Used primarily to target the pectoral muscles of the chest, push ups have been the staple of any bodyweight exercise regimen. However, because the range of motion of a traditional push up is limited to the length of the individual’s arms, the push up bar was invented. The heigh of the push up bars extends the distance traveled during the movement, creating a deeper motion and overall more effective exercise.
