What exercises do you do on them. Are they primarily for gymnastics.
Do or Do not, there is no try!

Re: parallettes

wrist relief for hand balancing practice (handstand, planche development)
put a few of them side by side and you have a bench

Re: parallettes

Burpees. Saw on a thread here once that raising the hands slightly in the burpee can assist in avoiding lower back pain (which I sometimes would get from them). Have found that helpful. But mainly push-ups (for me anyway). 1 good deep one is worth at least double without the parallettes.
