No1 Supplier Of LF2 Vibration Plates. Works Like A FLABeLOS.

How The LF2 Helps & What You Can Do To Increase Muscle Strength & Flexibility.

Whole body vibration (WBV) has been known to help with strengthening of muscles and increase in flexibility. How this works is the LF2 vibration plate pivots up and down in a seesaw motion at specifically programmed speeds. As your body tries to naturally stabilise itself, your muscles contract in order to keep you upright. It is this intensity and frequency of movement that causes the muscles to contract rapidly and strengthen muscle tone. 

Using the LF2 for 10 minutes is the equivalent of 30-60 minutes of weight lifting!! Standing on the LF2, every cell in your body vibrates at the same speed the plate is vibrating which is around 20-50 times a second. Whereas during regular exercise your muscles only contract 1-2 time a second. Around 90% of muscle fibres involuntarily tense and relax at this speed, (unlike the 40% of fibres during normal exercise) which creates an intense workout and develops more muscle tissue without you actually having to move at all. As a lot of people say “it sounds too good to be true” but extensive research supports these claims, and anyone who has used the LF2 can tell you, it can be hard work! Even though you may feel like you’re just stood there, the amount of work your muscles are doing in turn increases muscles strength and in only 10 minutes! Ask anyone who has used an LF2 vibration plate they will tell you at first the feelings you will experience are none like you’ve experienced before. People may suffer with a stitch at first, however this will gradually ease off. This automatically proves the LF2 is working!

Sit Up Exercise for the LF2.

Many different positions have been developed to target different muscle groups. These targeted exercises involve getting into a position on the plate and the vibration multiplies the work done by your muscles dramatically. Holding a sit-up position for one minute on the LF2, as shown in the image, for example, feels like you’ve done 40 sit-ups in one minute.

According to Dr. DeOrio, “studies have shown that a mere 12 minutes of training on a WBV plate is equal to a 1.5-hour workout with weights. And since it’s accomplished with little amount of stress to your joints, tendons and ligaments, it can be a very good therapy regimen if you’ve suffered injuries, if you’re elderly, or have disease conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia or multiple sclerosis which would normally limit your fitness program.”

How The LF2 Improves Blood Circulation, Lymphatic Drainage & Cellulite.

The LookFab2 & FLABeLOS vibration plate has so many other benefits except the obvious toning and burning fat benefit. They also help with improving blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and cellulite. Cellulite can cause many men and women to have low self esteem and cause them not to go out and dare to wear shorts or swimwear, which is such a shame! Using WBV like on an LF2 vibration plate can help to dramatically change the appearance of cellulite and abolish it all together! A recent article found here regarding how WBV can help with cellulite is a very interesting read, and recommend anyone to give it a read. The article basically explains how WBV helps with cellulite and the science behind it.

It says how using machines such as the LF2 with it’s WBV workout is excellent and it can successfully “replace strength workouts and can be a time efficient and safe alternative for people who don’t have the time, the energy or the motivation for hitting the gym daily.”cellulite

Also as cellulite is diminished a natural collagen is increased which in turn releases bacteria, improving tissue layers. As cellulite is dissolved, connective tissue increases, revealing an enhancement in skin texture.

After a training on the WBV Machines a temporarily alteration of shape and appearance of cellulite will happen. WBV Machines will flatten out adipose globules located under the skin and will make the skin look smoother. On a longer period, the combination of muscle strengthening and local fat burning will indirectly lead to a reduction in cellulites. The look of the skin will noticeably be smoother and more toned by lowering the percentage of fat tissue and increasing the lean mass. At the same time vibration machine activates the muscles, strengthens them and contributes to better circulation and lymphatic drainage.

The LF2 & FLABeLOS vibration plate reduces lymph edema by improving circulation to the lymphatic system, “thereby helping remove waste and bacteria from the system more effectively than passive range of motion or electrical muscle stimulation. What’s more, most people suffering from lymph edema are highly sensitive for physical contact on the edema. This contact can be avoided with WBV Machines. People suffering lymph edema will highly appreciate relaxing exercises with both calve in elevated position on the vibrating plate!”

Another good read we have recently found here explains how the LF2 helps with lymphatic drainage and improving blood circulation, it states that vibration exercises can also replace stretching, and this helps in smoothening the skin as well. Which is another great fact for this people suffering from cellulite. It also explains how after using WBV people find they have a quicker mending time after working out, runners, cyclist etc find that using the LF2 or FLABeLOS seem to recover a lot quicker and are able to start their training with ease. This is due to the better blood flow gained whilst using WBV, “better blood flow means greater flexibility, muscles warm up faster, tendons stretch more effectively; resulting in a more relaxed and agile body.”

One of our very own customers can vouch for the LF2 and how it helped him and his condition.

“I bought the LookFab2 machine back in 2012, and after only a few session on the LF2 vibration plate I found it significantly helped balance my diabetes. My insulin intake reduced. It also really helped with my lymphatic drainage. I would highly recommend the LF2 if anyone suffers with a similar condition as mine.” – Nigel Kersh.

How Vibration Plates Are Proven To Benefit Runners By Keeping Muscles & Joints In Peak Form.

Runners are well known for not wanting to spend time on gym-based strength work, core stability exercises and stretching, preferring instead to “just run.” Runners are also notorious for getting injured. Running-specific exercises and functional flexibility are suggested to keep muscles and joints in peak running form.olympic-track-athlete-runner-race-10001901

Runners will be pleased to hear the secret to avoiding injury and recovering quickly between runs doesn’t lie in spending hours lifting weights or lying on gym mats easing out every muscle. Just 10 minutes, two or three times a week, on whole body vibration equipment will do the trick.

The science behind whole body vibration:

Whole body vibration training speeds up recovery and regeneration, and a few specific exercises performed on the vibrating platform of vibration plates can work wonders. This is due to the rapid, harmonic vibration of the vibration plate platform which facilitates a number of positive responses within the body including increased blood flow and circulation.OTO FLABeLOS

When targeted exercises are performed on the vibration plate, there is a rapid increase in blood flow and nutrient supply to the key muscles and connective tissue involved in running.

In addition to enhancing flexibility and range of movement, vibration plates, such as FLABeLOS and LF2 have been scientifically shown to provide active recovery by stimulating a circulatory response that removes the metabolic by-products of exercise, drives more oxygen into the muscle tissues and aids lymphatic drainage.

You can read how the Look Fab 2 works here. Which goes into detail how the muscles contract and what causes the toning of the body and helps with the easing of tense muscles and joints.

The LF2 & FLABeLOS vibration plate can help runners ranging from speed-focused 5K runners to steadily-paced marathoners, runners are prime candidates for stiff muscles and sore joints. We have exercises and stretches focused on the key muscles and joint problems related to running, particularly the foot and ankle, hips and upper back. These movements can be performed on the ground but will be significantly enhanced when performed on a vibrating plate. Each exercise has been selected to quickly and efficiently condition and prepare the body to cope effectively with the demands of running, enhance performance and reduce injury risk.

You can find these exercises by downloading our Look Fab 2 App http://lookfabulous2.appy.li/appyli_microsite.php

Exercises such as this can be found on the LF2 App which is perfect for runners, working the inner thighs, and stretching the hamstrings.

Do You Suffer With Diabetes? Read Here To Find Out How The LookFab2 Can Benefit You!

Diabetes is a common life-long health condition. There are 3.3 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and an estimated 590,000 people who have the condition, but don’t know it.

  • Insulin is the hormone produced by the pancreas that allows glucose to enter the body’s cells, where it is used as fuel for energy so we can work, play and generally live our lives. It is vital for life.
  • Glucose comes from digesting carbohydrate and is also produced by the liver.
  • If you have diabetes, your body cannot make proper use of this glucose so it builds up in the blood and can’t be used as fuel.
  • There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes.What-is-diabetes-700x556

Diabetes develops when glucose can’t enter the body’s cells to be used as fuel. This happens when either:

  • There is no insulin to unlock the cells (Type 1)
  • There is not enough insulin or the insulin is there but not
    working properly (Type 2).

We have found cases where our customers have either type 1 or type 2 and the use of the LF2 vibration plate has dramatically helped to ease their condition. We always say make sure you check with your GP prior to using the LF2 machine, not everyone is the same, and even though the LF2 has helped a few cases it may not always help you. So please, please check with your GP before using.

One of our customer’s Nigel Kersh from London, has told us how after purchasing the LF2 it helped with his insulin intake and lymphatic drainage.

“I bought the LookFab2 machine back in 2012, and after only a few session on the LF2 vibration plate I found it significantly helped balance my diabetes. My insulin intake reduced. It also really helped with my lymphatic drainage. I would highly recommend the LF2 if anyone suffers with a similar condition as mine.” – Nigel Kersh

We are always researching and speaking to customers about their experience using the LF2 vibration plate and we’re always finding out new things, how it’s helped them with their health issues.

Wondering Where WBV Came From… Have A Look At This.

The history of WBV usually begins with references to its use in the Russian space program. It had been observed that cosmonauts (as well as our astronauts) tended to lose bone density and muscular strength during their mostly zero-gravity space missions. Russian scientist and former gymnast Vladimir Nazarov adopted the idea of vibrational training, using it to strengthen Russian cosmonauts during space flights.treadmill_sm

Vibration therapy was first introduced in the 1860s by Swedish physician Gustav Zander, who pioneered many mechanical exercise devices. His Zander Institutes were an early version of today’s health clubs. In 1895, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg— a health enthusiast invented a whole body vibration machine, initially configured as a chair. A standing version was brought out later.

Returning to Nazarov, he discovered that not only did WBV stop the loss of bone density, it actually increased bone density, and strengthened muscle tissue, as well. Soon after, WBV was employed as a training aid for elite athletes. He spoke of a substantial increase in flexibility and strength after the application of vibrations in the athletes he studied.

In 1999, Dutch Olympic trainer Guus van der Meer would bring this technology to the health and fitness industry. Within a short time, testimonials for his machine started to appear, from celebrities, rehabilitation centers, and famous athletes. Typically, the machines offer a selection of vibration frequencies—as high as 60 Hz.olympic-track-athlete-runner-race-10001901

Golinsky is a natural bodybuilder, and believes that WBV has improved his strength, and has jump-started his workouts. His office is one of the few chiropractic centers to have WBV equipment, and his patients really seem to like it. Only a few minutes are needed to experience WBV.boost-testosterone
