    The Short-Term Effect of Whole-Body Vibration Training on Vertical Jump, Sprint, and Agility Performance

    ABSTRACT

    Cochrane, D.J., S.J. Legg, and M.J. Hooker. The short-term effect of whole-body vibration training on vertical jump, sprint, and agility performance. J. Strength Cond. Res. 18(4):000000. 2004.Previous studies have suggested that short-term whole-body vibration (WBV) training produces neuromuscular improvement similar to that of power and strength training. However, it is yet to be determined whether short-term WBV exposure produces neurogenic enhancement for power, speed, and agility. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect short-term WBV training had on vertical jump, sprint, and agility performance in nonelite athletes. Twenty-four sport science students (16 men and 8 women) were randomly assigned to 2 groups: WBV training or control. Each group included 8 men and 4 women. Countermovement jump (CMJ) height, squat jump (SJ) height, sprint speed over 5, 10, and 20 m, and agility (505, up and back) were performed by each participant before and after 9 days of either no training (control) or WBV training. Perceived discomfort of every participant was recorded after daily WBV exposure and nonexposure. There were no significant differences between WBV and control groups for CMJ, SJ, sprints, and agility. Perceived discomfort differed between the first and subsequent days of WBV training (p < 0.05); however, there was no difference between the WBV and control groups. It is concluded that short-term WBV training did not enhance performance in nonelite athletes.

    I read something about this sort of thing in a magazine a few months back. Apparently there is Gym equipment (similar to a treadmill or elliptical) that simple vibrates the user. Sounded silly to me, but it could be the extreme lazy man's workout.

    Regardless of silliness, that's an interesting study.

    there's **** about this on the avant board from spook. This and hyperthermic temperatures postworkout, i.e. sauna, some interesting stuff. I am actually trying the sauna post workout out for awhile, although i am starting a test cycle soon so it'll be hard to tell what it actually does. either way, its cool that they are studying this kinda stuff, if you aren't progressing you are regressing imo

    Good post!! Just because it is new and unproven does not necessarily mean that it does not work- ten years ago doctors were still saying that steroids did not improve athletic performance, and we know how that turned out (cough, Balco, cough)

    Interested to see if this goes the way of electrical muscle stimulators and the like, or it blows up and starts a huge trend. You never know!!

    Hopefully that link is allowed, if not sorry, I will get rid of it. That has some info about a couple of different new ideas with studies. Spook and par are some smart dudes, interesting stuff. Like I said, I have been trying the sauna immediately after my workout and I will say it feels kinda different, like I get some sort of tingling sensation in the muscles I have worked, but this could be entirely in my head. either way, interesting stuff, and im a sucker for naked old men in the sauna anyways

    At least it's a justification for my vibrating butt plug that looks like Donald Duck.

    my gym had one of these vibrating platforms that sounds very simialar to what was used in the abstract. you could control the amount of time or the amount of vibration used. i found out that this piece of equipment costs $10,000 but our club leased it for a year and nobody used it. occasionally, i did push-ups or bodyweight squats on the platform because it was a different feel. i wouldve used it more if i has read this earlier.

    Intermittent hyperthermia enhances skeletal muscle regrowth and attenuates oxidative damage following reloading.Selsby JT, Rother S, Tsuda S, Pracash O, Quindry JC, Dodd SL.
    Applied Physiology and Kinesiology, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, United States.

    Skeletal muscle reloading following disuse is characterized by profound oxidative damage. This study tested the hypothesis that intermittent hyperthermia during reloading attenuates oxidative damage and augments skeletal muscle regrowth following immobilization. Forty animals were randomly divided into four groups: Control (Con), Immobilized (Im), Reloaded (RC), and Reloaded and heated (RH). All groups but Con were immobilized for seven days. Animals in the RC and RH groups were then reloaded for seven days with (RH) or without (RC) hyperthermia (41-41.5 degrees C for 30 min on alternating days) during reloading. Heating resulted in ~25% elevation in HSP expression (p<0.05) and an approximate 30% greater soleus regrowth (p<0.05) in RH when compared to RC. Further, oxidant damage was lower in the RH group when compared to RC as nitrotyrosine and HNE was returned to near baseline when heating was combined with reloading. Reduced oxidant damage was independent of antioxidant enzymes (MnSOD, CuZnSOD, Cat, GPX, GRX). In summary, these data suggest that intermittent hyperthermia during reloading attenuates oxidative stress and improves the rate of skeletal muscle regrowth during reloading after immobilization. Key words: oxidant stress, heat shock protein, antioxidant, oxidative stress, hypertrophy.

    I dunno how good for post workout is it to sit in a hot sauan and dehydrate and not eat anthing for an houur after training. that cant be good for recovery

    Have you heard about the "gym equipment" that basically simulates a bull-riding? Its supposed to strengthen your total midsection.

    Me too- it sounds like some sort of weird "Urban Cowboy" 80's hell or something- do they throw in the mechanical bull, line-dancing, and bar fights for atmosphere?

    j/k One of my best friends in the world was a top-notch bull and bronc rider back in the 70's- he is a commercial pilot now- kind of an odd change of events
