The Power Plate My3 is the baby sister to the My5. The smaller plate surface and simpler console offers Acceleration Training at a moderate price. Using the same technology as the Power Plate My5 and Pro5 the vibration causes your flexed muscle to involuntarily contract up to 35 times per second.
The My3 model is ideal for the novice exerciser that will use it for the basic exercises and for overall wellness such as circulation and stretching. The smaller plate surface does restrict the number of exercises that can be performed and may be limiting for someone taller or larger. The total weight of the machine is 126lbs .
Benefits of Acceleration Training include building bone density; muscle tone; improving stability and balance; weight loss; defeating cellulite and a reduction in belly fat.(see Power Plate Medical Studies). It is especially beneficial for people suffering from debilitating diseases such as Parkinson's; Muscular Sclerosis; Cerebral Palsy; arthritis and osteoporosis.
