CLAIMS

1. An arrangement for adjusting load in training equipment (1) comprising at least one moving arm (10) pivotably connected to a frame (11), the arrangement comprising at least one load unit (2), an elongated guideway (3) extending to both sides (61, 62) of a fulcrum (6) and along which the load unit (2) is arranged to move, a locking device (5) with which the load unit (2) is secured into a position corresponding the desired load of the training equipment (1), and a connector (4) with which the guideway (3) is pivotally connected to the training equipment (1) via the fulcrum (6), the guideway (3) being connected both to the moving arm (10) and to a frame (11) of the training equipment (1) via the fulcrum (6), characterized in that the load unit (2) is movable along the guideway (3) to a locking position (35a-e) on either side (61, 62) of the fulcrum (6) .

2. The arrangement according to claim 1, characterized in that the load unit (2) comprises a monolithic weight (21), at least one actuator (22) with which the load unit is moved along the guideway (3) , and a cover (23) .

3. The arrangement according claim 1 or 2, characterized in that the locking device (5) is arranged directly onto the load unit (2) .

4. An arrangement according to any of the claims 1 - 3, characterized in that the locking device (5) comprises a gripping part (51) for manually moving the load unit along the guideway (3) , an arm (52) arranged to extend inside the load unit (2) through the cover (23), an attaching element (53) with which the arm (52) is attached pivotably to the cover (23) , and an end part (54) at the end of the arm (52), the end part (54) attachable into a counterpart (35a-c) arranged on the guideway (3) .

5. An arrangement according to claim 4, characterized in that the end part (54) and the counterpart (35a-e) form a form-lock when the load unit (2) is secured into a position.

6. An arrangement according to claim 4 or 5, characterized in that the counterparts (35a-e) are a series of pre-determined locking positions (35a-e) corresponding to the desired load of the training equipment unit.

7. An arrangement according any of the claims 4 - 6, characterized in that the locking device (5) is spring-loaded so that the end part (54) is automatically secured into one counterpart (35a-e) in case the locking device (5) is unintentionally set into a position between two adjacent counterparts (35a-e) .

8. A method for adjusting load in training equipment (1) comprising at least one moving arm (10) pivotably connected to a frame (11), at least one load unit (2), an elongated guideway (3) extending to both sides (61, 62) of the fulcrum (6) through which the guideway (3) and the moving arm (10) are connected to the frame (11) and along which the load unit (2) is arranged to move, a locking device (5) with which the load unit (2) is secured into a position corresponding the desired load of the training equipment (1), and a connector (4) with which the guideway (3) is connected pivotally to the training equipment (1) via a fulcrum (6), characterized in the load unit (2) is moved on the guideway (3) to a locking position (35a-e) on either side (61, 62) of the fulcrum (6) .

9. The method according to claim 8, characterized in that the load unit (2) is secured to a pre-determined locking position (35 a-e) arranged onto the guideway (3) to adjust the load in stepwise manner within the pre-determined locking positions (35a-e) .
