The Perfect Pushup?

I have been using the perfect pushup and love it. I am interested to know what crossfit's view of this is. I feel like I get more range of motion and it feels better on my wrists. What is your feeling?

Re: The Perfect Pushup?

I haven't used those but I believe rings can mimic that same movement pattern but are an even better workout due to the use of more stabilizers. Now I just do most of my pushups on the rings. There's a 100 ring pushup workout that is brutal if done for time.

Agreed Matt! I've used the perfect pushups in the past and rings definitely work all the stabilizer muscles much more.

Re: The Perfect Pushup?

I got the perfect push up as a gift from a co-worker. They remind me of defibrillator paddles. I used them a few times and then noticed sharp pain in my elbows and have tried adjusting because I thought it was from user error, but still painful. I use rings and no joint problems at all.

Torque Athletic had these neat pushup thingies at the Games. I think it was like two prongs that would come out from a hand piece that you had to hold. Brutal. Reminded me of an old Okinawan kobudo hand weapon which are basically like brass knuckles.
