- Wooden Rings and a place to hang them, like from a pull up bar, playground, tree, etc.
- They are so cheap nowadays, there is no excuse to not get them!
- The higher of an anchor point you could find, the more fun many exercises become, especially if you’re tall!
- Chalk to help with maintaining a false grip. You may not need it, but it definitely helps.
- Flat Aylio bands for shoulder mobility and warm up.
- If you have other kinds of bands (like the tubular ones), those will work too. But if you don’t and are looking for a recommendation, I recommend the flat Aylio bands because they are identical to the nice “Therabands” physical therapists often use but are much more affordable and it comes with 3 different resistances!
Highly recommended if wrists hurt:
- Parallettes, push up bars or parallel bars help reduce wrist limitations for the Planche and Handstand related exercises.
- Stable dumbbells can do the trick as well.
- If you’re into DIY options, here are 3 different parallette construction tutorials.
Mandatory in the latter stages:
- Strong “50lb” resistance band for assistance in planche training and back rolls on the rings.
- If you’re under 150lbs (or need less assistance eventually), you will want to get a lighter band such as this 30-50lb one.
- Ankle weights to increase difficulty for any and all exercises and help bridge the gap between FL progressions.
- If you have access to parallel bars and wide pull up bars, there are some accessory exercises in this routine that utilize them.
