A foundational strength component of gymnastics and a gateway movement to the infamous muscle up. The movement can be performed with a variety of set ups, we review the ring (dynamic) and the straight bars (static). You can scale the movement with a big rubber band on both devices.

The standard on the bottom is shoulder below the elbow and at the top, the elbows are locked with the rings turned out slightly, ideally your body is in a hollow position.

Full range of motion is critical! Enjoy getting stronger:)
