  • Cardio exercise, both lower and upper body, burns calories and increase metabolism. Upper body cardiovascular activity is usually non-weight-bearing and therefore tends to be low-impact. Upper body aerobic exercise will also help tone and define arm muscles. Completing an exercise program can improve the mental health and well-being of those who cannot participate in lower body exercises.

    Prior art for upper body aerobic exercise machines is of several varieties including lever-operated weight machines, cross-country or alternating arm type, kayak, canoe and rowing simulators. Unlike the present invention, nearly all of these machines consist of a large structure that contains both the part of the machine that generates the inertial and lossy retarding forces, and a part on which the user sits. Also unlike the present invention, others involve separate power and return strokes (e.g. Lo U.S. Pat. No. 5,076,573, Jonas U.S. Pat. No. 4,880,224, Kolomayets U.S. Pat. No. 4,714,244, Ware U.S. Pat. No. 4,469,325, Coffey U.S. Pat. No. 4,940,227), the use of levers to cause motion, rather than a cord (e.g. Hickman U.S. Pat. No. 5,803,876, Larsson U.S. Pat. No. 4,687,197, Chininis U.S. Pat. No. 4,717,145, and Rawls U.S. Pat. No. 5,565,002), lifting weights as the primary work mechanism (e.g. Hanagan U.S. Pat. No. 4,336,934, Jones U.S. Pat. No. 5,135,449 and Koenig U.S. Pat. No. 5,957,817) or when cord is used to actuate the work mechanism, the machine is large and self-contained (e.g. Grinblat U.S. Pat. No. 4,709,918, Street U.S. Pat. No. 4,625,962 and Sleamaker U.S. Pat. No. 5,354,251). Deluty U.S. Pat. No. 4,114,875 and Dudley U.S. Pat. No. 4,557,480 describe small exercise machines that are contained within housings and can be mounted on a fixed surface, but unlike the present invention, both involve a single cord with separate power and return strokes and only one form of retarding force. The closest prior art to the present invention is Englehart U.S. Pat. No. 5,624,357, since it uses a cord and paddle shaft that can be manipulated in three-dimensional space. However Englehart's invention is shown with an integral seat and uses only frictional resistance, thereby not providing a realistic simulation of an actual kayak.
