Do any of you guys use gymnast rings to train with?
I built a pullup rack and purchased a set of rings to do bodyweight exercises with.
Right now I'm concentrating on 4 basic movements; pullups, dips, pushups and body rows, along with hanging knee crunches and L-sits.
I'll tell you, doing pushups and dips on the rings is much harder that the traditional way because of the involvement of stabilizer muscles.
And pullups and body rows are easier on the shoulder joints because the rings aren't stationary like a regular bar, so you can do the exercises in a groove that feels right for you.
Thoughts?
