Abstract
(EN)
A quad/hamstring muscle exercise (10) is disclosed. The apparatus includes a base structure (12) having a central support member (14) secured to a vertically oriented resistance assembly (22) with a resistance member (28). The apparatus further includes a cable (24) linking the resistance member to a user interface (49) coupled to an end (54, 58) of the cable. A first pulley (64) is pivotally mounted adjacent a lower end (82) of the resistance assembly (22). The cable passes over the first pulley to direct the cable toward the lower body of an individual using the exercise apparatus. The first pulley also includes a cylindrical member (78) through which the cable passes such that the cable extends substantially along an axis about which the first pulley pivots.

L'invention concerne un appareil d'exercice physique. L'appareil comporte une structure de base comprenant un élément support central fixé à un ensemble résistance orienté verticalement doté d'un élément de résistance. L'appareil comporte également un câble reliant l'élément de résistance à une interface utilisateur couplée à une extrémité du câble. Une première poulie est montée pivotante à côté de l'extrémité inférieure de l'ensemble résistance. Le câble s'étend au-dessus de la première poulie de façon à diriger ledit câble en direction de la partie inférieure du corps d'un individu utilisant l'appareil. La première poulie comporte également un élément cylindrique par lequel traverse le câble de façon à s'étendre sensiblement le long d'un axe autour duquel pivote la première poulie.
