    Just about everybody has to have seen the "Perfect Push Up" commercials if they haven't seen them in the stores. Has anyone tried 'em?

    If you don't know what I'm talking about, they're basically grips fixed to rotating disks so your arm can twist when you do pushups. I've seen 'em at a bunch of places for forty bucks, which is way out of my "might as well get it and try it out" range (college student).

    Give 'em a shot? Or get back on the pavement?

    Total Bullshit, IMHO.

    Why do you want your arms to twist while you do pushups?

    Pavement. Looks like a sure-fire way to over-rotate your arms and cause a rotator cuff injury. Or wrist. Or elbow.

    There are something like 5 or 6 kinds of pushups as it is. Don't know why someone had to go this direction. Ah, capitalism.

    A couple of the guys in my dorm both bought the perfect pushup after seeing it on the commercials a couple times. A month later, I see no difference in their physique. I'll see if I can steal their before/after pics. They really seemed to enjoy it though. They said they followed the plan to a T, too.

    Couldn't figure out what exactly they were supposed to do to improve on the exercise. I've got a few variations that do the job pretty well. I just don't like doing push ups in general and was looking for an easier way, I guess. Dang. Back to hard work and determination.

    I use them and I can tell a difference... but it seems like the biggest difference is in my triceps. They've gotten more defined and I can actually see them better. Not sure if that's because of the Perfect Push-Up or just because I've been doing push-ups period and it would have happened with regular push-ups. I feel more of a burn in my chest with the PP too. I know my body won't get like that hot model on the commercial JUST from using them though. LOL

    The perfect pushup has gotten some good reviews. I want to try to them out so that I can have a more defined upper body.

    They're at the gym I work at. No big deal, as far as I can tell.

    If you are going to buy them, Walmart sells them for about 20 bucks--Not the two easy payments of 19.99 or whatever plus shipping.
    I tried them out at midwest mania and I could feel a bit of a difference in my arms too.
