Jacobs Ladder ::
Jacobs Ladder is a patented climbing machine with ladder-type rungs on a non-motorized continuous treadmill. The device was originally developed as an alternative to running, to take the stress off the back and to work the upper body. The result, Jacobs Ladder, is a unique way to provide a high-intensity cardiovascular workout. The Jacobs Ladder total body exerciser features ladder-type rungs on a 40 degree angled nonmotorized continuous treadmill.
To use the machine, exercisers simply snap on the control belt and begin climbing. The higher the exerciser reaches, the faster the ladder moves, and the more intense the workout becomes. To work at a more comfortable pace, the climber simply slows down. A braking device ensures that the Ladder stops when the exerciser reaches the lower rungs or stops climbing altogether.
The machine also offers digital feedback on how many feet were climbed, rate of speed, what level of effort was put out, and how many calories were used in the process. But for all its simplicity, Jacobs Ladder offers its users some serious benefits. Study after study confirms that exercise using both the arms and legs require more energy expenditure, and threrefore burn more calories, than exercises using just the arms or the legs. So, unlike stair-climbers, stationary bikes, and other standard club equipment, Jacobs Ladder can offer exercisers a superb cardiovascular workout in a relatively short amount of time.
