P1 is the most fun I’ve had in forever.

P1 is the most fun I’ve had in forever.

It gave me a specific program… and some cool challenge moves to work towards, but also lots of stuff that was within my reach that I could rock out on.

Really cool progressions. I’m still amazed at how the first month sets up the second month, and how things like tuck-swing-to-L-sit are getting doable, which seemed totally impossible two months ago. In fact, everything seemed totally impossible when I started, but I’m doing it now, and that’s really awesome.

Anyway, I’m having so much fun with the pbars. Thanks again for putting together literally the most fun and accessible program out there. I already bought Parallettes Two, even though it’s a long ways off. =)

Parallettes One Creates Full-Body Strength & Stability

Let’s just go ahead and be honest: there are hundreds of exercise programs out there… What sets P1 apart from the rest? In a nutshell, it’s one simple thing:

P1 is the gateway to a whole world of exercises that don’t just make you sweat; this program actually teaches you to be better at using your body.


Yeah, you’ll get strong and your shirts will start fitting different because of the extra muscle around your chest and shoulders, but more important, you’ll develop greater control over your entire body in any position, from regular pressing exercises to inverted balancing and more.

It also includes bodyweight-only lower-body exercises so you don’t end up with the dreaded chicken legs.
So, that’s all cool and everything, but you might be wondering what exactly the deal is with parallettes and why you should bother with them in the first place.

3 Big Advantages of Using Parallettes

You’ve probably seen videos on YouTube of people using P-bars like glorified push-up bars… well, those people are doing it wrong. Here’s what parallettes are really great for:

Don’t Get Stuck – Programming Designed for Continual Progress without Stalling

Unlike some programs that give you a single workout to repeat forever, GMB recognizes that you’ll require different strategies as your strength and skills develop. That’s why Parallettes One includes four program phases, each building on the previous one to keep you making consistent progress.

Practicing Bodyweight Plank Hold on Parallettes

Phase 1
Strength Development

Strength is the foundation of increasing your movement capabilities, so P1 begins by building your strength in the basic movements everything else is built on.

Performing a Bodyweight Tuck Hold on Parallettes

Phase 2
Skill Development

As you continue building strength, Phase 2 introduces more skill focus and complex movements that will ingrain new motor patterns, developing balance and agility.

Phase 3
Flow Acquisition

Once you’ve developed the basic level of body control to execute each skill, we begin building combinations that offer even greater challenge and stimulation.

Phase 4
Flow “Mastery”

After several weeks of strength and skill practice, you’ll work to smooth out the transitions and cut down the rest time for more efficient applied movements.

So I’ve been doing calisthenics for a while now (Al Kavadlo’s and Steve Kamb’s programs mainly) but after I got P1 a couple of weeks ago I knew I found something awesome again. I’ve been following GMB for at least 4-5 months now and I’ve learned a LOT from you guys but never really wanted to go “full gymnast.” Especially since the first phase of P1 seemed pretty easy: kneeling push ups, plank holds for 5 secs etc. That’s way too easy, right? Wrong.

It was surprisingly humbling to complete my first p-bar workout. So I decided to put aside my intense calisthenics routine and focused solely on P1. I never thought I’ll have to start something again from the very basics but I love it!

There’s nothing quite like starting a program unable to perform a movement, only to find ownership of that movement (and quite a few others) just weeks later. You can’t say that about many programs, as many have you starting and ending the program with the same movements, only increasing reps or sets, decreasing rest or a combo of both.

P1 has dramatically increased my strength.

Parallettes One will make you
stronger, guaranteed.

Give P1 an honest try. The fact is, if you do the work, you’ll get results.
After the first four weeks, if you’re not measurably, noticeably stronger, we don’t want your money.

I have been meaning to do this for a while now, but I wanted to take a minute to write in and let you know what a wonderful experience I am having on the P1 program. I began my interest in bodyweight strength as a yogi specializing in hand-balancing poses. After some failed attempts at handstand last year, I wound up with wrist injuries and ended up in physical therapy to treat shoulder dyskinesia (I had been doing all my hand-balancing from my chest muscles – oops!). After three months of PT, I started the parallettes program in the hopes that it would help me rebuild strength in the right parts of my body and help me return to pressing and bodyweight strength, using my newfound lats and deep shoulder muscles.

I have been amazed by how much progress the parallettes have brought me, and how quickly. I am progressing faster than I could have imagined, my wrists and shoulders are free from pain, and my yoga practice has improved enormously. I am especially delighted with how easy the paralettes make it to create external rotation in the shoulders in pressing movements – that’s so important for all yoga balances and I find the parallettes make it much easier to create that motion, and thus easier to bring it with me onto the mat when I do poses like headstand prep or forearm balance prep/ Dolphin.

I am going into formal yoga teacher training in October (so excited!) and I definitely plan on recommending parallettes for my students who struggle with external rotation or who have had wrist injuries but are otherwise strong in practice. I also think it offers great “baby steps” toward balancing and proprioceptive awareness that a traditional Vinyasa practice sometimes does not, so it’s a great way to build strength and awareness for harder yoga poses.

Thanks again for making such a great program. It is easy to use and understand and I just couldn’t be more pleased with how my body is responding. I am having a wonderful time doing parallettes!
