    Temporary Parallel Bars - ideas needed

    Hello - does anyone have any clever ideas of how to attach / lash / clamp these parallel bars to my stall bars (pics attached). I need to able to remove them so my wife can park in the garage The P-bars are made of sched 40 1 1/4" PVC, with a 1" galv. pipe inside for strength. The stall bar dowels are 1.5" diameter. This is a "work in progress". Notice I also have some wall studs I could attach to. The main need for stability is in the direction perpendicular to the wall. Thanks! -Mitch

    Portable Parallel Bars

    Can anyone recommend a portable parallel bar set up? I currently work out of a space where I cannot keep them up would need them to fold up to slide next to the wall. I have used the PowerMonkey one's but David Durante suggested I wait till they have new model or something else as they are very shaky. I found a bunch online, but I prefer the judgement of my peers with this topic if possible prior to making a decision. Also, they will primarily be used for the Hollow Back Press Dip progressions in a group class, nothing too dynamic for the moment. Thanks

    Parallel Bar - New Idea?

    I know many have already talked about homemade parallel bars but, I have an idea and wonder if anyone has tried anything like this? I want to attach cables or a rope thru a PVC pipe (1 1/2" to 2" in dia) attached wall to wall (approx. 10ft. apart) with the use of anchor bolts / eye bolts in my wall studs. This should allow me to unclip / unhook the rope or the cable and set the bars aside out of my way when not in use. I definitely need the bars to be at least strong enough to do swinging dips. I think the idea will work but i'm wondering if they will sway around & require some extra support? Any advice would be appreciated before i give my idea a try. Or if anyone has done this already what did you do to make it work? Nick

    Congratulations Allan Bower!

    Congratulations to Allan Bower for winning a Silver Medal on Parallel Bars and a Bronze Medal on Pommel Horse at the USA Championships today. It's also a special day in that it was the last junior men's competition for Allan before starting his career at the University of Oklahoma (OU) under Coach Mark Williams. Allan will be attending OU on a full athletic scholarship. I'd like to invite anyone who has either watched Allan's career or been a part of GymnasticBodies that's been influenced by him to extend your congratulations and support in this thread. We will be giving Allan the link to this to read in a few days. It's been a tremendous privilege of mine to work with Allan directly, especially over this past year. Not only is Allan (and all of Coach's athletes) a phenomenal gymnast but also a truly good person as well. Allan's Kovac on High Bar
  6. Hello all, I have a very simple training related question. I have discovered to my dismay that the parallel bar I had been using is simply too wide. So now I seek suggestion as to the course of action I may take. *Background story There is a parallel bar near my house (5 min walk) which I have been using for the past 10 months or so to get strong at regular dips as well as the support position of the dip ( top portion ) I have reached a stage where I can do easy 3x8 dips as well as a 60+ second support hold on the parallel bars. In BtGB, since the next course of improvement involves performing the Russian Dips, I tried to start integrating it for the past month or so. Nothing too much, simply trying to hold the bottom position of the RD with the upper arms resting on the bars. However, I faced specatuclar difficulties in trying to raise myself up from the position. I kept thinking it is possible I am not yet strong enough to get up from the bottom position, however, a nagging doubt began creeping up in my mind: that the bars might be too wide as in the bottom position, more often than not, I'd end up resting near my elbows instead of middle region of upper arms. I took a tape and measured the width: 28 inches!! That is 72 cm. Which is 8 inches or 20 cm too wide as per official FIG norms here :http://www.unorp.br/downloads_blogs/Nomenclatura_dos_aparelhos.pdf (Refer to the PB section ) -------- So I want to ask. Should I perhaps finally begin to train the support position in the rings? And as and when I start progressing in the support position, I commence Ring Dips? Because I had planned my training this way: PB Support Hold -> PB Dips -> PB Russian Dips -> XR Support Holds -> XR Dips Any help and input regarding this will be deeply appreciated. Thanks for going though my issue!
