How does it work?
Unlike conventional training which works voluntary muscle movements, WBVT stimulates involuntary muscle movement through the involuntary stretch reflex. This works the same way as the patella reflex, when the doctor taps just below the kneecap and the lower leg moves upwards in an involuntary manner. Involuntary muscle activation yields a number of benefits not seen with regular exercise.
