Perfect Push-up Handles

Does anyone on here really like those perfect pushup handles.I tried them and thought what a waste of money.In my opinion people who buy that gimmick shit are people who dont workout and try them and are like oh these are the best.I think there junk and get so sick of hearing people talk about all this range of motion shit.I agree that to effectively work a muscle group you should work it from all angles but why do we need to buy these twisting handles to do so.

Forgive me im drinking a Spike.

Another thing that pisses me off is people that spend hours or more a week in the gym who have no clue what there doing.I have been lifting since i was 15 im 28 now and I have been reading about lifting just as long so id ont get when i see people doing stupid shit,Why dont people do a little research on there training.If some one buys a car they research same with a house and t.v’s but training and excersise nah lets just wing it.

Constantly i see thes ocer cardio’d wimps doing the same shit on machines or bicep curls in the squat rack.I just dont get maybe im wierd for researching something i devout alot of my time to.

you tell me.

They’re certainly superior to regular push up bars.

And keep in mind the product is geared towards the average Joe, and not someone who is already in the gym 5 times/week.

What does this have to do with bodybuilding?

anyways, i agree, the perfect pushup and pullup are both for avg joes that wont spend the time to go to a gym. Personally, I wouldnt spend that kind of money on something that i could already do without the equipment. The flat ground and a well positioned bar do just fine.

i’m going to create the perfect squat (it’ll be in the shape of a chair that you sit down and get up from)

I know a few people who refuse to go to the gym and have the pullup bar and pushups and workout regularly with them.

This is no way optimal and never anything I would do but if they’re not going to go to the gym, it’s better than nothing.

well im going to create the perfect crunch combined with the perfect glute kickback!! thatll sell for sure!

If you feel the need to clutch something while doing push-ups, a set of 10 lb hex head dumbbells works great.

You guys, it was made bye a Navy seal, that means it has to work.

My friend has some. They are really good on your shoulders. Other then that they are no better then doing normal pushups.

I agree,I just wish people would do alittle research and dilligence and figure what really works and stick with it.

Get the fuck out of here,As far as im concerned the marines invented the push up with hands on dirt and they still do it that way.So its good enough for me.

I had purchased one of these when they first came out. Normally I don’t buy gimmicks, but they were only $20, instead of $50 like it is now and since it seemed something different, I decided to give them a chance. They are ok, just another variation of doing pushups.

I’d never recommend them to anyone to buy, but if it is something that does get a couch potato started, then that would be the only way I could see it as not a waste of money.

I ended up giving the perfect pushup to my brother, and he didn’t workout, and he started using them and it led to lifting weights and other more productive ways of exercising. He mainly sticks to the basic lifts and some machines.

And he mainly sticks to the traditional types of bodyweight exercises, such as pull ups, regular pushups, dips and whether he still uses the perfect pushup, I’m not sure, but haven’t seen him grinding out reps on it for a while now. So, really, it wasn’t a wasted investment cause it did help someone get on a better path.

Your spicy.

I didn’t think the product was a gimmick at all. The pushups became harder and it put less stress on my wrists.

No worries, Bonez is just grumpy again.
