The good thing about these Weider push-up stands is the angled bar, which feels better doing regular push-ups than a straight bar. This is also very helpful if you are doing easy push-ups on your knees.

Unfortunately, they are only fair quality, and don't seem very durable. While the bars are steel tubing, the bases are actually just hollow black and gray plastic shells. If you weigh over two hundred pounds, I think the bases might crack after a while, especially where the ends of the steel tubes press into the plastic. The bases are also smooth on the bottom with no gripping surface, so the hard plastic surface will slide on a smooth floor. They are O.K. on carpeting or a gym mat.

The foam pads on the steel tubes are not dense, so they don't give much cushioning for your hands. It helps to use padded weightlifting gloves.

The problem is that the stands I got didn't fit together properly because of design and quality control problems.

The stands had deep grinding marks inside the holes in two of the bases, where the manufacturer apparently tried to correct moulding problems in the plastic. I initially thought that the stands had been used, but the replacement set I received was just like the first.

To assemble the stands, you need to push the ends of the steel bars into the plastic bases and secure them with threaded T-screws that thread into the bars. However none of the holes lined up properly on mine, so the shoulders of the T-screws wouldn't fit into the holes in the bases. I was eventually able to get the second set of stands put together by filing down the ends of the bars slightly. You also need to use some grease on the bars to get them to slide in or they shear off the plastic gripping ribs moulded inside the holes.

All this may have just have been quality control problems in one lot, so you can take a chance if the price is low and you just want some light duty stands.

I own many different sets of push up bars. This will lead to the question: Why did you buy Weider's version? The answer is I was vacationing in a foreign country, wanted bars and they were the only option. I paid $20 but I cannot recommend these strikingly poorly made bars unless you can get them for under $5 and don't expect them to last.

The quality of the various parts could not be lower. The cheap plastic feet aren't even colour matched from one bar to the other. The metal frame is thin and poor and the padding is barely functional (it compresses instantly under the lightest weight and isn't likely to last long before tearing).

Any other option is preferable. It's obvious Weider (these are also sold under the Gold's Gym name) makes the poorest quality garbage. It is my sincere hope the parent company goes bankrupt so retailers must stock better options. 0 stars if possible.

Verified Purchase
I was worried I was taking a chance based on a previous reviewer's comments, but now that I've been using them for over a month, I see no problem with them.

Installation required a little force, but afterwards the stands are tight with no wiggle.

The angle is minimal but is helpful in reducing strain on my wrists. It is difficult to quickly notice which way the angle slants, however one end of the bases are wider which helps determine each stands direction (you want them to slant down away from you for normal push ups).

I normally use them on carpet, but I notice no grip on the bottom for hardfloors. Testing them on vinyl flooring reveals that they slide around easily until you are on top of them, then they felt secure and didn't move with my weight on them.

Overall I am happy with my cheap slanted push up stands!
