DS, age 11, has been advised to try using a chin up Bart strengthen his upper body. I've seen lots for sale on the net but I'm a tad concerned as DS's hands are tiny, even for an 11 yr old, and he might not be able to grip properly. Anyone any ideas of where I might get one suitable for a child? It needs to be for indoor all year round use. Many TIA.
Hi, I coach gymnastics and we always advise the competitive gymnasts to get themselves a chin up bar. Those from Argos are fine ... We have never been told that there is a problem and we have children as young as 5 or 6 using them. I would be interested to hear if anyone else has any other suggestions.
Believe me you will remember to look out for the bar after the first twenty times of walking into it
dd has a bar from argos which we put up for her when she is doing her conditioning for gymnastics. It then gets taken down and left by the side of the door when she has finished. Its set at a height that she needs lifted to get onto it but thats more to stop her cheating and putting her feet down between repititions iyswim.
