Effects of Vibration Training on Force Production in Female Basketball Players

Javier Fernandez-Rio, Nicolas Terrados, Benjamin Fernandez-Garcia and Oscar E. Suman

Purpose: To investigate the long-term effects of whole-body vibration (WBV) training on force production.

Conclusions: WBV training has no additive or discernible effects on the strength development of female basketball players after several weeks of use, suggesting that the application of this technology has no advantages over traditional strength training methods.

IN PLAIN ENGLISH: You do not have to invest in one of those expensive WBV devices to increase strength and thus improve basketball playing ability. Use time-proven traditional strength training methods to increase strength.
