    I have attached a photo of what I use to preserve my wrists.

    Did you forget the photo? :P

    I got an error message. Most likely user error!!

    Just to be clear, they come in pairs and these are made from wood. I added the black padded tube for comfort. The idea is that your hand and wrist is positioned with less stress compared with the 90 degree bend. I also use them for push which has the added benefit of a greater range of motion.

    Thank you for the pic and insights. I'll look into this!

    @lazycat2018 Awesome. Thanks for the explanation. :) For me, will be an interesting. I have jumped into 3 october challenges in addition to a recurring 10 day challenge. Hopefully all that is constructive and not defeatist. Time will tell!

    Gaz, very nice. I think I have seen people even use hexagonal dumbbells instead. Might give that a try and if I like, I think your wooden supports look more comfortable. Thank you

    @MaltedTea It looks like Maquina is not longer in business, but on amazon there is a very similar item by airogym

    @SModa61 Thanks for the update on the apparatus! For today's one measly 25 second plank, I used my hex DBs (I already had weight gloves on because I was doing a KB workout just beforehand). I think that had been mentioned as an alternative option to try earlier in this thread.

    It felt weird but not as weird as friction burn on one's elbows lol So I'll keep on with my DBs for this purpose this month. As for today...

    Ya, I mentioned that i've seen dumbbells used in that way. Glad you found something that works. Congrats!

    They are easy, but still provide some stretch
