    Default Push up resistance...

    Hey comrades ! Awhile ago I saw this power band or something like that that adds resistance when doing push ups. I can't find the ad anymore. Can anybody tell me if they have a web site URL or toll free phone number for this product ?

    Maybe you're thinking of the power pushup devices put out by lifeline. Their web address is:lifeline-usa.com. Matt Furey also sells them & his web address is mattfurey.com.

    Go to the link below. Everyone's experience with this (as with ANY tool) will be unique to THEIR preferences. I personally believe it does have a place. Definitely worth trying.

    Thanks for the link, guys. I am a little weary about getting this product. They claim that it can add up to XXX pounds (depending on the band). Wouldn't it depend how far you stretch the band because a band or a spring changes it resistance as you further extend it. Anybody else get good/bad results ?

    You can only *stretch* the bands SO far in doing a push-up. I like the product (and use it with clients/athletes) because of it's application of resistance at the top of the ROM (where a conventional push-up loses its punch).

    Also, if you are looking to do "explosive" concentrics (with slow eccentrics) the PPU is ideal.

    All said,It's still just a "tool". Not a necessity!

    Default Power Pushup 2? I like it

    Personally, I like the PP2 a lot. I use it for pushups and standing presses and like the feel of the resistance and how it increases through the lockout. It also seems to have a good effect on my shoulders. Of course you have to take the poundage equivalents and any comparisons to the bench press with a big boulder of salt.
