EDITOR'S NOTE: Every Sunday we will be featuring a new bodyweight exercise video from physical therapist Ben Musholtauthor of the Mad Skills Exercise Encyclopedia. Ben has a diverse movement background, spanning board sports, martial arts, parkour, and gymnastics. Get watching and get moving!

 

Here are four basic bodyweight exercises for you to do on a set of parallettes: the incline push up, the bodyweight dip, the tuck hold, and the tuck planche. These exercises are especially useful progressions for beginners to work on, before moving onto more complex variations.
