Kettler Push Up Bars
Advantages: Easy to use, light but sturdy bars. Comfy foam padding on the top of bars, Small enough to store
I originally purchased the Kettler push up bars for my husband as i may have said in previous reviews he was in a bad car accident a few years ago and bed bound for 9 months. After my husband got home from the hospital i was told he would never work again nor would he ever be able to use his arms for any strenuous work however my husband was determined to change this. The Kettler push up bas were purchased online from weightsworld.uk although they don't seem to stock this brand anymore.
Kettler push up bars cost £14.99 from weightsworld and apart from Amazon uk i cant find anyone else who stocks the bars.
Kettlers push up bars come ready built and in a box secured with clear plastic wrap. The packaging is easy to cut through and remove the bars from the box. The instructions in the box show picture diagrams of different ways to use the push up bars these are handy to keep looking over make sure you are using the bars correctly.
Kettler push up bars are made from strong polypropolene making them weigh less than the metal push up bars. These are black in colour, shaped like a semi circle with black stopper grips on the ends. For added comfort the bars have foam wrapped around the tops where hands should be this is red in colour.
Although my husband has been using the bars for two years i started using them in the summer this year when i became paranoid about my bingo wings. I never liked doing push ups and my arms seemed really weak however the Kettler push up bars really help not only to do the push up exercised but so you are in the proper position and not putting strain on wrists or arms.
To use the Kettler push up bars you have to position one at either side of your arms in line with your shoulders so your arms should be straight in line with your shoulders and the push up bars. Having the bars properly set up means no strains and leaves a gap for your head to pass by the bars.
Doing a full body stretch whilst gripping the push up bars and putting all your upper body weight on the bars lower your body and bend your elbows out as you face the ground. I try put the tip of my nose on the floor and push back up.
You have to work with your body and don't push to hard, after 7 months stating at 5 reps a day i can only do 15 now before i feel like im going to nose drive the floor because my arms are falling off.
Kettler push up bars give comfortable grip on the handles , feel sturdy in use yet light enough to move around. I like the fact i can hide the push up bars under the bed and take up no room.
Kettler push up bars can be used for building up the chest, arm and shoulder muscles and improving your core.
My husband did have a long process in the recovery department and used the push up bars as well as other items to help build up his arms are wrists through blood sweat tears and determination he returned to work in june this year. As for my bingo wings they have decreased in size maybe due to exercise and using the push up bars or through the intense diet i was on either way my arms and chest area has been greatly improved. I found the push up bars addictive and easy to use.
I highly recommend Kettler push up bars.
