Handles - On many pages you can find, that this kind of handles usually are made of plastic tubing. My handles are made from broken handle of a shovel . I cut two pieces from it- length :13 cm, diameter: 3.5 cm. Each piece was drilled through. Diameter of the hole was 1.5 cm

Polypropylene tape - width of 30mm - I used up 476cm. Colour of tapes is up to you. I used two different colours

2 x tape Polypropylene with a width of 25mm with automatic clamp

2 x 25mm strips regulator - The regulator is required to effectively elongate or shorten our belts during our training.
