Extended Squat Yoke Bar

PVC Triceps Pushups Stand

Made of 3/4" PVC. This stand can be used against the edge of a counter, table, dresser, chair, etc. The diameters of the PVC on either end of the handle assembly were sanded down so that it would rotate freely within the elbows on either end. 3/8" foam on a 1 x 4 provides a cushion to rest your hands against while gripping the handles. This device keeps you firmly in place while performing triceps pushups.
