Resumen

MARTINEZ-PARDO, Esmeraldo; MARTINEZ-RUIZ, Enrique; ALCARAZ, Pedro E.  y  RUBIO-ARIAS, Jacobo A.. Effects of whole-body vibration training on body composition and physical fitness in recreationally active young adults. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.5, pp.1949-1959. ISSN 1699-5198.  http://dx.doi.org/10.3305/nh.2015.32.5.9672.

In the last decade, it has been suggested that whole- body vibration training (WBV) may increase neuromuscular performance and consequently affect the muscular improvement as either acute response to vibration or chronic adaptation training. Vibrating platforms generate frequencies from 5-45 Hz and vertical oscillations of 1-11 mm peak to peak, affecting more or less intensity acceleration changing by combining frequency and amplitude. Vibration training, in a session as various offers different results in regard to changes in body composition and in increasing the vertical jump, sprint, and the different manifestations of force development. These promising results await further research to establish parameters (duration, frequency and amplitude) with vibration stimulation in young active subjects. This literature review provides an update on the scientific evidence on the body vibrations in order to answer the question whether WBV, meaning the exercise by increasing the gravitational load collection, is a treatment option if the aim is to improve neuromuscular function, flexibility, balance, agility, coordination and body composition.
