In the vein of the TRX home gym, monkii bars strive to the most portable and versatile piece of fitness equipment you own. With the thought being that if you always have your equipment with you, and hundreds of different workout options to choose from, you'll have no excuse not to suck it up and sweat it out daily. Yeah. Right.

Still, if you are a committed fitness junkie, monkii bars are indeed a go-anywhere go-to, with some design and usage differences between TRX that might make them your preferred bringer of the burn. monkii bars arrive as sets of 2 hard maple grips wrapped around aerospace-grade aluminum cores. Inside, they each store 18' of high-strength Spectra suspension line you can hang from any sturdy anchor or structure, and then hang from yourself (check out how much co-creator Dan Vinson trusts its durability in his demo of extreme monkii barring off the side of a cliff in the image gallery above). monkii bars also include a line length adjuster for setting it to your preferred height during different exercises.

A few possible monkii bars exercises include pushups, pullups, dips, inverted rows, and muscle-ups. If you've got some gymnast in you, you can also use them as rings and iron cross or L-seat it out. Possible attachment points are also in the many, such as a tree branch, a door jamb, an exposed roof beam, or, hey, some monkey bars. Unlike the TRX "V" configuration, each monkii bar suspension line is on an independent loop for more flexibility in setup, and more available exercises.
