Workout Of The Week: Whole Body Vibration

The WBV mice underwent 20 minutes of vibration per day, while the treadmill mice spent 45 minutes walking at a slight incline. As you might imagine, the sedentary mice did nothing. When subjected to whole-body vibration and treadmill-based exercise, the obese and diabetic mice gained less weight than their sedentary counterparts. At the end of the 12-week study, the animals on the treadmill-based exercise regime weighed just under 90 percent of the sedentary mice, while those on the WBV program were just over 90 percent the final weight of sedentary subjects.
