5 Calisthenics Equipment You Should Get (in Australia)
There are many pieces of calisthenics equipment on the market these days. But not all of them are necessary for a great bodyweight workout.
There are many calisthenics parks that you can find in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, and Perth. But sometimes they might not be accessible for you, and a private training session can be very handy at home. With the equipment listed in this article, you can easily set up your own calisthenics home gym indoor or outdoor.
We'll discuss 5 pieces of equipment that we think is worth your money in Australia. They are :
- Weight Vest
- Gymnastic Rings
- Resistance Bands
- Wrist Wraps
The weight vest is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment you can own as a calisthenics athlete. It allows you to add more resistance to your bodyweight exercises, which makes them harder and more effective. A weight vest can be used for all sorts of bodyweight exercises, such as squats, push-ups, and pull-ups. Also, people who train CrossFit and run uses weight vest a lot and getting great results.
Most weight vest you can find in Australia comes in fixed weight or limited weight customizability (big weight plate). Grav Weight Vest can be adjusted down to 1kg (2.2lb) precision. Making skill progression a pleasure. It is one of the most compact designs in the market (covering only half the torso). Allow big range of motion for all the exercises you will do, while having great heat dissipation.
Another great thing is, you get free shipping within Australia for all the weighted vest collections.
Gymnastics rings are one of the most basic pieces of equipment, but they can be used to perform a wide variety of exercises and making them a lot harder. There is no way you can skimp on your workout and you will have to recruit 100% of the muscle fibers to combat the instability of the rings.
You can do almost all the calisthenics skills on a pair of gymnastic rings. Such as chest presses, triceps extensions, dip, pull-ups, planches, or even handstands. They can be attached to a sturdy post a tree branch, which is very convenient to locate in Australia.
Unlike typical gym rings that require you to eyeball for every adjustment, Grav Gymnastic Rings uses carabiners and a slot system so you can get perfect alignment in seconds. The rings are made with premium Zelkova wood with a smooth finish that is going to last for decades. Stop wasting your time and money on uncomfortable plastic rings.
Parallettes are a great way to add more difficulty to your push-ups, dips, and handstands. They are obviously an essential piece of equipment for calisthenics, but they can be used to perform a wide variety of exercises.
You can buy parallettes made from wood or metal, but we recommend getting the Grav Parallettes because you're getting the best of both worlds. It combines a wooden handle for the best grip and a metal body for extreme durability. Not a combination you find very often in the Australian calisthenics equipment market.
Parallettes also known as parallel bars, allow natural position for the wrist and are very comfortable to use. No more wrist pain by pressing your palm hard on the ground (in a push-up position). Working out on parallettes also make you elevated from the ground, thus you will have more range of motion for deeper muscle activation.
If there is only one piece of equipment that should bring while traveling, nothing is better than the super portable resistance bands. They come in a great variety of sizes and thickness, each size carries a different level of tension. Resistance bands, or power bands, are perfect for adding extra resistance to bodyweight exercises or even using them as a replacement for weights.
You can use different band combinations to create endless workout possibilities. For example, if you’re looking for a challenging chest workout, you can use the band to do push-ups with your feet elevated. Or you can use the band to do a bench press.
Grav Resistance Band is one of the best quality resistance bands in the Australian market. It is made of latex rubber with a thickness of 2.5mm, which makes it perfect for adding extra resistance to your exercises. The band also comes with a lifetime warranty, so you can be sure that it will last a long time.
Except for core and leg exercises, all calisthenics movements required strong wrists. Especially when you start progressing to more advanced skills, wrist wraps can help a lot to prevent any potential injury.
You don't have to spend a fortune on wrist wraps, because there is plenty of good quality wraps out there for a reasonable price. Grav Wrist Wraps is one of them. They are made of durable and strong cotton that is friendly to the skin.
Wrist wraps can help absorb sweat from the arm so the palm stays dry. This is important because when the palm sweats, it can cause the grip on the equipment to slip. This can lead to a loss of balance and potential injury. Grav Wrist Wraps are made of natural and are designed to absorb sweat and keep the palm dry.
Grav Wrist Wraps also come with a quick-adjust system that allows you to tighten or loosen the wrap with ease. This comes in very handy because you want the wrap to be snug but not too tight. You don't want to spend time adjusting and wrapping.
