I'm putting in a horizontal bar and parallel bars at home. What are the best diameters for each type of bar.....and what width should the parallel bars be apart?
Thanks.

Ya beat me to that one Razz

The 'standard' width is about 1" - same as gymnastics bars however anything from 1"-2" works fine.

(My own is standard scaffolding which is 1.75" Smile )
