One of the Push-Up Bars I got rattles as the plastic parts haven't been assembled very securely, nonetheless, it still holds together well and they're too cheap for the hassle of sending back.
However, on to the plus side... the reason I bought these is I have a problem with one of my wrists, which can be quite sore when trying to support my weight in the press up position. But I remember having PE teacher who used to do press ups with one hand in the normal position and the other on his knuckles, he did this to ease the arthritis he had.
So, not fancying doing press ups on knuckles, I figured I'd give these a go to see if they work - and hey presto, they do! Press-ups without pain!
The rotation mechanism is rough but functional and the tops of the hand-holds have a rubberised section to aid grip.
I can't know how long the Push-Up Bars will last, but they do the job they were bought for.
I first saw an item like this in one of those infomercials, they wanted like £30 for em, I checked here and found these for much cheaper so thought I'd give em a shot.
I didn't expect much beside the improvment in joint movement, as that is somthing that annoys me when doing press-ups.
I must say, they offer a great improvement in the overall targetting of muscle groups, you feel the strain more in the arms and shoulders than with regular prush-ups and the rotational movement negates damage to joints.
For the first week or so of using them, I couldn't complete my usual ammount of reps, as muscle groups that wern't being worked as hard before were coming under much more strain when using these.
I'm happy with the product, it does what it's ment to do, and the quality is reflected in the price....cheap and cheerful! but does the job.
Although a little plasticky and lack grease bearings fluidness they certainly work for me. As long as you remember what you paid and not expect top end materials you'll be fine.
I like to use mine in a variety of positions just as you would if you were using one of the more expensive 'push up boards' with various handle placements. The compact size of this equipment also makes it a viable alternative.
How do they fair up when doing weighted push ups? Very well I say, in a stationary positions they've easily took my weight heaviest at the time of 92kg and of 25kg in plates. There is a massive amount of workouts that you can do with these and the internet will provide you with with programs to follow depending on your goals.
Given that I have had my Power Push Ups for so long with regular use I would certainly recommend them to others.
If you can do 20 reps, then what's from stopping you carrying out more advanced press ups? You can:
-Elevate your legs to move your centre of gravity and make it harder on your muscles (then see if you can do 20 reps - if you can, go higher again!)
-Put some weight on your back whilst performing a push up (put something heavy in a backpack). And if you can do 20, add more weight- simples.
The main issue here is how much the equipment can take without breaking. I personally have had my friend who claims to be 18st. (114kg to me) have a go on them, and they still work fine. I am 88kg (13st. 8lb) and have had 20kg (3st.) on my back whilst elevated a bit.
So don't just buy them until you can do 20 reps and then leave them to collect dust. Squeeze every penny's worth of use out of them!
What I noticed most about this bit of kit when I first started using it was how much harder they are than regular press ups. I think this is because they use the muscles differently to what I was used to. It's hard to explain, but I felt that whilst they work the chest, triceps and shoulders like regular press ups - they worked different parts of them.
This must be because of the different range of motion. i.e. the equipment allows you to twist, hence you must use the muscle differently. So they develop areas that were not as strong.
Lastly, some reviewers have been complaining about the equipment not having a smooth motion. I agree with this. Mine are not fluid, but do not jerk.Read more ›
