Keeping your body healthy is something very important, especially as we get older. As a mother myself, I know how difficult it is to work, be a mother, wife and housekeeper.
With such a busy lifestyle it is always good to do exercise little and often or when you can fit it in, for example, taking a walk to your local shop instead of taking the car. This is a good start and you will be amazed how it tones your body and helps weight loss.
One piece of equipment you could keep in the house which is small and will not take up a lot of room is a power plate. I have one myself and find it very useful and do try to go on it when I have a spare fifteen minutes in the evening or at the weekend.
Power plates are very good for toning and come with an exercise booklet. The exercises cover many aspects of the body like toning up your bum, legs, arms and it is also good if you suffer form back problems or weak muscles. If you work on strengthening your stomach, this also helps support the back.
The power plate is also good for circulatory problems, however, always check with the supplier should you suffer from any health issues or if you have any queries or questions ask them and I’m sure they will advise you.
Power Plate machines are becoming accepted in the medical field for the treatment of different types of illnesses and injuries.
From what I’ve read in my own booklet, this type of exercise is good for the following conditions:
Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Osteoporosis, Diabetes, Arthritis, Rheumatism and Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease, Lower Back Pain, Obesity, Circulation problems, Lymph Oedema, Varicose Veins.
When used, you may feel a slight busy, tingly sensation around the legs or the area where you’ve used the power plate; this is quite normal, in fact, this sensation is your circulation, the rhythmic contractions of the muscle encourage blood circulation.
