Powerplates with Elle – Part 1

Here it is…finally! My first exclusive workout video for ‘keep it simpElle‘!

After writing the ‘Power Plate EssentElle’s‘ post, I realised how little this machine was used! There is usually one tucked away in the corner of your gym which is always free as no one really knows what to do with it!

I have utilised one of my weekly 25 minute session plans and broken it down into a series of 3 short workouts which can be added together (at the end of the series) to make a full 25 minute session!

For now, you can repeat the section 3 times to make a 15 minute workout which can be done alone or added onto your regular gym workout!

What you will need:

1 pair of dumbbells (I’m using just 1.5kg in the video)

Here is the workoutyou can pin this for later too!


Check out these posts for tips on technique: 


Perfect Form: Squats

Perfect Form: Plank  

For Plank Front Raise: Drill Pack 2 – Arms & Shoulders 


Tips to make your power plate session more enjoyable: 


1. Always keep a micro bend in your knees; this helps to reduce the vibrations that make it up to your head and give you a funny feeling 

2. Place your tongue to the roof of your mouth to help with head vibrations too! 

3. Here is a short {video} showing you how to set up your Powerplate so it vibrates continually for 9 minutes

And then of course, here is the video…

P.S Safety always comes first. If you are new to exercise ensure you seek advice from your GP. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids, wear appropriate clothing and carry out drills in a suitable space. Technique is paramount, and nothing should hurt. Should you experience pain, discomfort, nausea, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath etc, STOP and consult your GP.
