Filed Jan. 13, 1969, Ser. No. 790,614 Int. Cl. A63b 21/02, 21/12 US. Cl. 272-82 1 Claim ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE An exercising device for bust development through forced use of the muscles of the back, shouders and chest, consisting of an elastic cord having a sleeve loosely mounted thereon, and having an elbow harness at each end to receive the elbows of the user.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION An exercising device consisting of an elastic cord and a fabric sleeve loosely mounted thereon, each end of the said cord terminating in a harness formed to receive the elbow of the user.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT In the drawings the numeral 1 designates an elastic cord of sufiicient length to span the back of a user when stretched, on which is loosely mounted the sleeve 2, which may be formed of suitable material, such as terry cloth, and which will roll as the device is moved over the body of the user by raising and lowering the arms, the arm action progressively increasing the tension on the cord as the elbows are raised, and the sleeve preventing abrasions or burns from contact with the stretched elastic cord.
The sleeve 2 will extend over the longitudinal area of the cord, and will terminate at the juncture of the harness 3, 4, which may consist of an extension of the cord 1 and the joinder, as by sewing, of the cords 4, 4 to the cord 1, as at 5, 5. The extended ends of the cords 3, 4 are looped, or formed with eyes 6, 6, in which an annular elastic member, as 7, 7 is mounted at the respective ends of the harness cords 3, 4, the member 7 being designed to be of the same general diameter and elasticity as the cord 1, and when mounted on the elbows of a user, will grip the elbows, when the cord 1 is stretched, firmly anchoring the members 7, 7 in position, so that the harness will not become disengaged during the exercise.
The sleeve 2 is formed of a soft material, such as terry cloth, and extends over the cord 1 and a portion of the cords 3, 4, so that it will extend over the area of the back of the user and around the sides of the chest of the user, so that no portion of the cord 1 nor the harness members 3, 4 will contact the body of the user. The material of the sleeve will fold or pleat when the cord 1 is in relaxed position, not being used, and acts as a soft shield when the cord 1 is stretched and in use as an exercising device, protecting the body of the user from contact with any portion of the cords 1, 3 and 4.
In use, the elbows of the user are inserted in the annular members 7, 7, passing the upper arm of the user between the cords 3, 4 and the arms then raised and lowered, causing the sleeve 2 to be moved over the back of the user, with the arms of the user moved outwardly and upwardly, then outwardly and downwardly, to place as much tension on the cord 1 as may be desired. This action requires the use of the muscles across the shouders, back and chest, and tends to develop said muscles and particularly to develop the muscles pertinent to bust of the user.
What I claim is:
1. An exercising device for development of the bust comprising an elastic cord of sufficient length when stretched to span the back of the user, a sleeve loosely mounted on said cord and extending over the length thereof, and an elbow harness mounted on each end of said cord, said harness comprising a pair of cords extending from said elastic cord and each having a loop formed in the extended end thereof, and an annular elastic member extending through said loops.
