    Harbinger Push Up Bars Provide Comfortable Padded Workout

    July 30th, 2020

    Small product picture of a harbinger push up bar.

    Looking to tone and strengthen your upper body? Instead of leveraging your own wrists, try the much safer and more comfortable Harbinger Push Up Bars. These push up stands come fully padded, making them comfortable and easy to grip. They lie flat on the floor, creating a stable position for you to do regular and reverse push-ups. The polyethylene construction is super durable and the nonskid rubber pads keep the bars in place. Online reviews are positive, as those who enjoy working out love the even weight distribution that works the core without using other muscles to compensate. Now you can isolate specific muscle groups.

    At a great price, these push up bars are a nice addition to any workout room and have landed plenty of happy customers. They’re the same price as the GoFit Push Up Bars, which lack in the solid construction and fully padded design as the Harbinger ones. Even with the wide range of motions and the portability of these push up bars, there were still some negative issues with the product. Some product owners felt the bars were poorly made, with the plastic-like material breaking easily. Others felt that the bars weren’t as comfortable as advertised. Fortunately, product owners assured buyers that the wrists have some adjusting to do with any push up bars and the Harbinger push up grips were comfortable as promised. On the whole, these push up bars are a great addition to anyone’s workout routine, being available at an affordable price and maximizing upper chest exercises.

    Small product picture of garmin forerunner 305 GPS review.

    The Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS is one of the most accurate, reliable wrist-mounted GPS trackers on the market. A top product for Garmin and a major advancement from other GPS trackers, this device is on the cutting-edge of technology. The Forerunner 305 includes heart rate monitoring, performance tracking, GPS reception and the capability to connect to Garmin’s wireless bicycle speed and cadence sensor. Few other GPS trackers come close to this innovative design. The Forerunner 301 is what started it all, but the company knew that the model lacked in the design department and set out to remedy the issue.

    Offering the same accurate, dependable features, the Forerunner 305 is a step-up from the 301, offering a distinct design that puts it over the top. Highlights include curved casing that allows the antenna to face upward, a waterproof exterior, widescreen display and high resolution that offers supreme clarity. It appears as if Garmin’s work on the Forerunner 305 has paid off, as this product has received exceptional reviews. With thousands of online ratings from product owners, the vast majority have been more than satisfied with the Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS. Product owners point out such highlights as being able to customize the display screen, its dependability and consistency for more efficient workouts, and relatively fast syncing with the satellites.

    Valeo Speed Jump Rope Has Sealed Ball Bearings For Even Rotation

    December 26th, 2019

    Small product picture of speed jum rope review.

    When you are looking for an opportunity to exercise, the Valeo JRS jump rope is a great model for speed and agility as far as jump ropes are concerned. The makers claim that it is nicely used for adults as well as children, creating the perfect adjustments for any height. It can be used for those who are growing in height too. The knots on the rope are somewhat cumbersome to the motion of the rope, though that can be removed by cutting away any excess rope. The rope is also not long enough for anyone who is taller than six feet and two inches. Measuring means standing in the middle of the rope with both feet and pulling the rope to the armpits.

    As far as price and speed are concerned, the two are complementary. The price is worth it for the speed of the jump rope. The caps can be easily pulled off of the ends of the handles so that the rope can be measured for the appropriate length. This jump rope comes equipped with two additional crimp bands. This is perfect if you need to readjust the length of the rope by cutting off additional rope length and crimping the new bands in place, then replacing the cap. Of course, before cutting the rope, it is recommended that you practice with the intended length so that you don’t cut it too short on accident.
