Can The Power Plate My3 Shake Off The Belly Fat?

Welcome To Power Plate My3 review. Power plates have been around now for quite a few years. Some people swear by them and others loathe them. However, using them offer some amazing benefits.

In general, vibration plates had one setting. As a result, you would need a good dental plan. Horrible teeth chattering experience.

Also, power plates were clunky and in all honesty not very good. Although this may be true, science and engineering have caught up. Now, you have slick designs and many features with the aim to lose weight and other health benefits.

In fact, many celebrities endorse power plates. including, Courtney Cox, Elle Macpherson, Clint Eastwood and much more.

What Do They Do?

The power plate my3 will give you an all body workout. Vibration from the plate makes muscles contract at a high rate, in turn, brings a whole range of benefits to your health.

These hi-tech pieces of equipment send vibrations through the body roughly making the muscles contract 25-50 times per second, this will help out massively with nerve and muscle efficiency.

Because the high rate of contractions in the muscles the body has to respond to stabilise giving you greater flexibility and strength in your tendons and ligaments.


 Benefits Of The Power Plate my3


Power plates have scientific medical research behind them now and there are some really positive results, especially regarding weight loss and rehabilitation.

During this case study with overweight and obese patients, visceral fat was dramatically reduced, and another research has shown that vibration training is a powerful tool in rehabilitation.

The benefits of the power plate are numerous, I have compiled best benefits below

  • Expect improvement in blood circulation virtually straight away.
  • Reduction in visceral fat.
  • Low impact on joints and bone.
  • Strengthens bone mineral.
  • Helps muscle repair from exercise and reduces soreness.
  • Help reduce the stress hormone cortisol that’s responsible for weight gain.
  • Helps with skin elasticity giving a smoother more toned appearance.
  • flexibility and strength will increase.

My Thoughts And Experiences With Power Plates.


Power plates are a powerful tool for people who want to lose weight and tone up without exerting much effort. However, if you think you can just jump on one stand there and expect to see drastic results then you’re going to be disappointed.

You are going to need to use it consistently and properly, what I mean by “properly” is you have to know what techniques to use.

By using the correct techniques you will isolate muscle groups and receive way more benefits out if it and notice the difference.

Also, don’t expect your physical fitness to skyrocket you may lose weight and you may tone up but it doesn’t train your heart muscle so I would suggest perhaps doing some high-intensity interval training, trust me your body will love you.

Personally, I use the power plates after a workout to help ward off the aches and pains for the next couple of days and to improve my flexibility ( I couldn’t even touch my toes)

Overall power plates are effective for all levels but be aware that due to its nature of vibrating at high rates, going cheap will cost you in the long run with new parts or a new machine.

What Others Think of Power Plates


I have spoken to many people who use these machines personally in my gym and they highly recommend them for lots of reasons, not just weight loss, the only thing they don’t like is the funny sensation you feel as the vibrations go through you when you first start using it.

On the other side of the spectrum are the folks who never use them as they think there pointless and do nothing for you.

Overall, they have great reviews and their popularity isn’t going away, in fact, it’s increasing

Conclusion To Power Plate MY3 Review


There are a few floors to the power plate my3. The reason being, these machines are still relatively new. Thus, no long-term research has been done to the impact of sending vibrations through our body.

Secondly, there is a lot of marketing from companies making wild claims that can be misleading to people who are not in the fitness circles and don,t have the knowledge professionals have!

For instance, some company’s make it sound like power plating is all you need to become fit healthy and happy, it certainly will help but for cardio health not so sure.

However I honestly believe there is a place for power plates in every training routine, the only real flaw is its never going to get you fit like HIIT can. However, for losing weight and toning it’s proven to be very successful.

I would also like to add its perfect for people who’s capabilities are limited with medical conditions, Arthritis, osteoporosis and even Parkinson’s patients to name a few.

For all the benefits it offers it represents great value for money and that’s why I choose the power plate my3. Furthermore, its reasonably priced compared to other power plates and still has the same functions.

I really hope this post helped you in making a decision to buy this amazing piece of equipment,

    Thank you for some great information, this is a really good site, well presented out and informative.

    I have been running a lot for weight loss but I find that it is very hard on my knees and to be honest I haven’t been enjoying it so much. I never knew that power plates had so much potential and its good to see that they are easy on the joints!

    When I move out, Into a bigger property I am seriously considering getting this.

    Thanks

    I have seen people use these at the gym, but I have never really known what they were till now.

    I live in a flat so do you think these would be suitable or would the noise be too much downstairs?

    Nevertheless I am going to try it out next time I’m at the gym now that I know how they work.

    This is really interesting. I honestly didn’t know machines like this still existed, although this is a much more scientifically advanced machine than the ones ‘back in the day.’ What I actually found most interesting was the option to use it after your normal exercise routine. I think that is a great idea to, like you said, help prevent muscle aches.

    My main question though is the noise level. I live in an upstairs apartment and have avoided getting a treadmill and other exercise equipment because I don’t want my downstairs neighbor to have to deal with the noise. Would this produce too much noise for an upstairs apartment?

    I had heard of these machines and had a picture in my head of some fat man from the 50’s standing with a big belt around him…I didn’t realize they had come into the 21st century and now had scientific proof that they work..and have so many benefits. As some who could loose a few pounds but can’t really run, due to bad knees from football as a teenager, I think this could be quite valuable with it’s low impact aspects. Do you recommend any other exercises to compliment this machine in weight loss? Thanks

    I never consider power plate as a workout tool.
    It is a lazy person tool.

    But my main reason is the vibration.
    I think the vibration can damage my spine if I use it regularly. Of course, this is just my opinion without the backup of a reliable research.

    I believe that a proper workout like HIIT is the best way to lose weight or for any health target.

    The power plate is an interesting concept and could possibly help people who are unable to exercise properly due to medical reason, such as muscle or back problems. This could assist in reducing weight loss, however as you mentioned for those wanting to use the power plate to assist in getting fit, exercising other areas of the body, in addition to using the power plate is required. Good informative article.

      Hey,

      I dont suggest you use power plates with a injury unless its prescribed one of the best things for injuries is balance and instability exercises, usually prescribed with physio

      I know exactly what you mean and if your using power plates at the gym there is no need to spend all this money if your not using TRX Taining Kit yet I highly recommend this will keep you in the good shape and also promote the best shape you could be in it wont build musle though but will help in building muscle.

    This equipment seems like a perfect fit for someone needing low impact exercise. Running like I do, is really hard on the joints you cant really do it if you have joint problems or bad knees. My quick question is how much calories can one burn just standing on one of those machines? Seems like a cool alternative to usual exercising. Thank you for the info!

    Reply
    1. Steven

      It is good for people such as your self who from running have buggered there joints its hard to put a specific number on calories as its similar to weight training it is suggested that you can burn between 500-700 per hour but in reality your not going to use for an hour and it seems you burn more calories after you stop exerercising (after burn)

    Hey great post. This machine definately looks interesting. I have been losing weight the last few months. I am down about 30 pounds. I did it the old fashioned way cutting calories and exersise.

      Its fantastic that you have lost weight the tried and tested many times over way by cutting calorie.

      People have reported of there body being sore(ish) after using but I use it after a workout so if and when I do get soreness its most likely from my workout I just did.

      Its definitely got its uses for certain populations but it wont get you cardio fit.

I seriously have a huge belly fat problem and I’d love to try this. But I’m embarrassed to say that even after watching the video, I’m not sure how it actually works. Do you happen to have a link to a video that shows someone actually on the machine?

    Steven, I remember these when they used to be the craze, but I never put much credence to their usefulness. But you caught my eye with your article when you talked about how it causes your core muscles to contract. I have chronic lower back pain and my physical therapist hooks me up to electrodes a couple times a week to stimulate my back and core muscles. I wonder if this machine could help me as well?

    I also liked where you said its good after a workout to help ward off the aches and pains for the next couple of days and to improve flexibility.

    Sure sounds like its worth another look, at least for me.

    Thank you for your excellent article.

    This power plate my3 is different than anything else I have seen. I don’t think I would use it myself, but I do think it would be good for someone who is obese as it would make it easy for them to get moving a bit.

    I’m also trying to be more active and to lose some weight as I have a desk job and sitting all day did slow down my metabolism. I know that, because though I eat healthily, I’m still slowly gaining weight. I don’t like high intensity workouts but I just love playing badminton. I play badminton probably 2 – 3 times a week for around 2 – 3 hours each time. So I do get sore and this would be perfect to relax sore muscles to reduce the pain in the days after.

    This is a great review on a product I can probably get for my grandmother. The doctor advised her to lose a few pounds; but because she’s 81, it can be a bit painful for her so she prefers to not exercise at all.

    I really like that the My3 Power Plate helps improve circulation since that’s something that she needs to do. I also liked that it helps tone muscles while not putting too much stress on the muscles.

    Looks like grandma might be getting a Power Plate My3 for Christmas.

    But you use it for post workout. Do you advise it be used as your only source of exercise, or use it to compliment my workout?

      This is great machine for people such as your Grandmother but definitely go doctors first to see if they OK it!

      I use it post work out just to get a deeper stretch and to reduce lactic acid there for less soreness, it can be used as only form of exercise but for best results to combine it with other types of training, obviously for some people that isnt possible and thats where a power plate has its usfulnes

    The idea behind the powerplate, which transmits vibrations through the body to activate muscle contraction is interesting. using one feels quite odd initially and but it seems to be one of the quickest ways to tone up muscle for a trimmer silhouette. Like everything, it only works if you use it, though!

      power plates are a really great concept and you are right that trimmer folk it Will show quicker, but the great news is research has shown that it is also great for weight loss.

    I remember back in the 60’s seeing a machine with a belt that went across your buttocks or waist and shook the living daylights out of you. Was this the Power Plate’s ancestor? People are always looking for the easiest, most cost efficient way to lose weight and get fit. This looks easy enough, and as far as cost, you have to put it in perspective. Quality, convenience, benefit etc. play a part in making the right decision for buying equipment. This machine looks like it would have benefits for both ends of the physical spectrum i.e. those with disabilities and those who engage in high intensity workouts.

      It certainly was its ancestor Robin, they have come along way since them days but still work on the same principle.

      It can be used for a variety of people which is great especially for people who cant engage in strenuous physical activity.

      The cost can be seen as quite high but trust me buy cheap you buy twice as its wobbling so cheap parts will break twice as quicker

    I must really be out of the loop because I have never heard of these machines. I guess part of me is a little skeptical. As someone who has been involved in fitness my whole life I have seen exercise products come and go and claiming all kinds of wonders. Wound love to see the research on this machine. That being said if it can help people who cannot exercise due to physical problems and really benefits them, then that is wonderful. Just have my doubts.

Now I know how this works from your review above. I really wonder however whether this causes adverse health effects as surely the body is not set up to handle 25-50 muscle contractions per second?

      Hi James,

      Science is a bit thin on the ground regarding any adverse side affects, none is known as of yet I believe there are theories and rumours but at present that’s all they are.

      Power Plates Pros far outweigh the Cons I have found this from NBC news really intresting read

    Thanks for a great article on power plates. I never really heard about this before but I need one after reading about this machine. Can you recommend an entry level power plate machine that’s effective but inexpensive. I think I could use all the benefits that you listed above. 🙂 I also think this would be a great machine for people with health problems that can’t do a more strenuous workout. My brother in law has Parkinson’s Disease and this would be great for him. Thanks.

    Hi there,

    I think it’s great that you want to help people lose weight. However, I don’t think this is the best way to do it. I think a lot of money is wasted on new products that claim to give you this and that, but many of them are over-hyped. I understand that you are trying to sell this product and make some money, there is nothing wrong with that. But do you use this product personally? It seems like you don’t, since you have nothing to say about your experience with it. The whole article sounds like a sales pitch to me. I’m not trying to crap on your article, as there is some great information on the specs of the product. However, it isn’t very convincing to me that this product is all that. Just some food for thought. Take care.

      Hi Lucas,

      I would have to disagree with you, this product certainly isn’t for everyone and not everyone would like to use it, however there are many individuals out there who dont like hard core exercise or even exercise

      Power plates make it easy and accessible for people who are over weight and unaccustomed to exercise to safely lose weight with out causing damage to joints, infact, the power plate will help with bone density so not only are the individuals who use power plates lose weight as research shown they can potential avoid bone and joint disease.

      I do use them for myself, I don’t use them to lose weight however, I use them to help with DOMS after a workout.

      Do you use them your self to form a professional opinion, would love to here if you have had any benefits from them.

    Interesting machine and great review. I specifically like that it is low impact on the joints. Will have to look more into it. Thanks for sharing your view!

    The idea intrigues me that you could stand on a machine and let the pounds just fall off. i have honestly never heard of such a machine before. I personally feel that the best way to lose weight hands down is with fresh air and excersise. I am certainly no expert in the field that is only my personal opinion.

      Hi Torrey,

      In some respects your right, fresh air and exercise is great for losing weight, Especially cold fresh air as this helps activate brown fat cells.

      The power Plate operates diffrently to exercise as it wont get your heart in a high intensity state so cardio wont be affected to its fullest capabilities but power plates do offer benefits that conventional exercise dont.

      Regards

    I have recently started to incorporate the power plate in my workouts. I have spent a lot of money on massages and was looking for an alternative. This was perfect at the end of my workouts to get my blood flowing and most gyms have them so its for free. Great post on this particular power plate. Is there any other power plates that are a bit cheaper but just as effective?

      Hi Xander,

      Many people tend to usae the power plate after a workout, it helps eliminate lactic acid, lactic acid is what makes you burn during exercise so it speeds up recovery time. yes there are some out there that are cheaper and just as reliable.

      Go to cheap though and you run the risk of buying twice.

    I am glad I took the time to read this review. I actually had no knowledge but had heard some talk.

    A lot got cleared up as to what power plate really is. Like you said, It does nothing for cardio which is a concern I have. Thanks again, Robert

      Hi Robert,

      If you have access to a power plate its well worth incorporating at the end of your sessions, however its a big expense if your looking for cardio fitness and there is much better cheaper or even free ways to boost cardio up.

    The power Plate is quite interesting. I Although I am very dedicated to extremely hard, intense workouts, I have never heard of Power Plate. It seems like something to be used in conjunction with working out. It also seems great for those unable to work out strenuously (ie elderly).
    Perhaps there is good synergy between the Power Plate and exercise.Do you think that gyms will start to promote the use of the Power Plate along with traditional exercise?

      Hi Chuck,

      There is a great synergy between power plates and exercise if done right, and like you said for special tyoppes of people such as obese and elderly who just arnt quite at the level required power plate is awsome.

      I have noticed a uptake between gyms promoting power plates, however its sad to say but a lot of trainers are not knowledgable about power plates or dont beliive in them.

    Hey, this looks really good. I’ve never seen anything quite like this before. Well, the nearest thing to this that I’ve seen years ago was one of those belts that you wear that delivers shocks to your abdomen. But this tones your whole body just by standing on it? Does it work in a similar way to when you sit on one of those inflatable balls that forces you to tense your core muscles?

      Hi Marcus,

      They are unusual and do believe but cant confirm they was inspired by the old belt type machine, probably was though.

      They do activate the core like a swiss ball but not quite the same.

    As someone who has made the recent decision to lose some weight, i found this review incredibly valuable.

    Like most people, I hate using treadmills, and using something like the Power Plate, could help me to achieve shed the extra pounds without having to spend hours running on a treadmill.

    This review was well written and a clear breakdown of the features and associated benefits have left me feeling that Im going to have to think carefully about using equipment at some point in the foreseable future.

      Hi,

      Running for long periods on treadmills isn’t as beneficial as once thought have a look at this and tell me what you think High intensity Training Workouts.

      Power Plate MY3 is great for people such as yourself who prefer the less exhaustive approach
