    Abstract

    CARDINALE, M., and C. BOSCO. The use of vibration as an exercise intervention. Exerc. Sport Sci. Rev., Vol. 31, No. 1, pp. 3-7, 2003. The use of vibration as a means for enhancing athletic performance is a recent issue in exercise physiology. Current evidence suggests that vibration is effective in enhancing strength and the power capacity of humans, although the mechanisms mediating this effect are unknown.
