I've been using dumbbells as stands for push up when ever possible, for the past year or so. But as I mentioned previously I can't do that if I am at an incline, or moving around (like T pushups). I also try to do that for tall plank as well, since the position is similar. It does help. Actually, last year my DH made me some wooden stands for doing pushups. They are really cute and purple. When I am working out at home I use them. I took them to work once when a class i was in had us doing crab walks. I made a great thunking noise as I crabbed about :)
I mostly feel it now doing step ups or lunges with heavy weights. When i start my workout I am fine, but after a few reps I feel like I need to put the weight down to give my arm a break.
I did find some hooks for $9, don't know if that is what i want. I do seem to have two problems, my wrist being one, and my grip being the other. I think the fist might be causing the second though.

I miss you Dad (I know you'd be proud of me).
