I'd like to see how they help you. I think my blast strap pushups have helped me. I'm just wary of them for cost reasons - they're pretty expensive for something that's only going to help with one exercise. A set of rings, a pair of med balls or pushup handles - they can get used for other things b...

I don't understand this at all. What the hell are you people doing with those bars to make plates slide off?! Do you grease the ends and then lift one side at a time? I might have a plate move as much as an inch. Then I just push back after the set. I can see the need maybe if you are doing really ...

We aren't saying it won't help you do more pushups. We are just saying it won't help with anything else. It's probably easier on the wrists if nothing else. I disagree that it wont carryover, but i wont know for sure how this translates to other exercises like bench or military until i go back to d...

I couldnt wait till later...lol. Start of program - 17 reps End of 3 week program -28 reps Im sure a slight bump can be attributed to it just being a new piece of equimpment...but id say an 11 rep jump in 21 days is pretty damn good. I was even more controlled this time around on the descent than i ...

Agreed. If youre lifting alone and going heavy the stupid person is the one with collars on! Even when I lift alone, I always keep collars on. I figure there is much more inherent risk in having a plate slide - and then needing to adjust to the weight imbalance - on a limit lift than there is from ...

Well today is my final day of the 21 day program where you go for max reps. While no result is going to convince any of you guys as to the quality of the equipment, hopefully i'll at least be able to give people some insight if the routine it comes with works. My first day max was 17...will be testi...

Stupidity...the human condition. Same reason people dont wear seat belts, it will never happen to them because they're perfect! (Not). Seriously, how long does it take to slide a collar on? a second? Excuse me? So not using collars on a bar equates to stupidity, I must be one of those morons then. ...

I'm all for push ups for shoulder health - it's why I always bang on about them when the opportunity comes up. They're completely underrated in my opinion. Push ups were a big part of my own shoulder rehab. Infact, I started on push up holds, holding it from the top position, because the shoulder c...

How do they compare to pushups off rings or blast straps?[/quote="pdellorto"] Ive never tried either so i couldnt give an opinion. Im sure its very possible those work even better, but then again thats not something i'd have in my house. For someone who works out at home, the PP is great. Okay, tha...

I saw something new at Walmart yesterday. It's called the Perfect Pushup Counter, and it's meant to be used with the Perfect Pushup. Seems pretty pointless to me, but I'm sure someone will buy it. I wouldnt buy that myself, but i could see the use in it. Theres a greater range of motion to the PP t...

ive tried it, didn't like it. I'll stick with my pushup handles and spend my cash on something more worthwhile. Now what kind of effort did you actually put in? Honestly? I'd bet everything you saw a pair somewhere, said aloud "let me see these stupid things"...did a few reps, and said they suck. T...

It's a lot like the perfect barrel-fish shooter, The perfect candy stealer, works on any infant. The log klutz, a perfect fall every time. Perfect pie is good. or the perfect cakewalk. Perfectly silly I think. Even if pushups are challenging for you, I don't see why you need this. Now the perfect p...

I know this is over a year old but i wanted to chime in on how great this product actually is. How do they compare to pushups off rings or blast straps?

I know this is over a year old but i wanted to chime in on how great this product actually is. Anyone who's had shoulder issues pick this up immediately...like right now, leave your house and get in the car. The real brainwashed people are the ones who dismiss the product as bull simply because its ...
