As head of performance for Worcester Warriors I was delighted that we could partner up with Power Plate. I see huge value for the club and specifically for the players using the various equipment to our disposal. One of the main reasons why I was so excited to partner with Power Plate was because I knew the benefits we will get from a high-performance point of view. The modern game of rugby has changed a fair bit over the past 10 years, and it is critical that we get as many gains as possible for our players.
We not only use Power Plate as a performance enhancer but also as a recovery tool as well as pre-gym or pre-field activator. We integrate the big Power Plates prior to our gym session which forms part of our mobility sessions. This gives us a great advantage to fire up some dormant muscle fibres and to pre activate the players before their gym session starts. I see a massive benefit for those players who suffer from tight Achilles’ pain as the vibrations in a sense releases the surrounding muscular and tendon structure which enables them to perform the required lower body lifts.
We use Power Plate’s pulse gun mainly for recovery purposes post gym and or field sessions. They have multipipe heads for athlete preference which is great. The vibrating foam rollers and peanuts add a special touch to soft tissue release for recovery purposes as well. We incorporate this on a daily basis with majority of the players and some of them have even bought their own as they feel they can befit from doing it at their homes as well.
I would certainly recommend Power Plate to any sports team who desires that one percent gain in high-performance.
