I made me a pair. Thanks for the help everyone I'm trying to learn as I go with them. It's suprising how sore just these movements can make you. Right now I'm working on L-sits, Tucks, and pushups on them. I tried a handstand against a wall, but they kept slipping out from under me. The only wall space i have is on carpet, which doesn't have much resistance to the pvc pipe. I'll find something to stop the sliding. Does anyone do dips on these. I have a pull-up bar at home, but no where to do dips. I was thinking maybe putting my feet up on something and doing dips with them. Any guesses on a good sub compared to rings. I know the regular dip is 3 to 1, but it seems even easier if you dip on these with your feet up.

Yeah, feet elevated dips are a starting point to get to real dips. You're kinda limited to that unless you put your parallettes up on something.
