Introduction: Push Up Handle
To relieve the strain on my wrists I like to use homemade grips for push-ups. They are easy to manufacture and cost-effective. I was able to make the handles entirely from scraps.
- 4 x woodplank ( 7" x 3,5" x 1")
- 2 x wooden handle 1,4" diameter
- wood glaze or wood oil
- wood glue
- sand paper
Step 1: Dimensions
Step 2: Bringing the Pieces Into Shape
Saw the parts to the right length and cut the sides at an angle of 45 degrees.
I used a broken wooden handle from a spade, which is very comfortable to grip.
Step 3: Drill
Use a file to round off the edges. Then drill a hole for the wooden rod.
Step 4: Connecting the Parts
use some wood glue to connect the handle with the side parts. Then use sandpaper to sand down the joints.
Step 5: Finish the Surface
Sand all parts to paint them afterwards. Alternatively the handles can also be oiled.
Step 6: Adding Feets
Add some furniture feet pads to preserve the soil.
Step 7: You Are Done
That's it. You can use the handles not only for push-ups, but also for planks or L-sits.
Have fun at your next training.
