Pull ups and chin ups are undisputed rock stars when it comes to building a strong and beautiful back. And if you’re familiar with our Body Redesign concept, you know you can’t ignore your back if you want to look your best…
Let’s take a look at some of the different ways you can shape your back with a chin up bar.
Did you read that and think “What the heck’s a parallette?”
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. This portable tool has been kicking around the fitness world for a few years now. But it isn’t as widely used as it should be.
Parallettes are basically bars raised up on supports. Like those push up grips you see at Wall-Mart, but longer. Gymnasts use them to train for parallel bars. And fitness enthusiasts use them to build pressing power and rock hard core strength.
I made my own several years ago for about $15 using PVC pipe. And then last summer I treated myself to a nice wooden set. They’re simple, sturdy, and you can take them apart and throw them in a bag to train on the road.
The sun warms your skin as you lie on your towel, listening to the waves lap gently at a sandy beach. A soft breeze carries away all your worries. All your stress. You lie there enjoying the peace and the calm. At that moment, nothing else matters. Nothing at all.
