Gymnastic rings are very easy to setup and to help those who are new at it, I made this video so you’ll immediately get the hang of it.
Here’s the synopsis:
- Wooden rings are nicer than plastic rings.
- Choose a sturdy pull up bar, monkey bars at playgrounds, metal railings above balconies or stairs work well, tree branches, etc. The higher up, the better, but if it’s low you could still do tons of things on them.
- Setup Tip: Throw the buckle over twice so the straps won’t move laterally when you’re using them.
- In case you ever need to replace the straps/buckles, they’re called “cam buckles” and 4-5 meters length is good for most places.
- There are only two ways to feed the straps into the buckles. If you think your buckle is defective cause it’s slipping, maybe make sure you’re feeding it the right way (I show both the right and wrong ways.)
- When you need to readjust the height of your rings, make a challenge/game for yourself to do it perfectly even in just ONE pull. You’ll get really good at adjusting them FAST that way without trying to fiddle with it 10x.
