ALL MUSCLES USED IN RIDING HOBBYHORSE (Aug, 1931)

ALL MUSCLES USED IN RIDING HOBBYHORSE
One of the newest of exercising devices is a mechanism that somewhat resembles a hobbyhorse without rockers. Seated in its saddle and operating this odd contrivance, the user can exercise and develop all the principle muscles of his body. A pair of pedals work a crankshaft device which imparts an up and down motion to the saddle similar to that experienced in riding a horse at a trot. Assuming different positions on the machine while working it develops legs, back, stomach, or neck muscles. The machine is designed for the use of invalids as well as for those who wish to reduce with the aid of scientific exercise.

    Eamon… There’s a new Goofy cartoon in the ‘How To’ series.
    “How To Set Up Your Home Theatre”
    The Disney weasels won’t include it in the “National Treasure 2″ DVD.

    Remember, when you use the new full-body exercise machine, remember to tuck in your tie.

    God forbid you not wear a tie at all times!

    Better than pay hundred bucks in a fancy gym.

    Reminds me of a precursor to the ROM – range of motion exercise machine.
