Article information

It may be concluded that the use of vibratory stimuli with in standard training parameters is not enough to induce physiological adaptations in relation to the variables analyzed.


A similar response in all groups and a direct relationship between vibratory magnitude and physiological response wasn't established. In other hand, significant differences in VO2 and HR were found in the three groups, being the response regarding BP more variable.

Material and methods

Each group performed a vibratory training session with different magnitude: GEA (30Hz and 4mm), GEB (26Hz and 4mm) and GEC (20Hz and 4mm).


The aim of the current study is to determine the cardiovascular and respiratory systems response after different vibratory stimuli. Heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP) and oxygen uptake (VO2) were analyzed during the training. Subjects (22±3,89 yr, height:1,76±0,61m; weight:75,56±8,83kg; IMC: 24,49±2,30 kg/m2) were randomly allocated to one of three groups.
