Parallettes may be one of the most versatile of all bodyweight training tools. Designed to simulate the parallel bars that can be seen in professional gymnasiums, these scaled down versions offer most of the versatility while taking up a fraction of the space. They can be used for basic strength exercises like push ups and dips, but the true training potential is in the static holds like L-Sits, Planches or in the super advanced moves like the handstand pushup. Wherever you’re current level is, you have plenty of room to progress with these super simple tools.
