"A fellow trainer, Tom Brose, also gave me the following instructions for building a great set of parallettes:
One PVC pipe 10 feet, 1 1/2″ diameter
Four elbow connectors
Four T-joint connectors
Eight end caps
PVC pipe glue
Cut the 10 foot pipe into the following sections:
Two 2 foot sections
Four 8 inch sections
Eight 5 inch sections
If you?ve done it right, there should be no leftover pipe
The 5 inch sections are the feet, the 8 inch sections are the vertical legs, and the 2 foot sections are the part where your hands go. Take a look at the picture and it?s pretty easy to figure out where everything goes.
When gluing everything together, I recommend starting with the feet and legs first. They just make a ?T? and require no adjustment. Glue the elbow connectors to the 2 foot sections next. You can then press the elbow connectors down against a hard floor to make sure they are lined up at the same angle. Finally, glue in the legs to the top and adjust quickly to get the legs lined up parallel before everything dries.
There you go, a nice set of parallettes that should work well for your training."
