Title: EXERCISE MACHINE WITH ADJUSTABLE STRIDE
Abstract:
A stationary exercise machine may include a frame, a crankshaft rotatably supported by the frame, first and second lower linkages, and first and second crank arms connected to opposite sides of the crankshaft such that rotation of either of the first or second crank arm causes rotation of the crankshaft. Each of the first and second lower linkages may be operatively connected to the crankshaft and a respective pedal. Each of the first and second lower linkages may include a reciprocating member operatively connecting a respective pedal with a respective crank arm. Each of the first and second lower linkages may include an adjustable linkage connected between the reciprocating member and the respective crank arm to vary a distance between an output end of the reciprocating member and an input end of the crank arm. Each of the pedals may be pivotally connected to the respective reciprocating members.
