DKN Xg10 Vibration Plate Review
The DKN Xg10 is the bigger sister to the Xg5 and could almost be twins with the exception of this machine having two separate AC motors, which should guarantee longer life and durability of the machine.|
The vibration frequency can be manually set in 5 Hz increments, starting from 20 Hz right up to 50Hz, which is sufficient for most people. You can also choose the length of time of the workout with 10 min being the maximum. The DKN is preloaded with 5 different training modules for Upper Body, Lower Body, Abdominals, Total Body and Stretching.
From our experience we know that these pre-programmed modules will be very useful to the home exerciser as they offer loads of different exercise ideas with appropriate rest intervals. But what is even better is that all the different exercises will be graphically displayed on your screen for you to copy. One little design error is that you can't view these graphics when you are using the Start/ Stop Control button whilst performing different strength or stretch exercises whilst seated on the platform.
