Used a power plate for the first time today. How much am I going to hurt tomorrow?

Only joined the gym a week ago so quite unused to exercise. Did 15 minutes on the PP - squats, lunges, planks. Feel a bit stiff but I've heard it really hurts the next day - does it? I'm sleeping in a tent tomorrow night!

Is that the vibrating plate? If so dont make any plans to use your legs, arms and in between grin

Yes! Oh God. DH might be putting up the tent on his own then!

Please stop. Everyone else in the gym will want to kill you. It makes the whole room vibrate and is just generally horrible.

You shouldn't hurt at all.

I use it at the end of my workout to prevent muscle pain and stiffness.

But yes they are bloody annoying when other people are on them grin

Really? They're in a little enclave way away from all the other stuff - it's a big gym. I may well stop anyway if it hurts loads though!

I was on vibrate mode for a while afterwards

Ow.

It doesn't hurt or it shouldn't but it might make you want to pee yourself
