    Was thinking of maybe getting one. Looked a little faddish and like an infomercial, but the guys on Elitefts are selling it so I was thinking it may actually have some value for someone with shoulder problems. They don't seem to sell stuff they don't believe in.
    Anybody have any opinions or maybe have used the system?

    This is for pushups, right? It will allow your pushup to more closely mimic a (correct) dumbbell press. You'll be able to get your elbows in closer to your torso at the bottom, which is a plus because it externally rotates the humerus and thus places more emphasis on the pecs as well.

    going to the site you can see 4 balls each with a number on them; 1, 2, 3, 4. so im going to guess they are 1lbs, 2lbs, 3lbs and 4lbs.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Could be...but they also refer to ball 1 as ball one, not 'the one pound ball'.

    Going to start with a baseball and see what happens

    Looks like it is a harness to spread the shoulder joint and eliviate compression in the socket plus some weights to spin around as RC strengthning

    Db2000,

    Let me know if you try it. I'm interested to see if it works. I have a contact who is friends with some PT's and he was going to do some asking for me. I'll post what I find out here.

    Just made one with a baseball and a skipping rope with ball bearings.
    Once I made the distance about 6 inches between the ball and the handle I had a pretty wicked rotator cuff workout
