Title
(DE) TRAININGSVORRICHTUNG FÜR ANSTOSSARTIGE BEWEGUNGEN
(EN) KICKING TYPE TRAINING APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL D'EXERCICE POUR MOUVEMENT DE TALONNEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A kicking type training apparatus for use in increasing the isometric muscle strength of the abdominal muscles and back muscles by backward kicking of lower limbs. This apparatus is provided with a body (1), a saddle (3) fixed to the body (1), and a load generator adapted to apply a load on both lower limbs of the user when these limbs act thereon. The load generator includes a pair of tread rods (30) adapted to receive both feet of the user and be moved back by the alternate backward kickings of both lower limbs of the user, and an air cylinder (2a) adapted to impart a load with respect to the backward movements of the foot rods (30), and automatically return forward these stepping means (30) when the foot rods (30) are released from the stepping force. The user sits on the saddle (3), holds grips (5d) by hand, and applies the abdomen and elbows to an abdomen support pad (18) and elbow support pads (19), respectively. The user, in this condition, kicks the foot rods (30) by the left and right lower limbs alternately. The air cylinder (2a) generates a load with respect to the stepping motions of the lower limbs. This effectively increases the isometric muscle strength of the back muscles and abdominal muscles.

(FR)
Appareil d'exercice pour mouvement de talonnement destiné à accroître la force isométrique musculaire des muscles abdominaux et des muscles postérieurs par un mouvement de talonnement vers l'arrière des membres inférieurs. Cet appareil comprend un socle (1), un siège (3) monté sur ce socle (1) et un générateur de charge conçu pour appliquer une charge contre l'un et l'autre des membres inférieurs de l'utilisateur lorsque ces membres agissent sur ce générateur. Le générateur de charge comprend deux marche-pieds (30) conçus pour recevoir les pieds de l'utilisateur et pour se déplacer vers l'arrière sous l'effet d'un mouvement de talonnement alternatif de l'un et l'autre membre inférieur; un cylindre à air comprimé (2a) conçu pour impartir une charge par rapport aux mouvements de talonnement des marche-pieds (30); un dispositif de retour automatique du marche-pieds (30) vers l'avant lorsque celui-ci cesse d'être soumis à la force de talonnement. L'utilisateur s'assied sur le siège (3), saisit les poignées (5d) de ses mains et plaque l'abdomen et les coudes sur des coussinets de support (18 et 19) conçus à cet effet. Dans cette position, il applique un mouvement de talonnement au marche-pieds (30) alternativement de la jambe gauche et de la jambe droite. Le cylindre à air comprimé (2a) produit une charge par rapport au mouvement de talonnement des jambes. Cet exercice accroît de manière efficace la force isométrique musculaire des muscles postérieurs et des muscles abdominaux.
