Abstract
(EN)
A triangular articulated lever system (10) is supported on a vertical support tube (12). The system (10) includes a pair of swing arms (14, 16) that are pivotally mounted on the support tube (12) for supporting a lifting bar (56). A threaded extension (306) of a gas cylinder spring arm (30) is coupled to an articulated mount (53) at an apex of the triangular lever system formed by the swing arms (14, 16) and the spring arm (30). The cylinder (30) is coupled by a clevis arrangement (38) to a lead screw (32) for changing the configuration of the articulated triangular lever system (10) and adjusting the load at the lifting bar (56). A bench is positioned beneath the lifting bar (56) and is pivotally mounted to a base (26) for rotation out from underneath the lifting bar (56) for non-bench exercises. The lifting bar (56) is mounted for limited universal movement at the end of the swing arms (14, 16) and is rotatable about its longitudinal axis. The preferred embodiment has a cylindrical serpentine-shaped tube configuration (100).

Un dispositif à levier articulé triangulaire (10), s'appuyant sur un tube de support vertical (12), comporte une paire de bras oscillants (14, 16) à montage pivotant sur le tube de support (12), ce qui permet de soutenir une barre à mouvement ascendant (56). Un prolongement fileté (306) d'un bras à ressort d'un cylindre à gaz (30) est raccordé à un montage articulé (53) sur une pointe du dispositif à levier articulé triangulaire constitué par les bras oscillants (14, 16) et le bras à ressort (30). Le cylindre est relié par un dispositif à étrier (38) à une tige filetée (32) permettant de modifier la configuration du dispositif à levier articulé triangulaire (10) et d'adapter un poids à la barre à mouvement ascendant (56). Un banc, qui se trouve au-dessous de celle-ci, est monté sur une base (26) de façon à pouvoir s'en écarter en pivotant dans le cas d'exercices ne nécessitant pas de banc. Le montage de la barre à mouvement ascendant (56) lui permet d'exécuter un mouvement universel limité à l'extrémité des bras oscillants (14, 16) et de tourner autour de son axe longitudinal. Le mode de réalisation préféré de cette invention comporte un tube de forme sinueuse cylindrique (100).
