DIY Parallel Bars

Recommended Posts

Chad Burger

Hi all,

I just finished building a set of parallel bars to use as I am just now moving to the Russian dip progression.  Seem to be sturdy and are working out great so far.  Cost for the wood and material was about $100.

Sweet!

You might also need some bracing on each side: bottom left to top right, as the russian dips involve pushing backward.

Is there anything under the feet? (wooden parts that extend outwards on each side).

Thanks Nick!  I did add blocks under the corners after the picture was taken.  I will take your advice a brace the posts.
