Did he get that way from the bullworker?

I don't have time to look it up right now, but I don't think he actually "invented" the Bullworker or "tensolator" as he called it, the patent was already out there, and he added the cables for pulls as well as pushes...The rest is history.
"It wasn't until the 1970s when Gert F Kolbel, (or Gert koelbel, it seems there are two different spellings of his last name) a German inventor, expanded on an existing patent for an exercise device. That patent created by Arthur A Pons, was approved in April 16, 1912. It was a simple 2-tube compression device with handles at each end.
Mr. Kolbel improved on the device by adding a steel cable; enveloped by a plastic sheath- that circled both handles. This allowed the user to compress the device but to also by pulling on the cables- perform pulling movements.
To my knowledge, this was the first commercially marketed isometric exercise equipment.
At first, it was sold under the name Tensolator..."- from a Bully Xtreme ad. The "1970s " has got to be a mistake. It was the early '60's.
