Now, talking about the advantages of using parallettes versus hands on the floor.

  • One of the most obvious things is that they make your hands higher than your feet.
  • This elevation changes the workload and decreases the amount of force you need to generate to push yourself up, in movements like the push-up and the reverse press.

  • The palms facing each other create more load distribution in the muscles that support the front and back of the shoulders.
  • The position of the wrist used on the parallettes facilitates the feeling of support of the shoulders, keeps the joint of the wrists straight and avoids pain due to lack of flexibility.
  • Bodyweight exercises are suitable for everyone. The precised and controlled movements, along with gymnastic workouts, are great for building your strength, flexibility, and the control over the deep abdominal muscles, simply by adding them to your home workouts.
