Vibration Training has potential uses to athletes, but won’t be replacing hard work in the gym any time soon. May have real value to some populations and as a rehab tool. I cover Vibration Training while stopping by Northeastern Chiropractic.

    Hi Will,
    Thanks for all you do! Knowing your nature is to study the science behind any medicine or exercise you do or recommend, I’m wondering what type of research you have done on Chiropractic adjustments themselves. I see from this video that you frequent a Chiropractor and while I know many people have had success with them, I have also read that some doctors don’t consider the chiropractic adjustment as beneficial to your spine long term. And of course we’ve all heard that once you go to a chiro you never stop going to a chiro.
    All of that makes me wonder what research has been done about both short term and long term effects of chiropractic adjustments and I know you’re the man with the means and background to have the answers!
    Perhaps this could be a future post!

      Dave, hard to answer the Q with yes/no answers. Data is mixed, but I find chiropractic helpful, and like ALL professions, depends to some degree on the practitioner. It clearly helps many people, but it’s just one tool in the tool box vs a cure all thing.

    I am a big fan of training on a vibration platform. Unfortunately, none of the current commercial vibration platforms are suitable for weightlifting, IMO. Either they have a low weight limit (most of the expensive ones have a 500 pound weight limit) or, like the one Will was using, they don’t provide enough up and down movement. So, I built my own vibration platform. At 80% of my 1RM, I can perform twice as many reps in the squat while standing on my vibration platform. And I can use 17% more weight with my squat 1RM while standing on the platform. Isolation exercises are less dramatic; I can only perform 50% more reps with a biceps curl while standing on my platform. Needless to say, I perform exercises on the platform whenever possible.
