  1. Hey Christoph,

    This is a really nice idea to find or use a certain sustainability even with "sports equipment".

    Great listing. Really nice contribution.

    Best regards

  2. with your own hands

    Hm, I am somewhat ambivalent: These are really nice products, but do you really need them?
    For example, I can do push-ups without the machine. ?

    1. No one needs all these devices at once, but each one could help individually. The training with push-up grips already especially the wrists. Those who are somewhat burdened should then train with them to avoid further/new complaints.

      Many greetings
