Portable Parallel Bars
Parallel bars are a single piece of equipment with dozens of ways to train. Theyâ€™re a staple of bodyweight strength training â€“ and now available, totally portable, for your training.
With a solid rectangular purpose-designed base, the Pull Up Mate Parallel Bars offer strength and versatility. They offer access to all the gymnastic and calisthenic exercises youâ€™d expect, at a fraction of the price of permanent parallel bars.
With a storage bag included, you can take this kit anywhere for a great bodyweight workout on the go.
You can expect a solid, stable, reliable product that is tough enough to keep up but fits comfortably into your car.
Newly redesigned is the base section, which our designers have redeveloped in conjunction with fitness and calisthenics professionals to offer superior strength and stability.
Inverted Row ( pronated and supinated)
The inverted row looks like an upside-down push up, though is more similar to a barbell row. Hanging under the bars, both hands on a single bar, ensure that you have a straight body position all the way down your legs, with your heels resting on the floor. Lift yourself up so that the bar ends up just below your chin.
Clearly the parallel bars are a fantastic bit of kit to practice your dips on; allowing more movement than the regular Pull Up Mate, meaning that you can include variations on the standard dip, such as Russian (elbow) dips and even explosive dips.
L-Sits is an exercise that look pretty easy if you’ve never tried them before. But once you do, you realise that a highly developed core is vital in maintaining the sit. With moderate practice, 5 seconds should be possible. However, in order to maintain the sit in perfect form for 30 seconds requires dedicated training.
Tuck Planche Push Up – Advanced
Essentially a tucked push up using the parallel bars, the tuck planche push up requires great upper body strength and core muscles due to having to maintain stability, as well as holding your full body weight. Begin first by practicing the tuck planche on the ground for 15-30 seconds (stop whenever you feel pain and stretch, before starting again). Then progress to holding the position on the bars, before attempting the push up.
