Push-up Bars

If you're a push-up enthusiast you may want to invest in a simple piece of equipment: a pair of push-up bars
What are the advantages of doing push-ups with bars?

  1. It allows a greater range of motion (similar to pressing weights on a bench) which stimulates more muscle fibers and makes the exercise more difficult. 
  2. Puts less pressure on the wrists.
One can execute all kinds of push-up variations with the bars (diamond, wide, Hindu,etc...). You can buy push-up bars at your local sports shop or on the Internet. Most are reasonably priced (10-30 US dollars).That being said I wouldn't recommend the bars to beginners as a decent amount of upper-body and core strength is required to pressing your bodyweight with good form.
