Abstract

Rocking push up exercise apparatus comprising hand grips 2 mounted on curved edges 4 the ends of which are bent over 3. There are rails 1,2 set perpendicular to these curves which provide support and keep the two sides connected to each other. They may also be used as handrails for the user.

Description

Description
This invention relates to an exercise device (Figure 1). The device is designed to be used only with a person's hands (Figure 2,3,4) . As the userextends and bends each arm alternately, a rocking motion is created (Figure 3,4). This motion strengthens all areas of the upper body and core muscle groups.
Traditionally astraight punchmotion is practiced using a punch bag or shadow boxing. Hitting a punch bag can cause impact injuries especially for the inexperienced. Shadow boxing doesn't offerenough resistance to build strength and power. And simply doing pressups on the floor doesn't tone all of the arm muscles.
There iscurrently apparatus on the market which allows the user to rock the body front to back AND side to side. These apparatus can be used to sit, stand or use with one's hands on. However the unpredictable-motion of these apparatus means that the can cause undue stress to the wrists, and consequently a lack of confidence in the apparatus when being used. In addition thesedevices often sit much closer to the ground which doesn't allow for the user's arms to be fully extended in the required way to replicate a straight punch being thrown.
The unique curved design of this invention is designed to replicate a straight punch motion(Figure 3,4). But it does so offering stability of movementso that the person using it has complete confidence that their wrists are kept level and that the device won't move in an unpredictable motion. The rocking motion also meahs more muscles are used and toncd than simply doing press-ups alone.
The device is made up of preferably two curved pieces (4 in Figure!) which are kept together by a number of straight struts or tails (1,2 in Figure 1). These rails are set perpendicular to the curves. The rails support the curve and are used as handles for the user (8 in Figure 5) * To use the device (Figure 1) a person would place the unique curved edges of the device on the floor and grab hold of the hand grips on either side (Figure 5, and 2 in Figure 1). They have both antis * straightwhilst keeping their feet on the floor and their body in a traditional press-up position (Figure 2). To start the workout the userbends one ann while keeping the other completely straight. (Figure 3).Transferring theirweight fromthe straightarm to the bent armand rotating theirshoulders means that straight ann bends and thebent arm straightens (Figure 4). This transfer of weight is a good workout for thearm and shoulder muscles. The user then repeats the motion over and over, causing a constant rocking motion (Figure 3,4). The curved edges of the device are essential as thisallows the user's arm to be fully extended (6 in Figure 3 and 4). The precise èurve means that this movement simulates a straight punch being thrown. Because the user is using only their arms and body weight to operatethe device it builds strength, power and muscle in the whole upper body and core. Preferably there would be more than two support rails which means the user has a choice of handles. Differently positioned rails or handles would provide a workout for a different set of arm muscles.
C 2.
The curveallows the device to move from side to side only. It is not designed for forward or backwards molion or to move in an unpredictabk motion. This is to ensure that the usercan confidently use the apparatus without risk that the device will lean in an unexpected way which may cause injury. -Both ends of the curved pieces bend over(3 in Figure 1,2,3,4,5). The ends are designed like this to ensure that the user's hand doesn't get trapped against the floor as the device rocks from side to side, and that there is plenty of space for them to fit their fingers under the hand rail (8 in Figure 5) The simplicity of.this design meansanybodycan use the device regardless of their ability. It also can be used anywhere as it lightweight and compact. The accessory wou'd be cheaj to manufacture, leading to an affordable final product and a mass market appeal. --3.
This invention will now be described solely byway of example and with reference to the accompanying drawings which: -Page 1/5 FIGURE 1 shows the exercise device.
Page 2/5 FIGURE 2 shows a person holding the exercise device in the starting position with both arms straight. Their shoulders are also straight and their head is looking downards. The device itself isevenly balanced in the middle of the curve with both ends at an equal distance from the floor. - * Page 3/5 FIGURE 3 shows the exercise device being used. The person using it has bent one ann, transferring their weight to the sfraight arm. The device has rocked to one side.
* Page 4/5 FIGURE 4 shows the exercise device being used on the opposite side to that shown in figure 3.The person has transferred their weight from one arm to the other. This transfer of weight causes the device to rock to the other side.
Page 4/5 FIGURES shows a close up view of the ends of the curve, specifically how it bends over and thus stops the persons hand touching the floor when using the device. 4.
