CrossFit Ring Workouts

by Brad McLeod on April 7, 2012

CrossFit Ring Workouts

If you want to get freak like strong – get a set of gymnastic rings. Ever watch the Olympics and see those gymnast? They have arms like Popeye and move like a greased Ninja cat. They are nimble and limber and can scratch the middle of their back with ease. You can’t say that for many of the bodybuilder types. For gymnastic ring workouts and tips, sit back and grab a juice and read more.

You can get one of the best bodyweight workouts by using your gymnastic rings. They are very portable and you can take them anywhere, easily. By using rings you are forced to use more of your stabilizer muscles in the core and abs. For example try a set of pushups. Then try ring pushups. You will feel that the rings want to spread apart and float in space and it takes your core and torsoe working in unison to stabilize your body. This is great for building muscle and coordination and will increase your strength.

CrossFit Ring Workout Tips
A few tips to get ready for the gym ring workouts -

Stretch out your shoulders and upper body with a full range of motion.

Stretching exercises like the swimmers stretch, cow face stretch and arm in front of body stretch will warmup up the muscles and help to get you ready.

Do bench dips or regular dips in your warmup. Never do ring dips as a starter. Always warmup first.
