  • Patent number: 4373717
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a wrist curl machine fabricated to isolate the wrist muscle and lower forearm muscle for development to the exclusion of all others and is defined by three hand grip areas, two sprockets associated with these three hand grip areas and chain elements operatively connected with these sprockets which in turn traverse through weights and a counter balance system whereby the counter balance system negates the weight of the elements associated with the structure and the variable weights themselves provide the total resistance to the work done by the wrist or the forearm of the exerciser. The framework is associated with and supports the hand grip, sprocket, chain, counter balance, and weight mechanism so that the machine can be used when the exerciser is erect.

  • Patent number: 4349191
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is an upper abdominal sidebend machine including a base frame which carries a weight supporting cage thereon, a seating area supported by the base, a roller trackway which revolves about the seat having an upwardly extending transverse track which supports a pair of upwardly extending pads thereon whose displacement from a center area on the roller is adjustable so that an exercisor may loop one arm over the pad and one arm in front of the pad to provide an exercise in which rotation about the seat does work on the upper abdomen. The roller is connected by means of a sprocket to a plurality of weights through chains and sprockets and a cam so that the twisting motion that one undergoes in performing the exercise can be met with weighted resistance to reduce the number of repetitions required in conditioning this area of the body.

  • Patent number: 4349192
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a counterbalance weight system for use with exercising machines in order to negate the weight that is intrinsic to a weight lifting structure, so as to provide a true indication of the amount of work being done. The machine is defined by a framework which supports a plurality of weights the magnitude of which is selectively adjustable, an area to accommodate a user so as to lift the weights, and counterbalance weights operatively connected and opposing the preceeding structure so that the weight of the associated hardware necessary to perform the exercise is effectively cancelled out, and the weights lifted and selectable are solely that which constitutes the work of the exercise.

  • Patent number: 4333644
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a hack-squat machine in which hips, thighs, hamstrings, calves, and lower back muscles are exercised. The device includes a base frame, a weight cage having a plurality of weights supported therein, and a drive system including sprockets, a cam and chain drive attached to a padded back support which is disposed upon a trackway. One's feet are placed upon an inclined platform the angle of which is adjustable and the exercise comprises sliding the back support up and down the trackway. The back support is provided with a sled disposed between the trackway and a back face of the back support that is capable of engaging and dis-engaging so that the back support can be advanced up and down the trackway without the encumbrance of the weights so that an exerciser can not only vary the degree to which the squat exercise will be performed, but also will allow one to disengage the exercise at any time should the need arise.

  • Patent number: 4311305
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a chest and bust machine defined by a base frame from which emanates a plurality of upwardly extending support rods on a pair of which is deployed a vertical back support and a vertically adjustable seat mechanism. Provided in front of the back and seat areas there is a pair of spaced parallel pivot arms pivotted to the base frame at its lowermost extremity and connected at an upward extremity thereof to a plurality of chains which interact with sprockets disposed upon a common axle which, when rotated, rotates a cam disposed therebetween. The cam is connected to a further chain which operates a plurality of weights the magnitude of which is selectable. Work is done by rotating the pivot arms away from the user of the machine so as to provide chest and bust development in such a fashion that the exerciser is constrained from allowing any other muscles to contribute in the exercise, and the work done is on a direct drive basis.
