Product Description


Developed by a US Navy SEAL and as seen on TV, the Original Perfect Pushup uses the latest in biomechanics and engineering to achieve better results from pushup workouts. The units have comfortable rubberized grips, stable 8" bases with a gripping rubber finish, and a steel ball bearing rotational system. Smooth-rotating handles accelerate results by engaging more muscles in the arms, chest, shoulders, and back, while also reducing strain on wrists and elbows and stabilizing the shoulder joint.

The Original Perfect Pushup works for any fitness level, and the included SEAL-inspired exercise chart demonstrates proper form and includes a customizable 21-day workout planner based on SEAL "two minute drills." The kit includes two patent-pending pushup handles, and instructional DVD, and the instructional poster.

About Perfect Fitness
The training principles and innovations behind the Perfect Pushup originated with Alden Mills, a seven year veteran of the US Navy SEALs. While serving as platoon commander, Alden’s platoon was chosen for a study to determine why SEALs suffered unusually high injury rates. After learning the injuries were linked to age-old training methods, SEAL trainers switched to Functional Training. Alden learned firsthand how to incorporate these lessons into exercise routines that have become the foundation of techniques used at Perfect Fitness.

I've been using Perfect Pushup for about two weeks now and I absolutely love it!
Tommy B. Ray
The product is very well made, light but solid, nice rotation and very sturdy while in use.
E. Von Ray
Much harder than regular pushups because you are using more muscles as you turn the wrists.

I lift weights at a gym 3x a week and don't have room for a serious weight setup at home. I have a few dumbbells and medicine balls. I figured push ups would be a way to get the bench press in at home. I ordered Perfect Pushup because doing push ups hurts my wrists and the product looked like a good idea.

First impression - 'hey, it's plastic'! I thought it was going to be metal, based on the pictures. I was disappointed by their lightweight plastic build. Once I started using them, the disappointment turned to appreciation. These transform push ups into serious weight training three ways: 1) Proper wrist angle - means that I can do push ups until muscle fatigue stops me; not sore wrists. 2) Elevated hands means you can go deeper than when your hands are on the floor. This greater range of motion had an unexpectedly large impact. 3) Rotation reduces stresses and brings even more muscles into play. The hand grips rotate freely, forcing you to exert effort to keep your hands oriented. You can feel different muscle groups come into play as you alter your wrist position. The wrist naturally rotates as you move through the push up motion in different ways depending on how far from your body you place your wrists. It takes a moment to learn how to do push ups this way (the included chart is a good starting point) and rewards some experimentation. Once you've gotten used to Perfect Pushup you will not want to do push ups on the floor ever again. Going back to the floor really shows you how conventional push ups strain the wrist by bending back and punish your elbows by forcing them into a single plane of motion when they naturally want to twist.

There are some advantages and disadvantages to this product that buyers need to be aware of before purchasing:

-this is a great in-home piece of equipment to primarily exercise the chest (pecs), front shoulder (anterior deltoids), and back of the arms (triceps)

-once you can do 20 reps in a row with this item, you will not get these muscles any stronger using this piece of equipment. The srength training literature is quite clear (ex. Fleck and Kramer) that anything OVER 20 reps of an exercise will build primarily muscle ENDURANCE and NOT strength. Thus, you can strengthen the above named muscles only to a certain extent- since this exercise equipment is unable to provide progressive resistance (unlike a weight machine or dumbbell where you can keep adding a little more weight now and then which challenges the muscle and makes it grow bigger and stronger). Having said that, it is a great tool to use for moderate strengthening and to maintain a certain level of fitness. Just know it won't turn you into Hercules...

-this is an especially good piece of equipment to use if you have wrist problems since it can rotate and let your wrists do what they do naturally with you do this pressing type motion- unlike other exercise equipment where your hand is fixed on a bar.

-using this piece of equipment is vastly superior to regular floor push-ups as it allows the torso to "sink down" to the floor more which increases the range of motion for you to exercise in. Thus, the muscles are exercised more thoroughly thru a greater range.

When all is said and done: Its a good product for someone looking for a moderate upper body workout and wants to "stay in shape".

...and sometimes overpriced!

What these pushup bars allow you to do is simulate the optimal lifting technique if you were doing a bench press using dumbbells (DBs): at the bottom of the bench press when the DBs are next to your chest, your palms are facing each other in a "hammer curl" type of position and as you push the DBs upward and away from your chest, you rotate the DBs inward (counter clockwise on the right and clockwise on the left) so that at the top of the movement your palms are no longer facing each other but your thumb knuckles are facing each other instead, and you might gently clink the dumbbells together for good measure. By adding a twisting motion to the pushing motion, you will feel a deeper flexion over more of the chest muscles including the insides of your pecs, rather than just the outside of your pecs next to your deltoids. This is the other reason that DB bench presses are essential, though obviously you can lift more poundage using a barbell (the main reason is that you will strengthen both your left and right sides of the body more evenly).

Just as you will find that you won't be able to use quite as much poundage doing a twisting DB bench press rather than a non-twisting linear DB press, so with these twisting pushup bars you will find yourself being able to do fewer repetitions than with normal fixed push-up bars. That is really the main advantage of these "Perfect Pushup" devices: you don't need to crank out as many reps to get to the same level of exhaustion. I normally can do around 30-40 reps per set with normal pushup bars, 50 reps per set with no bars just the ground, and only about 20-25 reps per set with these "perfect pushup" bars. This means you get a faster, more efficient workout.
