    My mum has thought about buying them. I am planning to do squatting with weights with them, apparently it makes exercise better. - Has anyone used them, does it work? I've either heard it's fantastic (verified purchasers) and apparently celebs like Nicole scherzinger use them, but I also heard it's a lot of crap.I also have a treadmill so I'll use that too.

    I bought one about 2 years ago, and they're really good, especially if you're to busy to get to the gym

    I suppose it depends on the persons size as well to be honest, my mum is plus sized and managed to loose a dress size within less than a month of standing of the plate for a couple of minutes a day, where as I've never been larger than a size 10 so it wasn't as effective (just gave me a quick fix before holiday)

    I work at a gym and from what i have actually seen and experienced i would say that they make any movement harder as you can feel the vibrations in muscle. I personally use power plates for abs.

    Ummm, I would recommend using one however i don't know if domestic ones would be effective as the ones i use are 7.5k each. See if there's a cooling off period or something so you can try it and then return it if it's not very good

    hmm I am getting one from Argos which got a rating of 4.9/5, (46 reviewers) so it seems like it should work

    I understand. If i was in your shoes i wouldn't get the power plate. Instead i'd do high intensity circuits involving sprints, skipping, pushups, pullups/rows, clapping lunges and burpees.

    But then everyone likes to train differently
