Going Crazy on Gymnastics RingsDips, in particular, can easily put the joint in a position that can tear your rotator cuff. “You get to a full, extreme end range of motion,” says Mike Reinold, owner of Champion PT and Performance, in Boston. That, he says, compromises your shoulder in multiple places.
Ring chin-ups are a great way to improve grip strength. Unlike the normal chin/pull-up, with a ring you're swinging on a mobile point of contact. ... In addition to stabilizing the body, the ring chin-up can increase the range of motion of our pull at the top of the lift (more range of motion, more muscle activation).
Why Gymnasts Have Big Biceps. Much of the training performed by gymnasts involves working with their own bodyweight, rather than lifting barbells and dumbbells. ... “The straight-arm work is enormously difficult and puts tremendous strain on the biceps resulting in incredible growth.
Push ups are an awesome exercise to add rings to, because the instability of the rings makes them way tougher! As a result, ring push ups will help you get really really strong, fast. To do them, lower your rings so that they're a foot or two off of the ground. The lower the rings, the harder this exercise will be.
Giving yourself about 2.75-3.75 meters (~9-12 feet) of height will work for most everyone. You can go a little lower if you're just working on below the rings exercises, a bit higher if you are working on full inversions. About 1.5 meters (~5 feet) of width around you is best.
