    Abstract

    This specification outlines parameters for the proper design and manufacture of externally loaded strength training equipment, strength training benches and external weight storage equipment. It aims to assist designers and manufacturers in reducing the possibility of injury when the products are used in accordance with the operational instructions. The fitness products are intended for use in an indoor setting or environment, and only by an individual age 13 and older.

    The equipment types covered by this specification are: externally loaded strength training equipment, work arm actuated (type 1); externally loaded strength training equipment, linear slide actuated (type 2); strength training benches, designed for use with a barbell (type 3); strength training benches, designed for independent use or for use with optional equipment (type 4); external weight storage equipment, any device with the sole purpose to store external weights (type 5); multi-function systems, a machine whose function incorporates more than one station or operation intended for separate exercises (type 6); rack stations (type 7).
