Vibration Machine

Thinking of getting a vibrating exercise machine has anyone tried it is it any good? Will also do squats and other exercise on it. My main goal for this is to tone my bum and thighs. Reading a bit about it and some says it’s equivalent to 1 hour in the gym. Was thinking like 30 mins and squatting on it everyday has anyone seen results with theirs? Thanks

    I used to use one in the gym I belonged to a few years ago. A few minutes was enough to make me feel ill. Now I just stick to doing squats and exercise on solid ground. You may get on well with it, but they're expensive for what may soon become a coat-hanger.

    Most of those don't work unless the are making direct contact with muscles (any fat makes them ineffective). They also only make a small difference in the subset of the population who have very little body fat- pro athletes. Your "bum and thighs" would not get stronger or firmer, most likely.

    Be skeptical of anything that is a "quick fix."

    This sounds like the machine my mom had back in the late 60’s. You stood on it, wrapped a heavy belt around your waist and it was supposed to vibrate you thin. Needless to say, it didn’t do a damn thing for her, but boy us kids had fun when she wasn’t around.

    You know how you hold your voice just so when you’re vibrating real hard and your voice goes uhuhuhuhuhuh? Better than any yoga ohms, lol.

    This is the first thing I thought of when I read the title of this thread...
