Back at the end of January I had the pleasure of meeting up with some new friends at a seminar they were hosting.
It was some top quality gymnastic strength type training information suitable for all levels.
It was a lot of fun and some of the exercises and drills were new to me. That’s saying something because I have a bit of experience in this field.
The best part though has to be the progressions. As you know training with balancing and bodyweight exercises it isn’t always easy to make the jump from one skill to the next. Progressions are the key that makes it work.
I’ve convinced them to give you some info to get started regarding training with parallettes.
In case you don’t know parallettes are mini parallel bars. The sizes can differ but they allow for some fun and unique training as you‘ll come to see.
Any pushup bar or similar setup can be used.
In fact in my book The Ultimate Guide to Handstand Pushups I show you how to make them. But I’m not going to make you buy the book to get started.
Over at my friend Mike’s site he has a good tutorial on how to put a set of parallettes together for cheap.
And tomorrow Ryan Hurst will show you how to use them. Stay tuned.
Good Luck and Good Hand Balancing,
