they look like the portable ones, the kind you fit into your bag to take on business vacations and stuff..not really knock offs..

these are not the portable ones. the portable ones fold and lock into place. these just look like trash

If the pushups cost less than shipping that might be an indication of something

The portable ones do fold and lock into place. There are also different versions of the perfect pushup <-- one word ,not push up, two words.

These are not 'perfect' - the 'perfect' pushup also includes a member of the appropriate sex located beneath you. :9

If you can't do push ups using ONLY your hands and the ground below you, then you shouldn't be doing push ups.

Some people have wrist issues and these will put your wrists in a more aligned position, which in case is less painful. But then again, I tell my clients just to use dumbbells.

Depending on how you use these things, you can get a little more than a pushup... the rotation helps.

I own these ones, they are knock-offs, but they aren't "cheap."

They work great, definitely serve there purpose...well worth the money if you think you'll use 'em...

@luisibarra81: Actually, if you can't do push ups, you should be doing them, because you're lacking in strength. So you're wrong in that point. The point that you were trying to make is also wrong, because these actually give you a better and more complete workout than standard pushups, and this is the exact same movement that is recommended by the pros, when doing dumbell presses.

I don't think these are knock offs. They're actually advertising them as Perfect Pushups and I believe they are. There is more than one model of the PP (at least 4, in fact.) I believe these are the ones that I've seen at Big 5 or Walmart on sale for $9.99. They're different in that the base looks thinner, but I believe they perform the same function in the same manner.

Huh...I guess I missed the deal. All I see is a backup alarm on the website.

@kmpersonalfit: Thanks for the input. I've often wondered what the experts thought about products such as these.

These aren't knock-offs, perfect pushup came up with a new version.

These rotating handles let you dip down about 4-6 inches lower than on your hand giving you a depper work out.
The rotation gives all of your small stabilizer muscles in your shoulders and forearms a great work out. Definitely recommended.

When I started using these I could do about 40 pushups with my hands in one go but only 15-20 of these. These are tough but a good work out!

@kmpersonalfit: pfff. I would never pay that much for a personal trainer. No wonder you dont recommend these. If people knew they could pay $7 instead of $700 you guys would be begging on the streets. Get a second opinion for sure @dangerranger.

With how overrun this place has been with lingerie ads, this was not the kind of pushup I was expecting when I saw the listing.

@naaaziwooter: Actually we don't recommend these because like most fitness equipment people don't know how to use it properly. People tend to lower their bodies to far to the ground using these & cause over extension on the chest muscles & thus injure themselves.

Just because an item comes with a how to video doesn't mean you're using the item correctly. 95% of people still use the item wrong & either don't see results or hurt themselves.

I charge about industry average actually. You pay us for our knowledge, time, travel, our insurance cost, etc.

^^^ Sorry that should have read "below the national average"

@naaaziwooter: Not when I look at my clients & see what they have been doing & see how they are doing it wrong. Everyone of them has been doing something wrong, especially when it comes to using equipment.

Working out is about form, not speed, how you do it, or anything else... Form, Form, Form...

@kmpersonalfit: I didn't say the "pros" recommend these, I said these perform the same movement that is recommended in all the fitness magazines. It's where you do dumb bell presses and twist your hard so you move the dumb bell from horizontal position, when near you chest, to a vertical position, at the top of the list. This is the exact same thing. If you don't agree with that, than I wouldn't consider you a profession or anybody that actually knows what they're talking about.

@dazoneranger: I never said you said that we recommend these. I am tell you we do NOT recommend them & I am telling you why we do NOT recommend them. I know what muscle groups both work, if I didn't my sports science degree would be for nothing. :-(
