They will allow for a greater range of motion versus a regular push-up, while also helping to alleviate stress on the wrists. They provide a deeper stretch to build longer muscles. Three components per stand snap together for easy assembly.
No other exercise, outside of weight training, builds and tones the pectoral and tricep muscles more efficiently than push-ups. Now you can take your push-ups to the next level with this pair of GoFit push-up stands. By gripping the handles of the stands, you'll enjoy a greater range of motion during push-ups, helping your muscles develop even more efficiently. Plus, the stands are extremely compact, so you can store them easily in a closet or stuff them in a suitcase while traveling.

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. But if you're in the 160 - 200 range (after cancer, when I first bought these - see above-, I was 147 lbs and am now 178), these should serve you just fine.
Addendum #2 - 5/3/2009. Four years now, and after lots of use (did multiple sets yesterday evening when I couldn't get to the gym) showing only minor splitting in the foam padding. I'm a steady 180, and they hold me up just fine. I've gotten more than my money's worth from these guys. When the foam finally gives it up, I'll buy another set.
Addendum # 3 - 3/13/2010. Almost 5 years and I'm STILL using them twice a week in the a.m. to get the blood flowing. 3 sets - wide, medium and neutral - feet (toes only) propped on a BOSU, to failure. The foam that was splitting a year ago hasn't gotten any worse. A friend bought me some "Perfect Push-ups" rotating discs see my review of that product Perfect Push-up - Original if you like, which I also use as break from the bars. I like the Perfect P-U's, but these guys remain my "go to" for body-weight chest, anterior delt and tri's strengthening because of the increased range of motion (slight, but noticeable). If you prop your feet up on a chair and do the push-ups, the range of motion is increased - go down slow on a three count and hold for three and you can really feel the s-t-r-e-t-c-h at your sternum between your pecs. Look straight ahead when you're doing this -- not down at the floor.
Addendum # 4 - 11/17/2010 - Gave away my Perfect Push-up discs last month. In the last six months, hardly ever used them. Meanwhile, the Go-fits (the ones I originally purchased) STILL get regular hard use at home, even on "chest days" at the gym, and on the road. Foam splitting on one, but still holding out even after more than 5 years of use.
Addendum # 5. Yeah, they're plastic. They're cheap. So what. They work. Their portable. The foam padding on one of them finally crapped out this month (October 2011) after 6 1/2 years of hard use and many thousands of push-ups. I'd say I'd got my money's worth and then some. Time to buy another set. (See below. Still got 'em.)
Addendum # 6 (11/14/14). After 9 1/2 years -- *9 1/2* I tell you -- I still have the original bars, the foam is gone, and duct tape wraps now serve as the new padding and "grip". The bars are still going strong and still an integral part of my fitness regimen.
The best by far is the Definity - I'd give it 5 stars - This is the one we will standardize on.

Why do we like it and think it's the best
- Very strong - this is very durable
- Does not have any "wiggle" or play at the joints.
- Supports "ballistic" style push-ups where you are pushing off with a lot of force
- Very good "fit and finish
Gofit Plastic Push Bar - 2 stars
Link: GoFit Push-Up Bars
- This is made of plastic
- It bends a bit when you do regular pushups
- Has good fit and finish, but the slight bending in the plastic is a problem
KAZE SPORTS Pair of Push Up Bars - 2 stars
Link: KAZE SPORTS Pair of Push Up Bars
- This is junky knock-off of the Definity
- Looks like it is made of inferior metal
- Fit is NOT good -- When you attach the bars to the handle, there is a little "play" in the joint - it's not stable
- I suspect this will break after we use it for a awhile
The "H" style push-up bars are good ergonomically, but of the 3 we tested, the Definity is clearly the best of the bunch. The others will work, but not as well.

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.
