The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of whole body vibration on the recovery of muscle fatigue after anaerobic exercise.
Twelve healthy adults were conducted to undergo whole body vibration recovery(VibTx), dynamic recovery(DyTx), passive recovery(StaTx) by random assignment after anaerobic exercise using the Wingate cycle tests(WAnT) on one-weeks interval. Blood lactate concentration and the median frequency of electromyography of the subjects were measure immediately before(pre) and after the exercise(post), 10 min(10-post) and 30 min(30-post) after the experiment.
Blood lactate concentration and median frequency were significantly difference in VibTx and DyTx compare to StaTx(p<.05). There was no significant change of blood lactate concentration and median frequency in VibTx and DyTx after WAnT.
In conclusion, we suggest that VibTx and DyTx may be more effective than StaTx in shortening the recovery time of muscle fatigue. Whole body vibration is effective tool in recovery of muscle fatigue after anaerobic exercise.
