Anyone tried this device out? I have been looking at them for sometime now and finally got them today, only $20. I have always had a problem with pushups because my wrists would start to hurt after about 10 or so. But now, I have no problems at all. I can finally start doing more pushups without having to worry about any pain in my wrists, it's worth the $20 for me.
I don't really see the point of doing pushups to work your chest but rather a better workout for the triceps. There are better work outs for the chest. When I do pushups my elbows/hands are in close to my body and hands meet my chest/nipple area in the down position. I think that works the triceps much better than opening up the stance with elbows out wide to try and work the chest. Although with hands and elbow in its quite a bit harder on the wrists.
And getting an ab working doing pushups like this is advertised for...come on. Thats just slighly better than a 12oz curl.
edit- guess they dropped in price from when he bought them.
Skull crushers, as well as leg extensions, are fairly common causes of joint aggravation.
