Parallettes are one of the most useful workout equipment for calisthenics training and take home workouts & outdoor workouts to a new level. They can be used for all levels, for training almost all muscle groups and expand the variety of your calisthenics & bodyweight fitness exercises. Parallettes, or also called mini bars or push-up grips, improve wrist position during exercises push-ups, handstands and co. and create a more natural position for the wrists. They offer optimal grip for your exercises due to the 40mm wide handle and increase the range of motion during push ups, handstand push ups and tricep dips. This makes them an upgrade for home gym, calisthenics park & outdoor workout.
Wooden handles have a great advantage with Parallettes in that they absorb sweat and are comfortable to hold despite the rough surface. Wood naturally brings many positive properties and has proven itself in equipment for gymnastics & calisthenics. Metal handles promote sweat production on the hands during intensive workouts and a loss of control occurs during exercises such as handstands, planche & co. This phenomenon can be avoided with cotton tape, because like wood it also absorbs the athlete's sweat and has a pleasant, rough surface. So that you can take your existing Parallettes to the next level or vary your GORNATION Parallettes with tape & wood, every pair of Parallettes at GORNATION comes with two rolls of tape to give you maximum grip during your calisthenics workouts.
