Push-up bars bars like these are a necessary part of any home fitness equipment to give you greater range of motion (and therefore forcing you to recruit more muscles in your arms, chest and back) than ordinary push-ups. I bought my set in the spring of 2005 when I was rehabbing my body after cancer, chemo and radiation had kicked the crap out of me and I had lost over thirty pounds. With these guys and variations of grip (wide (- -), neutral ( I I ), angled semi-narrow (/ \)) (the little slashes in parens are the positions of the bars for your grip in relation to your body - that's the best I can do), I had significantly increased my upper body strength and mass over all in a couple of months and was ready to hit the gym again.
The only drawback is that the foam padding is a tad skimpy which can get to be hard on the heels of your palms and wrists if you're doing multiple sets with high reps in a neutral position. I give these bars 5 stars for the price, the function they serve, and because they've held up nicely with fairly regular use over two years.
Addendum - 052408: It's been over three years now and they're still a staple of my home workout routine 2x a week. I do multiple reps to failure each set, so they get fairly rigorous use. Foam padding is holding up and no signs of wear and tear. I will say that if you're over 210 you might want to consider something heavier.Read more ›
I thought the bars were excellent until one of them broke around the plastic jonction area, while I was doing some push-ups. I am not a big guy at all: 6'1 feet, 179 lbs.
Don't buy them. I noticed that the second bar was also about to break. I do recommend metal ones.
This product is made of a cheap hard plastic and the assembly socket for one of the bars actually cracked when it was assembled.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. Shell out about five bucks more for all metal push-up bars.
Only minor defect is that they flex slightly (maybe 1/8") under my 5'11" 186 lb frame, only noticeable initially after putting my weight on them. That said, they remain solid and stable throughout the workout.
They are very light, and can be taken apart and packed easily.
Note: I'm using these in my dorm room, which has a smooth floor similar to what you'd find in most Walmarts/grocery stores etc. Using them on a carpet or other surface with more traction may very well eliminate the flexing issue.
They squeak a little, but a dab of oil took care of it. I'm 5 10, 205lb and they are great in targeting the pectorals with a wide arm positioning with the handles perpendicular to your body and the triceps when bringing them close to the body and the bars parallel to the body.
They are not high enough for dips.
For the price a good buy.
