Description

The invention relates to a gymnastic apparatus for cardiovascular training in Aerobic sport with four vertical in the corners of a rectangle Uprights, at which adjustable in height, an elastic around the four posts Band or rope is arranged.

A device of this kind is known from US-A-3 172 660. The known device has two on base plates attached base blocks, in the spaced from each other vertical Posts are plugged. The base plates are at a greater distance arranged on a flat floor and weighted with ballast that of the posts are in the corners of a rectangle. An elastic band or rope is then looped around the posts so that two parallel extensions of the rope or band over which the practitioner can jump. At the vertical Posts are spaced to accommodate the rope at intervals, so that the Rope height adjustable is held to the post.

For dancing movements in aerobic sports, the known device is little suitable because of the jumps of the sportsman on the unsprung ground the joints are unfavorably loaded. The structure of the device is annoying, and despite Complaining to the pedestals with ballast will not shift the pedestal blocks to be avoided.

From US-A-4 492 376 there is further known a gymnastic apparatus which has a flat, rectangular, about 40 cm wide and about 110 cm long box has a thick cushioning layer. On this box the gymnastics player sits down or lays down, to stretch endless, elastic loops with his feet, those of short ones Be held post. With it different muscles of the feet and legs The posts holding the rubber loops are in a plurality of holes can be inserted, which are arranged on a longitudinal side of the box. The leg muscles are made by spreading or joining, by stretching or putting on the feet held in rubber loops with both feet. Further, a carriage is slidably guided in the box in the longitudinal direction, at the front end on horizontal pins elastic loops are hung, in which the feet of the practitioner are hooked. By stretching or tightening the Legs are trained the leg and foot muscles. Exercises with dancing Motion sequences are not possible with this device.

The present invention is based on the object, a joint gentle Gymnastics device to create, in which using rubber bands or rubber ropes as a stress element muscle training and cardiovascular training without Interruptions or breaks are possible, so that the exercises to train the Muscles from both arms and both legs join together as if in dance.

Based on the above-described exercise device according to US-A-3,172,660 this object solved by the posts in the corners of a rectangular, 30 to 50 cm wide and 75 to 150 cm long base plate are arranged, with the base plate designed as a resilient and damping plastic hollow body and its top provided with an anti-slip coating and its contact surface with the ground a non-slip material.

This device has the advantage that both the height and the voltage of the Rubber band can be adjusted so that a combination of muscle training with simultaneous aerobic and choreographic processes without interruption can be performed. Special handles for fixing the rubber band on arms or legs are not required during the exercise sequence.

Advantageously, each post in an open position and in the closed position movable safety rope attached, in the closed position the rubber rope or Rubber band stops at the set altitude. An unintentional jumping off or Slippage of the rubber band can be reliably prevented, causing the Risk of injury during training is reduced.

The plastic base plate is in material and design so designed to cushion the crotch of the user appearing on the baseplate and dampens, so that the musculoskeletal system and especially the leg and ankle joints be spared the trainee.

Further features of the invention will become apparent from the claims.
