Although making your own is certainly inexpensive and easy (and the preferred CrossFit solution), you can also get them pretty cheap from a variety of sources.

They're usually called "push up bars"; here is amazon.co.uk's list:

and here is a more extensive list from amazon.com

(both w/f safe).

Adrian, not sure what the situation is in Ireland but here in the UK the PVC tubing available in hardware stores would be used for drinking straws in most other countries. The push-up bars suggested by David would be a good option.

If you wanted to go the DIY route, cut a couple of 6 inch triangles and get a couple of lengths of wooden dowel about 30mm diameter. Drill through the top corner of each triangle and fit the dowel before gluing it.

Cheers, kempie
