Power Plate lovers claim that 10 minutes of ab workouts, core & lower back exercises on this machine can bring the same results as a 60-minute conventional workout because it works out many muscle groups at the same time.
WHERE CAN I FIND A POWER PLATE?
Nowadays you can find a power plate in most gyms and power plate private studios which also offer classes. If you have never used a Power Plate before, you may want to ask a trainer at your gym to show you how to use it or discover more HERE before trying the workout.
