Working Out with a Whole Body Vibration Machine

Lose the fat just by standing in place? It does seem a little unrealistic. It’s no surprise that so many people have a really hard time believing that it is true. But whole body vibration machines are showing promise in delivering many results, as was demonstrated in recent research studies.

Believe it or not, now there is an exercise device that is able to make it easier for you to reduce your weight, and the only thing you have to do is just stand on the vibration plate.  It might be hard to imagine, but researchers are finding that it is not that unrealistic after all.  Working out on a vibrating machine provides quite a few health advantages.  One example is that you can eliminate belly fat by working out on one of these machines.

Russians were the first to use vibration machines during missions. However, they weren’t the first to make use of the technology.  A doctor from Battle Creek, MI produced a vibrating chair for his patients way back in the year 1895. The physician who introduced this piece of equipment was none other than Dr. John Kellogg, one of the two brothers who developed Kellogg’s Corn Flakes.

So just how is it possible to slim down by standing still?  It is due to the simple fact that even though you are immobile, your muscles are not.  Your muscle tissues are tensing several times each and every second you are on the machine in response to the machine’s vibrations.  These quick contractions help tone and strengthen the muscle tissue.  It does not take a lot of time to complete your daily workout with the vibration exercise machine.  It takes just ten minutes each day.

For many people, the weight loss and fat-burning that result from the use of the vibrating machine are plenty, but that isn’t all the device is useful for.  Some of additional advantages are improved flexibility and strength.  You will discover that as the muscles in your body strengthen, your performance in some athletic abilities will improve as well.  Vibration exercise machines may also help delay osteoporosis by reducing the loss of bone density.

Perhaps you are tempted to shop for a vibrating machine by analyzing the asking price alone.  However, you should be careful not to purchase a vibration exercise machine that was manufactured in China from inexpensive materials.  The shaking that the device has to withstand puts a great deal of stress on it, so you should consider a version that is made of steel.  The form of vibration is something else that you should take into consideration before you buy a vibration machine.  Don’t purchase a vibration machine that has piston, or tri-planar, vibration.  The most effective kind of vibration is pivoting vibration, which is also called oscillating vibration.

Watch Out For HCG Weight Loss Side Effects

There is a new diet gaining attention in the world of weight loss, it is called the HCG diet. This diet uses a chemical called HCG (human chorionic ponadrotpin), a hormone produced by women who are pregnant. This chemical is the same chemical that allows pregnant women to burn the extra calories they consume to feed their growing baby. Many individuals claim that the diet works for them while others suffer from the negative HCG diet side effects.

What to Watch Out For

There are several common HCG side effects. One of them is reoccurring headaches. These can happen for several reasons such as sugar withdrawals or not getting enough food in your body. This happens because the diet only allows 500 calories per day, which is not enough for a normal person. Another symptom that is caused by this low calorie intake is fatigue. This is usually coupled with inhibited concentration skills and insomnia as the brain becomes impaired from lack of food. Many people also complain of constipation while on this diet but that can be fixed by drinking more water, which is a key part of weight loss. Blood clots, trouble breathing, and depression are dangerous side effects of the diet that should be looked out for. If they happen seek immediate medical attention. Women who are pregnant or are breast feeding are not allowed on this diet along with people who have certain cancers.

These and other HCG weight loss side effects happen for two reasons. The first is the improper use of the HCG hormone drops and the other poor dieting. Remember to always consult a doctor before starting any diet, especially one like HCG because of the hormones involved. Dieting should be safe and healthy. Remember to follow the instructions of the dietitian to the letter.

Leasing Gym Equipment – An Economical Alternative to Work Out at Home

Owning your own home gym equipment will require an initial investment, but some people don’t have the money to spend a huge sum of money up front.  Don’t let this discourage you from working out; there are other options for you to get back in shape without breaking the bank.  The most common alternative from buying your own fitness machines and equipment is to join a gym and pay a small monthly membership fee.  Some people would still rather work out in the privacy of their home, so the local gym wouldn’t be an option.  Instead of buying your own home fitness machines, another way you can still work out at home is by leasing gym equipment.

Leasing or renting fitness machines and equipment has many benefits.  One of the benefits, as mentioned above, is the fact that you can still work out in the privacy of your own home.  You don’t have to wait for a machine to be available for you when you have you own home gym.  Also, leasing gym equipment allows you to use a higher quality machine than you would normally buy.  The key to leasing home gym equipment is to look for a leasing company that offers a low interest rate with a guaranteed option at the end of the contract to let you buy the machine if you choose.  This is a great way for you to own cheap weight lifting equipment that’s better in quality, and it won’t hurt your pocket up front.

Another benefit of leasing equipment for your home gym is that it allows you to have more than one machine at a time.  I don’t know about you, but having just one machine at a time is pretty boring and un-motivating.   Having an option with multiple machines helps keep you motivated to work out by switching from aerobic workouts to weight lifting.
