Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9725107A1] 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.
