Advanced Parallette Movements Part for Core and Shoulder Strength

The Parallete

The parallette: a small, simple looking training tool that can deliver massive results in the areas of core strength and mobility.

  • Does is it have versatility to create a large exercise movement library: Yes.
  • Can another piece of equipment duplicate what it offers? No.
  • Is it the best piece of equipment for certain movements? Yes
  • Will it break under heavy usage? No (at least not the ones we picked up from Rogue Fitness).
  • Can it be scaled in complexity and difficulty? Yes
  • Can it get you Sand&Steel Strong? Definitely.
