Abstract

A device for physical culture, and which aids in developing the body muscles by promoting jumping and ducking exercises. The device includes the combination of a platform supported on legs, a mount secured on the platform, and a vertical shaft supported on the mount. Held by the shaft at its lower end is a pair of radially extending arms for being jumped across. Supported by the shaft near its upper end is a pair of radially extending arms for a user to duck his head under. A drive unit rotates both pairs of arms.

[57] ABSTRACT A device for physical culture, and which aids in developing the body muscles by promoting jumping and ducking exercises. The device includes the combination of a platform supported on legs, a mount secured on the platform, and a vertical shaft supported on the mount. Held by the shaft at its lower end is a pair of radially extending arms for being jumped across. Supported by the shaft near its upper end is a pair of radially extending arms for a user to duck his head under. A drive unit rotates both pairs of arms.
3 Claims, 2 Drawing Figures TWO-LEVEL ROTATING-ARM JUMPING AND DUCKING EXERCISE DEVICE This invention relates generally to physical culture exercise devices.
It is generally well known that one of the first things an infant will do as soon as he can pull himself up is to start jumping as a most natural step in its development. Children readily jump at all times as it is a normal emotional outlet. Upon occassion some adults jump unconsciously as a result of great joy or sudden fright. Jumping thus is a basic natural movement of a human body, as it develops and tones the muscles of the body.
Accordingly it is a principle object of the present inventor to provide a device which will build up the musv cles of a persons body.
Another object is to provide a device which due to its physical culture development character is being here termed as a gladiator, and which additionally provides fun for all ages.
Another object is to provide a gladiator device which gives recreational therapy for handicapped persons.
Still another object is to provide a gladiator device which releases tensions in the mentally disturbed patient.
Other objects are to provide a gladiator which is simple in design, inexpensive to manufacture, rugged in construction, easy to use and efficient in operation.
These and other objects will be readily apparent upon a study of the following specification and the accompanying drawing wherein:
FIG. 1 is a top view of the invention FIG. 2 is a side elevation view thereof.
Referring now to the drawing in detail, the reference numeral represents a gladiator device according to the present invention wherein there is a horizontal platform 11 placed upon feet 12; the platform supporting a mount 13 centrally thereupon, and a drive assembly not shown, and which may comprise either a spring wound mechanism or a simple motor.
A vertically upstanding shaft 14 supported upon mount 13 carries a rotatable foot jumper unit 15 at a lower end thereof, and a rotatable head ducker unit 16 at an upper end thereof.
The foot jumper unit includes two radially extending horizontal arms 17, diametrically opposite to each other.
The head ducker unit 16 consists of horizontal, two radial extending arms 18.
Both the foot jumper unit arms 17 and head ducker unit arms 18 are made of flexible rubber or of harmless resilient plastic material. The lengths of the arms 17 and 18 are approximately equal to each other, but could be made of different lengths if preferred. It is to be noted that the arms 17 are disposed in a horizontal direction that is transverse or respective to the horizontal direction of arms 18.
A lock adjustment assembly 19 below the head ducker unit includes a collar 20 adjustably secured by a set screw 21 to the shaft 14; the lock assembly serving to selectively support the head ducker assembly at an elevation that is best suited for the heigth of a person, a release mechanism 22 is located above the head ducker assembly.
Accordingly, in operative use, the drive mechanism rotates the vertical shaft 14 so to turn the arms 17 and 18, whereby a person standing on platform 11 is obliged to jump across the foot jumper unit arms 17 as they rotate by him, and he must also duck his head when the ducker head unit arms 18 pass by; it being noted that the arms 18 are adjusted at an elevation lower than the persons height. Thus alternately the person jumps and then ducks his head.
While various changes may be made in detail construction, it is understood that such changes will be within the spirit and scope of the present invention.
I claim:
l. A jumping and ducking exercise device comprising the combination of a platform supported on legs, a mount secured on said platform, a vertical upstanding shaft supported on said mount, a foot jumper unit supported by said shaft and located around the lower part thereof, said foot jumper unit including a pair of radially extending arms for being jumped across, a head ducker unit supported by said shaft and located around the upper part thereof, said head ducker unit including a pair of radially extending arms that necessitate a person to duck his head therebeneath, and a drive unit which turns said shaft so that saidhead ducker unit arms and said foot jumper unit arms rotate.
2. The combination as set forth in claim 1 wherein said head ducker unit arms and foot jumper unit arms extend horizontally; said head ducker unit arms being in a transverse or 90 direction respective to said foot jumper unit arms.
3. The combination as set forth in claim 2 wherein said head ducker unit is vertically adjustable to accommodate persons of different heights.

Claims (3)

1. A jumping and ducking exercise device comprising the combination of a platform supported on legs, a mount secured on said platform, a vertical upstanding shaft supported on said mount, a foot jumper unit supported by said shaft and located around the lower part thereof, said foot jumper unit including a pair of radially extending arms for being jumped across, a head ducker unit supported by said shaft and located around the upper part thereof, said head ducker unit including a pair of radially extending arms that necessitate a person to duck his head therebeneath, and a drive unit which turns said shaft so that said head ducker unit arms and said foot jumper unit arms rotate.
2. The combination as set forth in claim 1 wherein said head ducker unit arms and foot jumper unit arms extend horizontally; said head ducker unit arms being in a transverse or 90* direction respective to said foot jumper unit arms.
3. The combination as set forth in claim 2 wherein said head ducker unit is vertically adjustable to accommodate persons of different heights.
