After the ATR, it’s been a bit difficult finding the right exercises to stay in shape. I don’t have a gym membership anymore, and I have no other exercise equipment at home. My primary exercise of choice used to be basketball and jogging. Well, I can’t do those things any more, so I’ve been doing primarily push-ups to stay in shape. It gets my heart rate up, and it’s simple.
The problem used to be that my wrists would get really sore from doing push-ups. I used to wear old rollerblading wrist guards to do push-ups.
I saw a TV commercial about the Perfect Push-up, and it looked promising. While I was out shopping a week ago, I happened to see a version of it. So I bought it and decided to give it a try. I bought this:
It’s been working great, and it cost only $19 so I’ve pretty happy with the purchase. It feels slightly flimsy though. I’ve read that Perfect Pushup - Original is better constructed, and it swivels smoother. So maybe the extra $20 would have been worth it. Here is what it looks like:
Perfect Pushup - Original
Update: I happened to walk past a shop that was selling Perfect Pushup - Original, and I actually went inside to take a closer look. It is better constructed and swivels better. The handle is designed differently than Zatorski’s Push Up Pro and seems a bit sturdier. It limits the way you hold onto the handle, so maybe it makes you have a more proper form. I think it’s overall a better product, but I am not sure if it’s worth twice as much.
If I had to buy one again, and I felt like spending $20 more at the time.. I’d probably buy the Perfect Pushup instead.
Update #2:My friend has the Perfect Pushup, and I gave it a try. In my opinion, it’s a better product. The handle is much more comfortable and is made of softer rubberish material, and it feels more sturdy.
