Rated 5 out of 5 by BK Solid even with me at 235lbs and bringing it!
I'm on my 3rd day of P90x and am highly recommending these to anyone. I used to have some rounded plastic grips over metal bars that really hurt my hands because the diameter was too small.
These are actually quite heavy - read: sturdy - and the foam grip is great and the diameter is wide to spread the weight of your body out across your hands. Weighing 235, most other stands hurt my hands. The wide base works well to do wide stance pushups - basically not allowing you to roll your wrists. The base also has rubber on the bottom to prevent them sliding sideways - which happens with my Power Blocks when I try to use them as push up stands.
Just don't like paying for shipping on every product I order from Beach Body. Can't they just put all products in one box and charge less for shipping for ordering more at once?

I use these stands now for all my workouts: P90x, P90x+, One on One. They are very sturdy, and they allow me to goooo deeper. I would not hesitate to make the purchase. Well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott PowerStands are life-time investment worth making
WOW! The PowerStands are tremendous! I've had trouble doing pushups for more than 35 years due to a broken wrist I suffered when I was in seventh grade. I re-injured my wrist this spring riding a jumper bike. The PowerStands make doing pushups a breeze. No wrist pain at all. The wide diameter grips are soft and perfectly angled. The wide, round, base makes the stands impossible to topple over which is extremely important when you have wrist problems. The height of the stands makes every pushup deep, like doing pushups between chairs, it's like there's no floor. I am very excited about the results even after only using them a couple of days. I can't recommend buying anything but the PowerStands. Worth every penny!

Rated 0 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Okay i just got my power stands today and I can safley say that they are the best push up bars ever. I was little sceptical when I saw them, but after my old push up bars rolled on me and I fell and and got hurt I knew it was time for a change. And it was the best choice I ever made. thanks Tony Horton. BRING IT.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Sammy I have used the Power Stands with the Insanity workout, I have had wrist injuries and the Power Stands work perfectly for wrist support and I don't feel any pain. Thanks Beach Body for this excellent product.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Jeff I was skeptical about these simply based on the 39.99 price tag but I must say what a good purchase these were. Not only do they support proper positioning of the wrists, but they aid in increasing range of motion giving a deeper, truer push up. They also double as dip stands as seen in the video and are extremely well made. My hat is off to Mr. Horton and beachbody for creating and supplying not only excellent programs but high quality accessories go with them. Thank you.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Darren Being an individual who is naturally skinny and having a smaller build I am consistently dealing with sore wrists from bringing it during my P90X, P90X Plus, and One on One workouts. Using Tony Hortons PowerStands naturally keeps my hands, wrists, and forearms in almost perfect alignment during my workouts so I don't experience any pain allowing me to focus on form and achieve max reps for each routine. Thanx T. Hortonhead, these PowerStands rock.
