I've been doing daily push-ups for years. I started noticing that I would wake up in the mornings with a lack of good circulation to my hands. This obviously worried me and I sought out the advice of my massage/physical therapist.
Without me even telling her that I do daily push-ups she immediately asked me if I use push-up bars when I exercise. I said no. She told me that is the answer to my problems.
Apparently when a lot of people do regular push-ups they don't work their back muscles enough. I was stopping midway without fully extending my trapezius muscles. This was creating a lot of tension and scarring at my outer chest muscles near my shoulders causing the restriction in circulation.
The CAP barbells force you to do a full extension and within weeks I was sleeping better. Highly recommended.
