    I've seen the product but haven't tried it out yet. I'm sure that it'll be a hell of a push-up, but I doubt it will give you all of the results that it's touting.

    I have one and I think it's pretty good. There's a push up program you do that comes along with it.

    From the "Science" web site:

    Psych out. Just as some guys brag about how much weight they bench press, male Australian jacky dragons (Amphibolurus muricatus) try to intimidate their rivals by doing pushups. To determine just how bad is bad, researchers videotaped dragon pushups and played them back to other lizards while altering the speed of bouts and number of pushups in each. The viewers behaved most submissively when shown a lizard doing rapid-fire sets of many pushups, versus those that took more time for the same workout, the team reports online 17 August in the Journal of Experimental Biology. If the lizards are sufficiently daunted by the display, they may think twice about engaging in a costly battle with an opponent. (Photo: Daniel Garnett)

    I have the perfect pushup and really like it...anything to vary the workout is a big help for me...and it makes a simple pushup much harder when performed correctly.

    I also have a set of them and I find them very useful. Great for switching things up and keeping workouts interesting.

    I was kind of surprised too when I managed to pound out 50 pushups with my feet up on a chair using them... Boggled the hell outta me, but it felt good. :D
