Accelerated Health and Fitness at Home

Power Plate’s whole body and targeted vibration training delivers accelerated health, fitness and wellness results, whatever the fitness level or training style. With extensive social distancing measures now in place, most people will be spending much, if not all, of their time at home. Self-isolation can mean far fewer opportunities to be physically active, especially if you are used to spending time at the gym or participating in community sport activities. The home environment naturally encourages the opportunity to be more sedentary (sitting or reclining), whilst catching up on the latest Netflix series! This can be a real concern for people, especially those with underlying health issues who perhaps can’t get out un-aided for even the designated ‘one walk per day ‘.

‘Boxing’ Day: Preparation & Recovery

If you are anything like me then sometimes when you see an inspirational movie it can often give you that extra get up and go to start moving and hit the gym, or in this case the bag! Creed 2, the much-awaited sequel and next chapter in the Rocky Balboa dynasty has now been released and I was there at the opening weekend. Feeling inspired the next day, the gloves went on and an adrenaline-charged bag session ensued.

Preparing for the Snow Plough – A beginners guide to getting ready for the slopes

0

As a self-classified intermediate skier having discovered, and subsequently fell in love with the sport 5 years ago, I still vividly remember, as do my hips and knees, the first visit to the indoor ski center. Although I expected it to be challenging, what I had’t quite bargained for was the ‘snow plough’, and my distinct inability to access the required range of movement to be able to get into the position and to be able to stop. As the instructor patiently explained the need to go wider and then turn your feet in and push the inside of the skies into the snow. Although I knew exactly what he was asking, it was incredibly difficult from a mobility perspective. On the first attempt down a slight incline I decided to use the group of people in front waiting at the bottom as an alternative way to stop.

With this in mind, we are sharing out top tips to staying healthy in mind and body during lockdown helping you to Prepare, Perform and Recover.

Prepare

1. Start your day with a series of stretches to warm up your body and prepare your mind.

Did You Know – The Power Plate Roller can be used to promote blood flow and fascia release whilst increasing flexibility and enhancing range of motion – an ideal way to start the day!

2. Commit to having a nutritious healthy breakfast every day to keep you on track, kick start your metabolism, and improve concentration. It’s the most important meal of the day – make it count!

3. According to Deepak Chopra, everything that happens in the universe begins with setting intention. When you decide to buy a birthday present, wiggle your toes, or call a friend, it all starts with intention – so start thinking about your intentions for the day!

Perform

1. Do you know what you want to have achieved by the end of today? If you want to succeed or perform, you need to set goals. Each goal requires the completion of a set of tasks or steps to get you over the finish line.

2. Use this time to broaden your horizons and invest in yourself. There is a vast amount of resources online to help with your learning and self development. Come away from this situation with new or improved skills in your arsenal.

3. Take time to exercise. Take a walk in the park or a run around the block. Whatever your preference, just keep moving.

Did You Know – With whole body vibration training, you get a complete, full-body workout incorporating stretch, balance, core, strength-building and massage, all in as little as 15 minutes. So, whether you are working from home or home-schooling your kids you can always find time to fit in a total body workout!

Recover

1. Start feeling more grateful, and appreciative of the good things in your life: look for them and appreciate them. Pay attention to those good things. Express your gratitude to yourself, write it down, or thank someone. This is a really great way to end the day on a positive note!

2. Even though you may be feeling exhausted at the end of a busy day, take some time to calm your mind, and reduce anxiety by introducing yoga into your  evening routine. Yoga can not only prepare us for some shut eye physically but also mentally. Doing yoga before bedtime will help relax the body and stop the mind-chatter.

Did You Know – Just 10 minutes of mindful movement on Power Plate can improve balance, promote better posture, reduce neck and back pain, relieve tiredness, reduce stress. The perfect way to unwind.

3. With the constant ‘noise’ from news alerts, social media posts, and persistent notifications and updates, sleep has never been more important! Try setting  a regular bedtime/wake time and programme it into your smartphone so that during those times all notifications are switched off.

‘Boxing’ Day: Preparation & Recovery

If you are anything like me then sometimes when you see an inspirational movie it can often give you that extra get up and go to start moving and hit the gym, or in this case the bag! Creed 2, the much-awaited sequel and next chapter in the Rocky Balboa dynasty has now been released and I was there at the opening weekend. Feeling inspired the next day, the gloves went on and an adrenaline-charged bag session ensued.

However, I made sure I was sensible and took a few short minutes to warm up on Power Plate, focusing particularly on the wrists, shoulders and thoracic spine and that is the context for this blog.

Preparation and Recovery is one of the easiest and most beneficial ways Power Plate and vibration can be introduced into your workouts, and a boxing fitness session is no exception. In fact it is very important, particularly if new to boxing, that the wrists and shoulders are adequately prepared for the repetitive and variable impact forces of hitting a bag or any kind of pad work. In a way, it can be likened to preparing the foot, ankle and hips for running and walking.

Power Plate becomes the perfect time-efficient warm up (Preparation) tool as not only does it rapidly increase circulation and muscle activation for more efficient movement body wide, but due to the low-level forces (ground reaction forces) applied to the body when in contact with the platform, the proprioceptors in the tendons, ligaments and joints are also ‘woken up’ and thus along with the muscles and connective tissue in the upper body are far better prepared for the impact and challenge of hitting the bag.

I would therefore like to share with you a simple, step-by-step Boxing Warm up that will only take a few minutes but will really get you ready physically and mentally for a great workout time and time again.

The video below shows the specific exercises following our Movement System, and includes the following exercises using the settings highlighted:
