So today I’m going to talk a little about a piece of equipment that I don’t think get’s used enough in a lot of gyms and those are parallel bars. There are SOO many things you can use them for, conditioning, kip drills, cast drills and a lot more. Here are some videos that might give you some ideas.
I actually really like this way of introducing kips. I’ve seen several coaches now doing this, and I think it’s awesome. Have you guys had much success with this?
P-bar swings are another one of my favorite drills. The bars don’t have to be nearly this high, and it’s a great way to build up shoulder strength. When kids get a little older and stronger they can easily spot each other going to handstand.
Not to worry!
