Anyone Use Perfect Push-ups?

Anybody try the Pefect Push Ups that are being sold in the stores? I am thinking about buying the travel ones to help when i am on the road so I w ould be ineterested in any feedback.

Thanks.

I bought them about 3 months ago and have been happy with them. I gives you the ability to do a lower pushup and really isolate the chest muscles without putting pressure on your wrists. I would recommend them. Hope this helps.

I’ve tried them. I felt like I was spending too much time making sure I was twisting the handles properly while going up and down rather than just doing the damn push ups. The commercials make it look like it’s like a natural fluid motion, but overall, it didn’t seem natural to turn the wrists at all.

Nope.

What’s wrong with doing pushups on the floor?

I like using blast straps since they allow me to do more than just pushups.

I just use a set of 20 pound hex db’s.

You’ll get a better workout by doing clapping pushups I think. Those things are hard.

I use it at work from time to time. Its a great way to do a couple of reps at work.

I use some parallettes if I ever want to get more isolation around the chest area it keeps the motion more natural and probably all around cheaper.

They are wrist savers.

For $29.95 I will sale you my “Perfect, Perfect Squat Inventor” Guide.

Too late. Try the Frank Zane leg blaster instead featuring Dustin Hoffma…I mean, Frank Zane.

perfect squat was already made guys, sorry.

We have two in my weightroom, you cna do standing calf raises on them too.

Perfect Squat…wow that looks…interesting. Frank Zane looks sad. Like he wishes he was 35 again.

Nah, I haven’t used it or bought it and don’t plan on it.

Not when there are many variations of pushups available:
Iincline
Wide-grip
Close-grip
Spider-man
Offset
Jackknife

Not to mention:
Band pushups
Blast-strap pushups
Barbell pushups (love these)
Med-ball pushups (close-grip or one arm on ball and one arm on floor)
Plyo-pushups (various ranges of difficulty)
Xvest or other loaded versions
Med ball chest passes or med ball drops (someone drops the ball down to you while you’re on the floor and then you immediately throw it straight up to your partner - or you can just toss them straight up and catch them without a partner.)
