On the recommendation of someone on this site I got myself a pair of these: http://gymratz.co.uk/exercise-equipment/usrimage/00pressupbars.jpg And holy cow they work. For a week, everytime I did press ups, I used them and then after a week I took a rest day and tested myself on press ups the regular way (hands on the floor). Well I went from being able to do 28 in a row to being able to do 40 and my score in 2 mins went from 46 to 53. Get some! Cheap as chips so its definately worth a shot. J.
