“Reg Park’s theory was that first you have to build the mass and then chisel it down to get the quality; you work on your body the way a sculptor would work on a piece of clay or wood or steel. You rough it out””the more carefully, the more thoroughly, the better”” then you start to cut and define. You work it down gradually until it’s ready to be rubbed and polished. And that’s when you really know about the foundation. Then all the faults of poor early training stand out as hopeless, almost irreparable flaws. [..]
Have you ever done a lot of pushups, but find that your hands or wrists are hurting before your chest is hurting? Or maybe that you feel you could do more pushups if it was a little more comfortable? Or for those that do a lot of pushups but want to get more out of each pushup? Then for these cases, and many others, these power stands are really going to help. Tony Horton’s powerstands are essentially two raised handles on a base that allow you to have a comfortable grip so that you can both focus on your form, as well as getting deeper into your pushup to give you maximum results.
