We've now released our guide article to help make your own PVC parallettes.
Parallettes are an incredible bodyweight training tool and this article sees the introduction of a new area to our site devoted to DIY Fitness Equipment.
Here we'll be posting all our tried-and-tested methods for making your own training equipment.
Elite fitness can be forged out of the most basic of kit and sometimes it's better, cheaper or just more satisfying to make it with your own two hands!
This first article on how to make PVC parallettes is a great first addition to the DIY fitness section. PVC parallettes are a firm CrossFit favourite the world over and offer a really simple, durable and affordable way to begin bodyweight training.
Anyone who turns their nose up to bodyweight training should be invited to 'play' around on a set of parallettes because they represent true strength and take true dedication to master. Even the most basic exercises are incredibly difficult so if you're just starting out then prepare to be pissed off because these things are hard work and can be very frustrating, but ultimately very rewarding.
In the article you'll find detailed instructions on making parallettes from PVC pipe and it also includes a video overview and PDF checklist to help you on your way.
