Galileo Research Fact Sheet #151: Can Galileo Training make squats more efficient and more effective?


This study documented the short-term effect of Galileo Training on muscle activation and exhaustion. Slow dynamic squats with and without Galileo Mechanostimulation (26Hz, position 6) using 40% body weight as extra load (in both cases) until individual exhaustion (Borg-scale >18). The study investigated muscel activation (EMG), stretch reflex amplitudes as well as blood parameters like lactate concentration. The results showed higher training effects like exhaustion (lactate increase 205% instead of 160%), EMG frequency (+15% instead of -19%) and stretch reflex torque (+43% instead of -49%) in significantly shorter time (349s instead of 515s). The results demonstrate that the combination of traditional exercises with Galileo can make them much more efficient and effective at the same time.
