Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Many studies have emphasized the importance of resistive exercise in maintaining a healthy human body, particularly in prevention of weakening of physical strength (Kostka, 2002). Recently, some of studies advocated that an application of vibration as a supplementary means in regular training was effective in encouraging physical strength (Annino et al., 2007). Aim of the current study was, therefore, to identify if an application of vibration in a resistive exercise is effective in encouraging physical strength as that in a regular training.
