Do you know what is the superiority of this PUSHRS Push Up Stand ?
A simple apparatus, invented by Christi Lane, to relieve the common and annoying wrist discomfort in plank or push-up position exercises. Rise in popularity of bodyweight exercises such as yoga, suspension training TRX and Pilates has led to a problem. Many of these exercise systems call for placing your hands on the ground with the wrists bent at a 90 degree angle often supporting partial if not all of your bodyweight. It is a misconception that strengthening the wrists will remedy the pain from stacking the bones. The issue is not lack of strength, but the alignment of the bones of the forearm and hand. We can look at knuckle-walking in our fellow primates to illustrate a straight line from hand to forearm the functional alignment of the wrist for bearing weight. PUSHRS assists this functional alignment. Christi Lane invented the device for Pilates and traditional plank and push-up exercises but once she handed PUSHRS to other exercise professionals, physical therapists and workout enthusiasts, the applications for use grew with the creativity of each individual. Yoga professionals have used them as a more organic yoga block and for handstands. For balance exercises, even for those not suffering from wrist pain, PUSHRS change the proprioception and leverage from the hands and force the core to work harder. TRX trainers use them for a combination of suspended abdominal and arm exercises to ease wrist pain and keep the flow and challenge of the class. Pilates instructors use them in classes to avoid drastic modifications in form and as a physical therapy tool. PUSHRS not only support your hands in their anatomical position, they also provide shock absorption. The area in your brain motor cortex devoted to your hands is about the same as the area devoted to your arms, trunk and legs. The positioning of your hands is as important to functional exercise as the form of the rest of your body.
Customer reviewsWrist and hand saver
For the past 11 years I have been struggling with arthritis in my wrists and hands caused after a car accident. I am a very active person so this sporadic pain causes discomfort at the most inopportune times while working out I started using these a couple days ago during my daily workouts in the morning and boy have I seen a major difference in my ability I am actually able to do pushups and balancing exercises without the aches and horrible sensations in my wrists and hands. These really are a gift to anyone who also suffers from this type of discomfort, no matter the reason and who want to utilize their muscles but are being hindered by the pain of the wrist or hands. Get a pair, I promise you won t regret it
