Bear Blocks for Push-Ups

I love seeing people doing push-ups using the handles of round dumbbells. It tells me that I should avoid that person… just in case stupidity is an airborne contagion. I’m kidding. Mostly.

Doing push-ups with your palms flat on the floor CAN be uncomfortable, especially for beat-up lifters who’ve lost some wrist mobility. But ditch the wobbly dumbbells and try these blocks instead (recommended to us by coach Lee Boyce). Unlike standard push-up handles, Bear Blocks have a wide, flat hand surface that’s angled just right for maximum comfort. No more wrist strain or impingement.
