StrongerGrip PUGS (Push Up Globe Spikes)

Make push-ups a little more of a challenge.


These look great.

For several years now I've been using the 'Warrior T' Push-up Handles (same basic idea), with no problems at all. Love 'em.

The StrongerGrip PUGS (Push Up Globe Spikes) are a slightly different shape, though with the same goal in mind - to make push-ups a little more of a challenge. In particular, the wrist plays a much bigger role.

I'll post a few thoughts shortly, and I'm also keen to hear from others who try them out. The StrongerGrip PUGS (Push Up Globe Spikes).



NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

And if you're looking for the full list of the training-related books I recommend, check out the complete lists on Goodreads.

Another Week Without.A week without chin-ups is a long one indeed. Although the shoulder isn't feeling too bad when it isn't lifting any real weight, I decided to give it another week to heal. I did, however, sneak a few deadlifts in...
How I Learned to Love Multi-Joint Exercises.Do you want to lose weight? Is your desire to lose weight complicated by an extreme dislike for almost all forms of cardiovascular training? Do you hate running; do you refuse to shell out half a grand for a decent bike; or are you too insecure about your sexuality to do the Denise Austin workout- you know the one, it comes on the Lifetime channel at 7 a.m., err, or so I hear from others? What are you to do?
Things Which Deserve More Attention : Forearm Training.
