Four great reasons to try push up stands.
Range of Motion
Pushup stands are often used to increase the depth of retraction and range of motion in the push up move, leading to additional muscle recruitment of the pec muscles. Positioning the hands onto pushup handles elevated above the floor surface enables the chest to move below the plane of the hands during retraction. Re-positioning the pushup stands to various widths and locations relative to the shoulders allows for the focus and targeting of additional muscles of the upper, middle and lower chest, as well as the outer and inner pec muscles.
Hand and Wrist Ergonomics
Another popular reason people use push up stands is simply for hand, wrist, and forearm conditions that require a grip for comfort. Being able to position your hands in a way that loads the body weight ergonomically. Pushup handles alleviates common pain issues that come from supporting the full bodyweight in a bent 90-degree position on the floor. This position can be very uncomfortable for many people and can lead to long term problems with the wrists, elbows and hands. Pushup stands allow you to find the position that works for your anatomy and perform chest workouts like push ups, and core workouts like plank knees to elbows with correct positioning and ergonomics.
Increased Distance from the Floor
Using push up stands to Increase the distance of the plane of the body relative to the floor doesn’t just increase your chest workout range of motion. It also allows you to incorporate a whole new category of ab and core workout moves. Push up handles put your body in a better position for chest and core workout moves like Spider Man push ups, plank knees to elbows, mountain climbers and sit-throughs.
