As you’re likely well aware by now, I’ve been cross training like a beast for the last couple weeks. No sooner did I receive the opportunity to try out some push up bars from Go Sport-it did the need to cross-train show up in earnest. Perfect timing. I’m not sure who was more excited about the prospect of the push up bars — my husband or me — but he’s the one that tore into the package first so there’s that. Either way, we’re both enjoying them. The first thing we both noticed was how easy it was to assemble the bars. The added featherlight weight makes them easy to transport, too. A win if one plans on working out on vacations and getaways!
Here’s what I thought was going to happen with the push up bars: I thought push ups would be easier and that I would enjoy them more because I would feel more buff or something equally as awesome as that.
My friend’s husband is a Marine and he’s always telling us about “breaking the plane,” so of course that’s what I’m always striving to do. It’s never happened for me before, but I feel like I’m now that much closer.What does my husband think about the Go Sport-it Push Up Bars? He likes how there’s less stress on his wrists and elbows with the bars. His lateral epicondylitis makes standard push ups very painful so the bars make it easier for him to focus on core muscles and break the plane. He also likes the ability to turn them sideways to work his shoulders. A direct quote, “they will always be in my workout routine.”
|This guy can break the plane.|
|Great for kids, too! Haha just kidding. Don’t let your kids use these without supervision.|
Choose one: burpees or push ups?
