Makes pushups easy
I don't find pushups all that difficult, outside of the fact that I just don't know what to do with my hands.
Since my apartment is carpeted, putting my hands into fists results in carpet marks on my ends, and some irritation. As a developer, who works on a computer most of the day, stretching my fingers out causes me some concern as I'm wary of wrist issues.
So I've eyed something like this product, the Perfect Fitness Pushup Stands, for some time. However, reviews tend to be relatively poor for most products, which just doesn't make sense, since how difficult could it be to make such a product?
That resulted in me using some heavy 15# weights as makeshift stands. But being metal barbells, this resulted in my hands feeling soar after just a short amount of time.
When I saw the Perfect Fitness Pushup Stands as a possible item to try, I decided to give them a go. They certainly seemed like they would be workable. Having now used them for a little over two weeks, I'm impressed. In fact, I'm (not surprisingly) able to do many more pushups than I could before, using my rather lackluster alternatives.
The handles are comfortable (the size took a little bit to get used to), and with a wide base they feel very secure on my carpeted floors.
There certainly isn't much to them, but the Perfect Fitness Pushup Stands do exactly what you'd hope, and therefore get a full 5 stars from me. If you've constrained your pushups to the methods I've mentioned above, give these a try, and you might be as impressed as I.
