruitment (up to 97%). This enhanced state of inter and intra-muscular coordination, driven directly by the central nervous system and its response to the repeated Whole Body Vibration stimulus, allows for better support, reduced compensatory mechanisms during movement and proper stability during sport activities.
