When I first bought them, I planned on doing 10-15 pus ups on days I couldn't get to the gym. After a week or two of doing push ups using these bars, I've been doing several sets of 15 reps every morning and every night before going to bed.
Not only do I do push ups every morning and every night, but I can do more push ups now than I could when I started.
The bars are plastic but they seem durable. If they broke now, I think I'd still get my money's worth because of the number of push ups I've done using these bars. Low price, durable, help with fitness, what's not to like about these bars?
What about comfort? The foam grips are surprisingly comfortable and durable for this price range, reminding me of the type on a pull-up bar, and the angle is well suited to natural movement.
Weight is another issue. I can use my hexagonal hand weights for push-ups, but they are too heavy to move around quickly when I want to change positions, including the small adjustments when my body slips around. These plastic hand weights are perfect in that regard, weighing almost nothing.
Okay, what else is left? Something that I had not even considered prior to purchasing: stability. To be portable (and they very much are), each bar comes in three pieces, which snap together, allowing them to all lie flat for packing. This leaves little hinge points, which can rock a bit and feels awkward.
Absence of check.
The simple fact is that a push-up bar is extremely cheap to make and not complicated in design. With that said, I have decided to give these an average (3-star) rating, but I do not want to discourage you from purchasing this pair. While I would gladly give up the small amount of portability gained by breaking these bars into pieces for stability, your priorities may lie elsewhere, making this is an ideal compromise. Regardless, this is a solid product for a reasonable price and I do not regret buying it.
Update #1: April 10th, 2013
I have completed my first run through P90X and these did a fantastic job! They were easy to hide in a closet when I was not working out and performed great during the push-up sessions.
It has been about 3 months since i purchased this item and it still looks brand new. I was worried about the foam on the handle falling apart but it still look fantastic! I highly recommend this product!
Why did i buy this product?/What was i looking for?:
I wanted some push-up bars because the i am starting the P90X program and they recommended purchasing push-up bars. The ones on the beach body website were something like $30 which is way more than i wanted to spend.
Upon my first purchase, i opened up the box and the push up bars were OBVIOUSLY used before! I contacted amazon and they willingly sent me out a new set overnight for free which was AWESOME! Opening my second set, they were new so i was happy. I set them up by snapping the bars into the base. The first thing that i noticed is that the build quality did not seem like it was anything special. I was skeptical if they would actually hold my weight (190 lbs) but after a few months, they're still holding up and work fine.

Overall these a a great purchase for only a couple bucks and work great for anyone who is doing P90X.
If you are an average-sized person as I am (more or less ... a little more than less, maybe?) or better, you will be sensitive to the "plasticness" of the product.
I have metal push-up bars for regular use.
This product is in my suit bag -- the two bars can be disassembled and fit flat in a gallon Ziploc bag. Perfect for a traveler who likes to work out conveniently on the road.
