I’m impressed with the build and finish quality. It’s so versatile and comfortable.i recommend the kensui over all other vest designs. I sprung $27 for the short sleeves, which I’m super happy with to make the whole package compact and close to my body for pushups. You will be happiest with the pro max. The Brest and back plates are metal. Impressive.
Maximum respect to the Kensui Fitness Company for Inventing these awesome, amazing, and multifunctional handles!
The overall construction and design is second to none!
I brought these handles to the gym; and I used them for Seated Cable Rows, and Overhead Seated Lat Pull-down!
I also brought these handles to
"Prospect Park" for usage on the Pull-up bars!
3 different individuals were asking me where did I get these fantastic handles!
The Price was fair and the shipping could have been a little faster.
Yet; I am very grateful to have these handles!
Really comfortable and feel Durable and sturdy... I recomended. There are other options on the market that are too expensive, but these for the price are worth it as they get the job done. Good job!
Having injured both of my wrists over 10 years ago, doing push ups is a challenge due to 'extreme osteoarthritis' (I typically use parallettes or push up handles). The ascent, along with the optional boosters has opened up new possibilities - I am now able to support my wrists and gently increase the range of movement in both wrists while providing adequate support to avoid extreme discomfort. As noted by other users, the surface doesn't have much grip. To remedy this I applied self-adhesive sand paper I had on hand over the full length of each Ascent. I realize some might find the sandpaper a little too rough for bare hands however I find it works very well. In addition to doing push ups, I also like to use the Ascent as heel-raisers for squats and a variety of knee related exercises, which makes the Ascent my go-to workout travel accessory!
Ordered a pair of Swissies45 and feel I got duped into big back bundle at checkout, clicked to have a look and it added to order with no going back.
Contacted immediately to try and sort out prior to processing, gave up after three attempts with no answer.
When I received product, the bundle was incorrect anyway and included 2 pairs of Swissies45 with no standard Swissies.
Seems like a waste of time trying to deal with Customer support, so will probably just keep 1 pair 45s as intended and try to sell the other bits. Good quality equipment though!
Absolutely love these! Bought them nearly the first moment I heard of them. They're basically lightweight/portable Mag Grips that I keep in my gym bag to use at any gym I go to as I'm always switching up gyms or traveling for work. The little inserts to change angles are also genius. My favorite gym accessory.
Received my Swissies. One of the black rubber grips was completely missing from one of them. Have received no confirmation of a replacement, meaning I’m left with an unusable product. Very disappointed and would advise to avoid Kensui.
After the first order of non-ProMax handlebars which were perfect, I worried every day that one day a more resistant version would arrive! So it arrived, I didn't think twice and immediately bought them both. Two versions are perfect but the ProMax is safe and gives you more peace of mind to increase a little more weight on the dumbbells, perhaps those weighing 40kg and up! I sincerely thank Kensui Fitness for this wonderful opportunity!
I love the both grips that I purchased. I honestly can fell the back muscles engage more. I believe this due to the body trying to stabilize itself since the handles can move a little bit which is a plus in my opinion
I really like those handles.
Solid, lightweight (perfect also for travelling), good grip and allows for new pull-up grip variations. Can also be used with resistance bands. Recommended!
I was looking for a loadable option that I could go heavy with for farmers carry’s and inclined presses without the sleeve sticking out. I also wanted a solid material from a brand I could trust, so I waited a while before deciding on a set. When Kensui came out with their Adjustabell Max version I was excited. It addressed all my issues. There is knurling, which is nice. It could be more aggressive (in my opinion), but provides a nice grip. They are easy to change and the Olympic plate adapters are a great addition. Highly recommend those.
When screwed down they hold tight and secure and feel secure like a single weighted dumbbell. All you can ask for. At a price around $100 with the adapters, it’s a solid investment to be able to use all your 1” and 2” plates to have any dumbbell weight set you’d ever need.
A welcomed addition to my pull up bar, allows for greater variety and flexibility with exercises. Noticed less elbow stress as well. A worthwhile investment.
Opted for the EZ-Vest since I weigh 110bs, height 5’4” Weights sit well on my shoulders. Recovering from an ankle surgery, started rucking with 2x5 lbs, then 15(5,10lbs) for 2 weeks, will be upping weight to 20lbs(10,10) next week. Have added shoulder strap paddings, bought on Amazon, definitely more comfortable and will need for 20lbs and up. Kensui saves my arthritic hands and gives a better zone 2 workout since I’m walking way slower than my usual speed. Also doing squats, lunges and step ups with said weights. Would recommend to anyone needing stronger muscles and denser bones.
I already have the neutral grip handles. The canted handles allows even more variation.
Since I work full body functional workouts after doing all sort of pushups I finish with the grips in supinated position for the biceps involvement. Great add to my home gym!!!!!!
As a neutral grip adjustment handle, I was immediately drawn to these grips, they appear to be made of a high quality molded plastic that fit comfortably in my hands.
The ONLY drawback/criticism I have with these grips is that the "neck" following the knurling of the grip that lead into the hooks are a little on the short side. Were these "necks" extended by maybe an INCH, these would be Perfect.
The reason being is for resistance band (or non-barbell handle) use, the end of the hook is less than half an inch from my knuckle-pads. If I rotate my grip to a push or curl position, the end of the hook literally rests into the back of my hand, depending on the angle or force of resistance, can dig into the back of my hands. And if I wanted to try a pressing angle or grip, the hook presses into the underside of my palm (thenar eminence).
For my current use with bands, these are adequate and unique for their ease of use.
The design of the Ankr-Max is similar to an open ended ankle boot with straps. With accoutrements and a lot of extras, one could perform a decent range of leg exercises bilaterally or unilaterally depending on your price point. I went for the single Ankr-Max with 1 in. plate adaptors and the heel plate adaptor.
A few notes:
I received the two vegan leather ankle pads without any instruction of how to attach them as they are in the website photos. They appear to have a "padded" side and a micro-velcro side, but no means to attach them to the ankle screw-ins. So basically they are just not attached and sitting on the side.
The boot and attachments appear to be made with a high grade plastic, but it's not something I would want to test deliberately or accidentally with dropping or impact for fear of deforming or cracking a component.
While the heel insert is adequately designed, it was a little challenging to secure in the slot and with it inserted, it is very awkward to strap in and then move into an exercise position. You sort of have to keep your foot elevated and swing it around to a secure start point for reps.
The straps are of decent quality with the metal clips, I am concerned about the longevity of their use under load. They are also fairly long and the extra slack tends to just dangle or flop around when performing sets. I understand the strap length is if you wanted to do Tibialis Anterior work at a different foot angle, but the design is a little awkward and unwieldy to get in and out efficiently.
I would like to see if there are resistance band attachments in the future.
Recently jumped back in BJJ, I was looking for options to. Rebuild my grip strength, being an already experienced Kettlebell user I explored and came across clubs.
Kensui AdjustaClubs are the perfect solution for grip and shoulder strengthening. This cost efficient approach makes it great to build up your strength and the design keeps everything in place. Picture is shown with 10# concrete plates but have since switched to low profile plates. Both are great and the distribution of weight makes it a forearm crusher once you get flowing.
I needed something portable to do neutral-grip pulling exercises; these are perfect. They're easy to carry and a cinch to use. They fit on almost anything. I also got the little "max rotators," which is a decent solution for increasing range of motion. Highly recommended!
I really like the Adjusta-bell. They allow me to maximize the use of my existing weights without having to buy more. In that respect, they are a good cost effective product for home gym use. The additional attachments make using 2" Olympic plates easier and they can hold a lot of weight. They are also very comfortable to rest on you legs as there is no bar overhang.
Great product, good investment. : )
I purchased both classic swissies and swisses45. Products arrived within the stated time. Great products, they allow me to modify the grip on the pull-up bar, or use them with a barbell. Extremely robust and well made. I absolutely recommend them!
