W. H. TITUS EXERCISING, DEVICE Filed March 6, 1926 I INVENTOR fii/laflyflfi/s I v ATTORNEY Patented Nov. 13 1928 PATENT 1 OFF CE;
'wnmnn HARRY runs, or new 01m; n. Y. I
Application filed March 6, 1926. Serial No. 92,928.
The device, the subject of thisinvention is intended as an exercising device and while it may be better adapted for the development of the arms and legs, it may be used as a general exerciser and particularly a. device intended for home use and where it 1s not practical or possible to secure an exercising device in a permanent position.
Another object of the invention is to provide a progressive exerciser, the resistance or strength of which may be increased as the physique of the user is improved, so that the exerciser may constantly ofler a deslrable resistance, which is essential for the complete development of one employing such a device.
The following is what I consider the. best means of carrying out my invention and the accompanying drawing should be referred to for a completeunderstanding of the specification which follows.
In the drawing:
Fig. 1, is aside elevation of my device, the sections disclosing the construction of certain parts.
3 vided with a plurality of eyes or loops as shown at land 5 and with extended ends as.-
indicated at 6 and'7, which are adapted to be passed through suitable perforations in the board and to be clenchedor bent over to secure the wire members firmly engaged with 7 the board. The bent over portion of the wire members are indicated at 8 and 9. y
The wire members2 and 3 may be provided with any number of loops or eyes, for a purpose that shall appear later.
At 10 and 11 I show bales which may also be formed of wire and each bale is provided with a plurality of integrally formed loops or eyes as shown in 12 and 13; Thefree ends Fig. 2, is a plan view of one improved por by the handle 18.
ofeach bale are'bent inward as shown at 14. and 15 and are received into a metallictubular member 16. I
Secured upon each metallic tubular meniber is a hand grip of wood as shown at 17 and 18.
Between the eyes 1 and 12 and 5 and 13 I in the wire members 2 and 3 and bales 10 and 11, I arrange elastic and resilient members and in the drawing I show these members as springs, showing, two s rings to each bale, the springs being there ore, arranged in pairs.
The pair of springs connecting the bale 10. and wire member 4 are indicated at 19 and the pair connecting the bale 11 and wire member 5 are indicated at20. These members shouldbe of a sufiicient length to allow the bales and handles to be carried a suitable distance from 'the board 1. The length of the springs may be varied as desired and as I have provided additional eyes 4, 5, 12 and 13, it will be noted that additional springs maybe added as and when desired. In using this device, the operator may stand, kneel, lie or sit upon the board 1 and operate the handles by moving them away from the board, either by means of the feet. or the hands, the springs offering the desired resistance and retracting the handles when 30 the arms or legs allow such retraction.
The advantages of this device reside in the fact thatthe handles may be moved at any angle from the board. Each handle maybe operated individually and'the range of op- 35 eration is notlimited,the dotted lines A and B suggesting positions that may be assumed It will be understood that modifications may be made within the scope of the appended claims, without departing from the principle or sacrificing the advantages of the invention. 1 Having carefully and fully described my invention, what I claim and desire to'ob- 06 tainis: V
1. An exerciser comprising a floor mem-' her, a plurality of wire members extending therethrough, the ends of said wire members being bent inwardly upon the underside of saidboard, grip members and plurality of spring members between I each said Wire member and its co+0perating grip member.
2. An exercising device comprising a floor member, a plurality of vvlre members eXtend-' ing therethrough and having their ends turned inwardly and clenched to said floor member, each said Wire member being pro-j vided With a plurality of eyes, grip members
