Exercises on a Hypervibe G17 – Beginner to Intermediate

[Transcription]  Hi I’m Drew Tally with trueform life.  Today I’m going to be doing some exercises and explanations with the Hypervibe whole body platform.  Now before we get started I want to tell you about how the machine actually works.

Look here to find a Hypervibe G17 Pro for sale!

As you can see on the back of my shirt we have a number 17.  That represents g-force.  The Hypervibe machine can actually accelerate 17 times the Earth’s gravity.  What that means is that your body is going to feel a whole lot heavier on the platform.

Now the industry average is 4g’s.  These facts have been verified by an independent engineering company.  What this means for you is you’ll be getting a great value for your money.  You’ll be able to tone and build muscle quicker with the Hypervibe than with other machines.

Exercises on a Hypervibe G17 Pro – Beginner

So, what I want to do now is do some basic exercises, so we know how to actually use the machine.  First, we’re going to start up with a quick warm-up.  So, to keep our feet slightly close together we’re going to bend our knees a little bit and let the machine do most of the work.  Most times we were going to work depending on your fitness level.

We’re going to do 30-second intervals.  So, I like to do lower body exercises and then upper body exercises.  So, from the warm-up we’re going to go into a full squat.  Now depending on what level you’re at more advanced the lower you get and it’s a little bit easier the higher you get.

So, I said I’ll tell you about the platform is because of how it moves the further our feet are apart the more movement we’re going to get which is going to make it more difficult.  So that’s our squat.

Now I want to get into a push-up.  So, we are going to start, just to begin a push-up, we can start on our knees, keep our elbows slightly bent and we can lower to make it more difficult we can actually do full push-ups and then we can also do a whole push-up just depending on where you’re at hold or actual reps.

So, from there I’m going to do a toe raise.  So, let me show you how we’re going to do a toe raise.  It’s a basic calf raise, a toe raise depending on what you call it.  So, we’re going to keep our knees slightly bent.  We don’t ever want to lock out our joints and we’re going to let the machine do this work too.  We can also do all the exercises can either be static or dynamic which just means moving or holding so that’s good.

From there we’re going to get into a bicep curl.  I can leave that machine on.  I’m going to face the other way, so we don’t get away the console there.  Again, knees slightly bent.  We’re going to go to our full range of motion.  Elbows in, hand up, chest up just like we’d be doing on the ground.  We’re going to work our biceps with this exercise here.

So from there we’re going to go back to lower body exercise.  Now we can do something like you know whatever is in the program at the time we’re going to do a single leg squat.  So, I was just going to look just like the basic squat we’re going to use one leg you can hold on we’ll just work basic exercises right now we’ll just hold on right now and of course we’re going to do both legs.  Depending on what your fitness level is like I talked about earlier we 30 seconds 45 seconds a minute.

Alright so from there we can do another upper body exercise and we have shoulder raises next on the list.  So, let me show you how that works.  Same as bicep curls we’re going to be looking forward head up chest up workout good form good posture shoulder raises slightly above not too much higher than the shoulders.  So, depending again depending on your fitness level you go for 30 seconds.  Try to get in as many reps as you can with control form it look something like that.

Next, I want to show you the lower back exercise.  Not so much a back exercise but more for circulation and blood flow and straighten our legs a little bit leaning over.  We can actually target that area a little better.  You’re going to feel a lot of vibration up in this lower back area.

Okay I was just checking out my next exercise.  We’re going to finish off with tricep dips.  That is a few variations with all the exercises but this one here we can actually be off the platform and we can do our exercises here.  You do our tricep dips here.  To make that more difficult we can do our tricep dips with straight legs.  This is a more challenging exercise.  That’s why I want to give three different variations.  And finally, we’re going to hold position here on the platform to work those triceps.

So that’s basically the beginner exercises of our Hypervibe G17 platform.  I hope that helps you how to use it.  So, as you can see that was quick and easy to do.  Now I’m fully warmed up and ready for a high intensity workout.  My name is Drew Tally with Hypervibe.  Thanks for watching.  [End of Transcription]

This second video shows some additional exercise routines that you can use on a Hypervibe G-17 Pro or any other whole body vibration guide.

[Transcription]  Hi, my name is Drew Tally with trueform life.com.  Today I’ll be doing some exercises with Hypervibe G17 Pro whole body vibration machine.  I’m going to show you how to incorporate cardio and lower body workouts today.

Hypervibe G-17 Pro Exercises Intermediate

Today’s a lower body program so we’re going to put it together to get you a complete program.  So, we’re going to start off on that Hypervibe machine.  Now I’m gonna leave this at low force just so you get the idea of it.  So, we’re gonna get into a basic squat here to start off our lower body program.  To leave the machine on I’m gonna go down and do some lower body exercises.  Now for this I’m going to get on the ground.  This one here is called frog legs or you call it whatever you like.  We’re working our abs here, hamstrings and glutes it’s a great little body exercise.

From there we’re going to move on to our stepper.  So, I’ll run everything on the 30-second intervals when we do our sessions, 30-second steppers, 30 seconds on the Hypervibe and 30 seconds doing our exercises on the ground.  So, from there we go back to the Hypervibe.  Whatever is in our program we do.  Another exercise there for 36 and so this is one legged squat we’re gonna go for 30 seconds each side and then we’re going to go back to a floor exercise.  Again, sticking with the lower body right now.

Another exercise here again we’re working those hamstrings great lower body exercise.  We want to keep our heart rate up the whole time.  That’s why we want to incorporate everything we can with the Hypervibe machine.  So, give another 30 seconds on the platform or starting on the stepper and then we come back to the Hypervibe.

So, depending on what your program looks like we run about a 20-minute program.  So that’s a great way you can incorporate the Hypervibe into a whole complete workout.  My name is Drew Tally.  Check out true form life dot com.  Thanks very much.  [End of Transcription]

Exercising on a Hypervibe whole body platform will increase oxygen uptake as noted in the following study:

Oxygen uptake during whole-body vibration exercise: comparison with squatting as a slow voluntary movement.

“In this study we investigated metabolic power during whole-body vibration exercise (VbX) compared to mild resistance exercise. Specific oxygen consumption (VO2) and subjectively perceived exertion (rating of perceived exertion, RPE; Borg scale) were assessed in 12 young healthy subjects (8 female and 4 male). The outcome parameters were assessed during the last minute of a 3-min exercise bout, which consisted of either (1) simple standing, (2) squatting in cycles of 6 s to 90 degrees knee flexion, and (3) squatting as before with an additional load of 40% of the subject’s body weight (35% in females). Exercise types 1-3 were performed with (VbX+) and without (VbX-) platform vibration at a frequency of 26 Hz and an amplitude of 6 mm. Compared to the VbX- condition, the specific VO2 was increased with vibration by 4.5 ml x min(-1) x kg(-1). Likewise, squatting and the additional load were factors that further increased VO2. Corresponding changes were observed in RPE. There was a correlation between VbX- and VbX+ values for exercise types 1-3 (r = 0.90). The correlation coefficient between squat/no-squat values (r = 0.70 without and r = 0.71 with the additional load) was significantly lower than that for VbX-/VbX+. Variation in specific VO2 was significantly higher in the squatting paradigm than with vibration. It is concluded that the increased metabolic power observed in association with VbX is due to muscular activity. It is likely that this muscular activity is easier to control between individuals than is simple squatting.”
