Abstract (en)

The apparatus has a frame (1) with a bench (3) for the user and a pressure element (7,10), which has to be lifted against a resistance unit (8) with hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder. The pressure element is moveable mainly at right angles to the bench and is height-adjustable. It is fastened to a moveable holder (6,9) on the side of the bench in approximately its center, so that it can be positioned on the hips of a user (E) lying on the bench. Movement of the pressure element in direction of the bench is limited by stops, so that a minimum distance between pressure element and bench is maintained.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung bezieht sich auf ein Gerät zum Trainieren der Körpermuskulatur mit einem Gestell (1), einer ein Kopfende (3a) und ein Fußende (3b) aufweisenden Liegefläche (3) für eine trainierende Person (E) und wenigstens einem oberhalb der Liegefläche (3) vorgesehenen und am Gestell (1) gehaltenen Druckelement (7, 10), das unter Aufwendung einer Druckkraft entgegen der vorgebbaren Widerstandskraft einer mit dem Druckelement (7, 10) gekoppelten Widerstandseinrichtung (8) anhebbar ist, wobei sich das Druckelement (7, 10) quer über die Liegefläche (3) erstreckt und derart angeordnet ist, daß es auf dem Rumpf (E1) einer auf der Liegefläche (3) ruhenden Person (E) positionierbar ist und somit das Druckelement (7, 10) durch Rumpfbewegungen angehoben kann, welches dadurch gekennzeichnet ist, daß das Druckelement (7, 10) im wesentlichen senkrecht zur Liegefläche (3) bewegbar und an wenigstens einem seitlich von der Liegefläche (3) angeordneten und bewegbar geführten Halteelement (6, 9) angebracht und insbesondere höhenverstellbar gehalten ist. <IMAGE>
