If you cut through all the BS the product itself seems fairly decent.

Question is: has anyone used it?

Does it always have to rotate?

Looks ok though. Would like a demo of it tbh.

There's no lockout option so you'd have to keep wrists still through the movement.

mmm I wonder if that is ok though. If you purposefully attempt to keep wrists "locked" and hands in the same position you'd end up using forearm stabilisers that may add extra benefit to the exercise ??

I've bought a set and i rate them.
They are very stable on any surface due to their rubberised base,they rotate with no lock,as said,so choice of hand positions and excellent for the stabilisers/RC.

Make for a decent chest workout in those "just can't get to the gym" scenarios or as an alternative to the norm!

Have seen this before and it certainly looks good... if it does what it's supposed to then it would certainly work the muscles through a better range of motion than standard push-ups.

Reserve judgement until i try though!

I am still thinking of getting them - but I was thinking yday that maybe to raised square or rectangular blocks would do as well as long as you can go slightly below and get a stretch?

You see that on a T-Nation article right ;)

I was thinking the same thing. But some of my clients have dodgy wrists, so press-up bars are great for them. Shame there's no Netto in NI
