Best wooden parallettes India – PVC parallettes for Training
The wooden parallettes in India are really tall push up bars that can be used for a range of calisthenics exercises. But be sure to progress slowly with the parallettes otherwise injuries might happen. Parallettes India are rare and we do not have brands like rouge, thnx etc. But we have USI parallettes, Viva vibe wood parallettes and IBS.
In India it is rare to find callisthenics equipments as people are chasing the pump and not the actual strength. But yet there are some brands who make different workout equipment for us.
Wooden Parallettes bars are popular but you can do just fine with PVC and iron parallettes as well. These bars are created to mimic the parallel bars at professional gymnasiums. And these are used by gymnasts as well.
Tip: For starting out with your parallettes in India, start with L-sit and usual push up, dips. And to ramp up the difficulty get yourself a Weighted Vest

Who should use Parallettes bars in India
Certainly if you are here then you are above those gym goers who are just into bicep curls and you are into doing something off beat. Parallettes bars are to be used by those who have fairly low body fat and have some amount of cardiovascular fitness and flexibility.
At least some minimum fitness is required as few exercises
And definitely some grip strength otherwise the parallettes might slip.
Parallette Bar exercises
- Push up (Archer, Type Writer)
- Pike push up
- Planche variations (Be careful)
- Mountain Climbers
- Shoot through
Parallettes bars can be used strengthen all of your body especially arms, back and core. It gets you to one step closer to a ripped body like Gymnasts.
Correct form is a must for safety and proper execution of the exercises like Planche, Shoot through etc.
Why use Parallettes in India
Since working out at home in India comes with challenges of managing space and buying costly exercise equipment parallettes provides an amazing value. Wooden or pvc parallettes bars do not take much space yet provide an opportunity to get really strong at controlling your bodyweight.
Strength training with dumbbells, barbells is fine but unless you can control your own bodyweight effectively then it does not matter. Many people can bench 100kgs but can not do 40 push ups or do more than 10 pull ups.
Ever wondered why Gymnasts have that ripped body? They can control their bodyweight much better in space than us and they regularly use Gymnastic rings and parallettes bars.
By the way do not try to use push up bars as parallettes bars. Push up bars are small, often made with plastic and have very less height from ground. Your parallettes bars in India like the ones from USI and IBS are meant to carry your all body weight.
Also do not use tall dip bars as alternatives for exercises to be done on parallettes bars in India weather it is made of wood or pvc or iron.
