Full Body Vibration Platforms use whole-body vibration technology to stimulate your body's natural response to vibration. When your body is subject to vibration, your natural response is to re-stabilize.
What's truly exceptional about Full Body Vibration Platform technology is that it engages more of your muscle fibers, including the slow and fast muscle fibers, and causes them to act simultaneously.
A near-total muscle fiber employment translates into a higher-intensity workout, probably unlike anything you've ever experienced. Full-body vibration exercise enhances your performance while it increases the efficiency of your workout.
With Full Body Vibration Platform, you get a complete, full-body workout incorporating stretch, balance, core, strength, and massage, all in only as little as 15 minutes.
Full Body Vibration Platforms offer a wide array of exercise benefits, including:
- Melting away mass body fat, accelerate weight loss.
- Soothe insomnia efficiently, help you relax.
- Stimulate the intestine, enhance digestion.
- Improves blood circulation.
- Activate joints, relieve arthralgia.
- Increase bone density.
- Rehabilitate injuries and ailments.

The whole body vibration training as a new way to hack your time, your strength and your natural hormones to take your fitness regimen to the next level in less time, which is a really important thing for me. I use the Bulletproof Vibe every day, especially if I've been sitting down at my desk. I have a standing desk that goes up and down, but the ability to vibrate like I am right now really changes things because training with the Bulletproof Vibe as your way of getting whole body vibration can boost your fitness, your strength, your tone, your flexibility, your bone density, your range of motion, and save you time. We're talking like 15 minutes max. According to a study comparing whole body vibration training to conventional training, whole body vibration, like you get with the Bulletproof Vibe, produces higher strength levels within six weeks. It does so through the use of gravity, added acceleration to the force equation and reflexive muscle contraction it provokes.
We're vibrating you at 30 times a second, which is the frequency NASA identified to help astronauts recover from weightlessness more quickly. This is the most studied frequency. Dr. Bosco came to find out that whole body vibration training like you get with the Bulletproof Vibe has a neural effect on muscle growth, meaning it constantly puts your muscles under load. The more you can keep your muscles loaded, the more quickly you can get training gains. According to a weight loss study in Europe, a group using whole body vibration training lost 11% body weight during intervention phase and maintained 10.5% of that loss, compared to a group that used diet and conventional exercise, which only lost 7%.
This is an accelerator for you. In the same study, visceral fat shrank by 48 cubic centimeters in the whole body vibration training group compared to only 18 in the diet and conventional exercise. You see why I like the Bulletproof Vibe? After 10 repetitions of whole-body vibration training, there's a tremendous effect on the hormonal system. In one study, there was a 460% increase in growth hormone, a 7% increase in testosterone, and a 27% decrease in cortisol. Whole body vibration training is pretty darn well studied even though you've probably never heard of it. Overall, this does not represent a stressful stimulus for the neuroendocrine system, which is the opposite of most conventional training. If you go to the Bulletproof Coffee Shop where we have this for you to just play with, you stand on it for even a few minutes, it's actually energizing and refreshing, not tiring.
Studies on the elderly in particular show that whole body vibration training improves strength, quality of life, quality of walking, balance and motor capacity. For seniors with knee osteoarthritis, whole body vibration training actually reduced their proliferative response of TCD4+, which is a medical anagram for counting t-cell-depleted bone marrow. In other words, whole body vibration training seems to help you support healthy bones. Other whole body vibration training benefits: increased lymphatic drainage, increased bone mass and mineral density, increased flexibility, and mobility, metabolic alterations in bones, stomach, bowel, prostate, kidney and bladder, enhances your knee neuromuscular control, immediate improvement in blood circulation, pain reduction, improved proprioception and balance, which is really important, and increased secretion of serotonin and norepinephrine.
Exercise does a lot of things. Doing exercise with a little bit of technology can do a lot of other things to help you maintain an amazing level of health in just less time. If you don't have time to go for a long walk every day but you know you should, maybe you have time to stand on this between meetings. It'll totally change how your body feels and it'll give you more back in less time. That's what being Bulletproof is all about. Let me show you a couple of my really favorite exercises. This is really hard to do when it's vibrating… gonna do my best… the first one you feel an incredible difference. All you do is you stand, you might wanna lean on a wall or something (I don't need to) then plant one foot really well you probably see it vibrating right now – then you carefully lean forward stick out your back leg if you want to and you can pull it off to oppose like this and what I'm feeling right now is huge contraction in my glutes and just tightening of my core in a way that you don't normally get.
The next thing that completely changes things … you'll probably see the change in definition right now… is this. Just come down and hold a plank pose like this and this gets really hard you go down and hold it right here and the thirty times a second of vibration completely basically amplifies what's going on in your chest so you actually get a pump that's pretty unbelievable but the amount of time that you do. And it's actually talking to your nervous system because you've got thirty of these happening a second your body actually thinks it is doing 30 push-ups a second – so you feel it really really quickly! The other thing that makes a huge difference for the backside is just come on down into a bit of a squat just like this.
A normal squat like this you can hold for a while but when you're vibrating forty times a second it's a whole different set of exercises which is really really remarkable. The final thing that will completely blow you away is a stretch and if you have ever done pigeon pose in yoga you like to be opening your hips. You can do things when it's vibrating that really help you open up in a way that you would expect when my favorite poses are to just …do this… Now this is hard enough when you're not vibrating but you're vibrating like this you can see my leg is really able to… just help me fold forward like this… I'm 6’4” and 43 years old Yeah, I use Upgraded Collagen but the whole body vibration platform will really help me get all the way down so that I can be flexible as a tall guy – we're not supposed to be this flexible. But the Bulletproof Vibe helps that takes it to an incredibly high level is using a foam roller this is the most aggressive foam roller on the planet and if you thought foam rolling was rough you have no idea how it can be because now you're getting essentially a full massage…
What I'm going to do is my outer IT band here which is one of the hardest things to do. So all you do is the standard foam rolling things you would normally do except now the former roller is actually amplifying what happens in your muscles. This can be too intense especially with this kind of thing if you're not used to it. And if you need to just relax and recover a little bit as one more thing you can do. check this out – whatever your favorite device like this is you can do some foam roller for a more gentle effect you when something like this and just lean back and now instead of just a stretch that opens things up.
I'm actually getting a vibrating stretch which just helps to open things up and …it feels absolutely amazing… Alright, I'm winded and tired but that's what I do on the Bulletproof Vibe when I want to just restore everything, keep things going, and I don't have time to go for a long walk or to do a full workout – this is pretty amazing. Its space effective, it's time effective, and you feel the difference every time you use it. I love this thing. I've used it for more than two years and I'm very happy to offer it to you.
