Handle for push-ups from the Xiaomi crowdfunding platform

I like physical activity, be fit. In recent months, Apple Watch motivates me to move more, thanks to monthly challenges. For example, this month I have to burn 24 700 calories and unfortunately I lazed around a bit. Only 3 days left until the end of May, and I have more than 4 thousands of kcal to burn. For sure it will be the end of the month for me, but I will do it - the medal for the month's challenges must be!

Some time ago, an interesting product from Yunmai appeared on the Xiaomi sales platform called Youpin. It is a special platform with a dozen or so holes and special handles. Among my friends, no one knew what the gadget was for, and this is just a push-up handle.

Each color is responsible for the involvement of another muscle group during push-ups. I can honestly say that I was skeptical about this product but after the first training I changed my mind. When I hold the handles my chest muscles are working much better than keeping my hands flat on the ground.

A year ago I used the application designed to call "pump training", from novice to the person who will perform 100 in one series. I remember that I did not finish the entire training plan. Once I did not want to do a workout, and then I have notoriously postponed ... and unfortunately it failed. I got to + - 70 pushups in one series, I was so close! The key to success? Do not post a single workout!

I came back to this application when I got a handle for Yunmai push-ups and I started from the intermediate level .. after a few days I gave up. I was not able to perform the assumed number of repetitions, although I managed to make it a year ago without the use of handles. I started training again, this time I chose the lowest level of difficulty. Pumps with handles, a different hand position are definitely more difficult and involve the chest more firmly. The cage is definitely more pumped, so far it only trains on the outer blue color. I will later turn to the shoulders, currently I focus on the cage.

I'll finish the 1 level soon and move to the second one.

What I like about the Yunmai product is folding. The platform has specially holes in which we put the handles and fold in half. Thanks to this, the handles are used as a transport handle. Pray "transport", but thanks to such a solution the handles will not be lost because they will always be with the platform. I recommend it if you do not have time for a gym and you want to work out at home.

Another important plus in the Yunmai product is the position of the wrists, it is "healthier" because they are not at an angle of 90 degrees.

For two workouts, I finish level one. Then 19 trainings on the second level in which I will perform 50 push-ups in one series on the last. If everything goes well then on the third level in the last 25 training I will do 100 push-ups in one series. May it succeed

I bought the Yunmai handle in the store
