Most people would agree that a vibration plate is an amazing workout equipment. However, not many realize that a vibration plate is probably the most versatile workout equipment you can get for yourself. In fact, if you know how to make the most out of your vibration plate, you will realize there is not much need to buy additional expensive gear in order to get good exercise. This blog will introduce 6 simple exercises that you may not have thought could easily and effectively be completed with the help of a vibration plate. These exercises are common and popular and will enable you to target various parts of the body to produce significant results in a short time.

  1.     SQUATS.

Squats are the perfect example of a simple workout routine: a quick and efficient way to burn calories and lose weight. Doing squats efficiently and consistently will strengthen the tendons, bones, and ligaments around the legs, helping you develop those enviably toned legs like an athlete.

The vibration plate offers the perfect surface on which to do your squats. With the vibrations, you could even introduce an element of instability, working on your balance simultaneously. Here are a few steps on how to do your squats on a vibration plate:

Step 1: Watch your standing position. Ensure that your legs are wide apart. The ideal distance between your feet is shoulder length.

Step 2: Lower your body position, easing gradually into your squats. You must lower yourself slowly and gracefully for good results. Moving too quickly would result in quick fatigue without having achieved much.

Posture Tip: Keep your back straight even as you squat, and ensure your knees remain behind your toes.

You can easily complete all these steps on the vibration plate's solid, even ground, increasing the frequency to impact the bone and muscles as you go.


If you are interested in strengthening and shaping the muscles around the buttocks area, lunges are the way to go! Everyone knows that. However, the benefits of doing lunges are much more than that. From the hips to the quads, to hamstrings and calves, lunges shape and strengthen almost every muscle in the lower body.

On the vibration plate, you can take your lunges to the next level. Pay attention to the following steps:

Step 1: Watch your standing position: Stand with your feet wide apart.

Step 2: Take a step forward and bend both knees, then lower your body until your knees are bent, giving a sort of 90-degree angle.

Step 3: Shift body position: Shift your body weight onto the lead leg and remain in this position for some seconds

Step 4: Push off and switch feet by bringing up the back leg into the forward position, ensuring it lands in the lunge position.

Posture Tip: As you get into the lunge position, keep your front knee behind your toes and lower your back knee until it is almost touching the plate.

The vibration plate provides a perfect surface for you to perform both walking and standing lunges. You could even rotate between the two, getting closer and closer to those toned legs as you keep moving on the vibration plate.

  1.     LEG RAISES

The rectus abdominis is the part of the body between the ribs and the public bone at the front of the pelvis where six packs appear. Leg raises are the perfect exercise to specifically target that area and produce a sexy set of packs.

Again, the vibration plate makes things a lot easier, and just in a few steps:

Step 1: Stand with your widespread apart

Step 2: Lift one foot off the plate, holding it in your hand for a few seconds, before lowering it back down.

Step 3: Alternate between two feet, and keep the workout going in that manner.

Tip: For impact and effect, make sure to keep the foot on the plate straight.

As the impact hits your rectus abdominis, it won’t be long before you start feeling the formation of abs on the inside.

  1.     CALF RAISES

Here are two more terms related to the human body: gastrocnemius muscles and soleus muscles. These terms refer to the muscles that make up the calf. Regular calf raises directly target these muscles, stimulating growth and helping shape and define them.

On your vibration plate, calf raises are quite easy:

Step 1:  stand with your feet apart,

Step 2: Lift your heels off the plate, propping yourself up on your toes, and hold for a few seconds before lowering back down.

This is an exercise in balance, strength, and resistance. With these steps, the impact of the exercise is not limited to the arms but distributed fairly all over the body for all-around benefits.

  1.     ARM RAISES:

Arm workouts are not just about having beautifully curved shoulders or well-defined upper arms with a rounded appearance. They are also about increasing shoulder mobility and achieving a greater range of motion and stability, ultimately making you more prolific at even more activities like lifts or presses.

Standing on your vibration plate, you can easily keep your weights or resistance bands in place as you perform bicep curls, triceps extensions, and shoulder presses. Amazingly, the surface of the vibration plate is ideal for such tasks which are not just a test of strength but also of balance.

  1.     WALL SPITS

Wall splits produce a unique positive effect on human health. Studies have found that frequently performing wall sits contributes to lower blood pressure. This is not surprising: a wall sit is not just about strengthening your legs and thighs. It also strengthens your back, quads, and core.

With the additional vibrations of the plate, you could experience double the impact with disruption of balance, which makes the whole exercise even more fun.

Step 1; Stand with your back against a wall, feet spread out on the vibration plate.

Step 2: Slowly slide your back down along the wall, ensuring that your knees stay bent 90 degrees.

Step 3: Hold for about 30 seconds, then push, go up, and repeat the same process if possible. Remember, it is not just about your thighs getting more and more toned, your blood pressure is improving as you mold into better shape.
