Parallettes One is the only program on the market that builds full body strength (yup, legs too!) using nothing but a set of P-bars and your own bodyweight
Parallettes One Gives You:
- A solid base of strength, stability, and control in your core and shoulders
- Full-Body control and balance
- Clear instruction and routines designed to ensure progress with each workout
- Results in real life – not just in the gym
After 3 weeks, I’ve noticed incredible improvements with my hand balancing. Surprisingly, the increased strength is not so much from arms and shoulders, but from core activation. Tighter and lighter. Fantastic program.

If you’re at all familiar with what GMB is about, there’s a good chance that you already know what you’re after here.
You know that there’s more to fitness than how many pounds you can lift how many times. You want functional strength that you can use in the real world, for whatever it is you feel like doing.
You’re taking your training beyond the one-dimensional pressing routines of the bodybuilding magazines and into the world of 3D strength and body control.
Parallettes One is designed to build your body, yes, but we don’t stop there. Powerful shoulders, tight abs, pecs that are visible through your clothes are just side-effects of this program. The real goal?
Control. Balance. Mastery. Grace. Beauty.
OK, so maybe it seems like we’re going a little too far, but really, don’t we all aspire to move beautifully? Just looking good isn’t enough once you’ve seen what the human body is capable of – what your body is capable of. You don’t need to be content with adding a few more reps or a few pounds to the bar.
Parallette training can give you the skills as well as the strength to finally feel like you own your movement.
How Parallettes Build Superior Skills and Strength
Parallette training has come into vogue in recent years, mostly due to their portability, ease of construction, and effectiveness at building upper-body strength.
Parallettes give you two major advantages when mastering feats of balance and strength:
- Ground clearance
By increasing leverage, we’re able to add some advantage to skills like the planche that might otherwise be beyond our capability. As we train and improve, we can gradually rely less and less on the tool itself.
Adding ground clearance gives us more space to execute movements where we might not yet have the strength or mobility to perform the same skill on the floor.
These two advantages make parallette training a great choice for building the strength and mobility necessary to perform difficult bodyweight skills. It’s also a great way to practice technique without putting as much stress on the body (which is useful because fine motor control decreases as exercise intensity increases – in other words, you can’t do the fancy stuff when you’re muscles are struggling at the limit of their ability).
Since the Gold Medal Bodies approach to strength training is based on skill acquisition, it’s only natural that we would make use of parallettes to build both strength and skill.
Here’s Two Reasons You Simply Cannot Fail:
With most online training programs, once you download, you’re on your own. If you’re lucky, you might get access to a forum where your questions are laughed at or given half-assed answers by other clients who ultimately don’t know any more than you do. Or even worse, you might be asked to pay extra to have somebody look at a video and give some advice. That’s BS.
GMB is here to answer your questions and help you in any way we can. We’re super-nice, so get in touch
Even with the best support in the world, nothing is perfect, and no single program will work for everyone. We’ve worked hard to make Parallettes One adaptable to a variety of situations, but the bottom line is that, if it doesn’t work for you, we don’t want your money. Our promise of greater strength and new skills is genuine and backed by the following promise:
Try P1 for 60 days. Do the work. Ask questions. If you don’t get results, we’ll give you a full refund.
GMB has always exceeded my expectations in terms of providing a personal presence online. This is really where I feel GMB stands out among other fitness companies who provide little or no interaction after the initial sale. The ability to get feedback from the people who created the programs give a lot of added value.

Your Parallettes One Download Includes:
Our 69 page manual explains everything you need to know to put parallettes to work in your training -basic training theory, how to progress to the next level, managing your schedule, where to focus your attention while training – everything. It’s the most thorough guide to parallette training anywhere, so you’ll never be stuck wondering what happens next.
The last 30+ pages of the manual are dedicated to 24 Weekly Charts showing your day-by-day exactly what you need to accomplish to keep moving forward. No guesswork required. Just follow the plan and get strong.
We’ve included 5 Detailed Instruction Sessions explaining the correct form of each exercise in the program. If you’ve seen any of our sample videos, then you know that Ryan provides extremely detailed coaching on the precise techniques you need to perform the movements correctly.
These are the details the other guys always leave out (maybe they don’t know about them…). Everyone knows that doing an exercise right is often the difference between getting stronger and getting hurt. All Gold Medal Bodies courses are built on years of experience in athletics, coaching, and physical therapy, which means we know how to get optimal results safely. You simply will not find a better tutorial series for parallette exercises online.
In addition to the tutorials, there are 16 Walk-Through Videos covering each workout in the program. Follow along with these during your first couple of sessions as an example of the correct form and to ensure that you’re moving though the routine with the correct pace and rhythm. With a video for each workout, you’ll never have to worry about getting lost or trying to read the manual between sets. Put these on you iPod and take them with you for total convenience.
If your hands are grabbing p-bars near the floor, then you aren’t putting much weight on your legs… Unfortunately, there aren’t too many parallettes exercises for your bottom half.
Since nobody wants chicken legs, we created this bodyweight-only leg strength program to complement P1.
There are 3 Levels of difficulty with Instructional Videos and a Full Program Manual outlining how the Leg Module fits into your P1 training schedule. Some of these exercises are tried and true, and some of them you may not have seen before. In either case, they’re all brutally effective, and we explain them all in detail, revealing subtleties of execution that will multiply your rate of power development.
Jarlo created this flow routine to improve mobility where it counts and help you recover more quickly between workouts.
Our P1 Recovery Flow consists of a Manual and Tutorial Video for specific compensatory movements after performing P1. Any kind of intense strength training is going to cause muscle soreness and tightness. Performing these “compensatory exercises” will help to reduce and alleviate that discomfort.
Do this and say goodbye to feeling stiff and sore.
That’s a lot of strength-building resources, and they’re being put to good use by people all over the world who want to build powerful shoulders, arms, and trunk – people who are already closer to nailing skills like the planche, like handstands and other inverted positions.
Parallettes One is the program for increased forward pressing strength and control in inverted positions. There is nothing on the market like it that provides months of solid training progressions, clear instructions for each movement, and a clear path to more advanced skills.
Highly recommend the P1 program. I’ve been working on it myself over the past several weeks and have been having a blast!

Sound good? Then let’s get started.
Having gone through about 6 weeks of the program, I can say that I love the challenge.
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) a mere 6 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.

Hi! I just finished P1 (advanced) and I wanted to give you guys some feedback regarding the program.
First of all I just gotta say YOU ABSOLUTELY ROCK. In the three months since I embarked on my journey to complete the program I have made some monstrous gains in upper-body strength and core strength.
Stuff I thought I’d never do just got possible From barely being able to hold a tucked sit to cranking out high l-sits, straddles and inverted presses with ease. I’ve also noticed great carry-over strength to other advanced calisthenics.
Big thanks to you for creating such an awesome program. I’m looking forwards to trying out your other programs as well.
