  • This application relates to Design patent application Ser. No. 29/014,864, filed Nov. 1, 1993, and entitled VARIABLE RESISTANCE BAND EXERCISE MACHINE, by Michael E. Casey and Timothy G. Krivanek.

    This invention relates to the field of exercise machines. More particularly, the invention relates to a variable resistance band exercise machine which only requires a single, interchangeable, resistance band, supports the user's back, and enables abdominal exercises.

  • It is an object of the present invention to provide a variable resistance band exercise machine that can be used for different exercise to obviate the problems and limitations of the prior art systems.

    Yet another object is to provide an improved variable resistance band exercise machine which is able to use only a single interchangeable band for generating resistance for a number of different exercise components.

  • In accordance with the invention, there is provided a variable resistance band exercise machine for exercising the body of a user including their arms, waists and legs. The user moves various groups of training components against the resistance provided by elastically deformable, resistance bands or belts. The elastically deformable resistance bands are removably secured at various locations, depending upon the specific use and position of the training component. Each band is elastic and preferably made of rubber or an elastomer which produces a resistance as it is stretched by the movement of a particular training component. The increased resistance enables the user to effectively exercise various muscle groups. Although the bands are mounted between stationary holes and spaced adjustment holes, they are the same length for each group of training components.
