Jtv Morganite Rings – Few things inspire people such as the Olympics. Something about all the states competing against one another that brings people together in a manner that few other things do. While the course and field events often garner the most press and excitement, gymnastics has always fascinated me, particularly the Rings. The ability to control your own body suspended above the floor and control yourself illustrates a power that few have mastered and most wish they had. While all the gymnastic disciplines show amazing agility and strength, the rings have always seemed to draw me in.
Few of us have the discipline, attitude, or time to commit to being able to getting that way, much less the coaches or facilities available to us. Employing the tools a gymnast uses helps us and integrating gymnastic rings in to your workouts may bring an entirely new level for your physical conditioning.
While professional gymnastic rings are developed for turning and doing crazy stuff that makes ordinary people gasp and shake their mind, simple gymnastic rings are available for home use. Think back to your own youth you might have even had the metal kind of rings in your playground, you may even still find them at some muscle beach locations or in playgrounds, even though it’s rare. The most common rings today are created from either a high density mix wood or plastic. There are still some made from metal accessible as well, however I will not actually be covering them. Exercise gymnastic rings attach utilizing fairly simple strapping systems that produce the rings pale, portable, and easy to use.
The large benefit to the composite style ring is cost. It is inexpensive to make them and they are extremely durable. Composite rings are lightweight and due to the low price, lead the way as the best method to get into ring coaching. You would be hard pressed to get any good exercise supplier that does not carry a great mix ring collection for an inexpensive price. The largest detractor to mix style rings is grip. Common sense dictates that as plastic becomes wet it get slippery. Exercise leads to sweating (if it doesn’t you are probably doing it wrong) which makes the rings slick. This usually leads to people taping the rings with athletic tape or some thing like that to help increase grip.
Wood rings have been in use since the beginning. Wood eradicates the grip conditions that plague composite rings. As wood becomes wet the grain is raised that provides increased surface area and more grip. The grain from the wood rings additionally holds chalk infinitely better afterward composite allowing for greater grip and less wear and tear on the hands. Wood also only feels better to most people. It look to “break in” over time and normally only works nicely. The trade off for getting the wood rings is cost. Wood rings are more challenging to fabricate and this in turn pushes up the price. Most people don’t start with wood rings but if you’re considering getting serious with ring work then I strongly recommend just getting the wood rings from the start. You will never regret using the wood rings.
The very first time you use rings you may recognize right away that they are extremely fun but harder then you thought. The following day if muscles you didn’t know existed all are yelling at you, then you may suddenly realize how cruel they’re. It always amazes me to watch very powerful men who can crank out weighted dips like nothing put on rings and neglect at doing a pair of 10 drops on the rings. The cause of this is the amount of stabilization that is required to operate on the rings. Ring work incorporates not just the primary muscle being worked out but the myriad of tendons, ligaments, tendons and stabilizer muscles in the body. Rings teach you to sense your body in a totally new way.
Rings also help to prevent overuse injuries that are occasionally plague typical “weight lifting” workouts. Rings allow full range of motion in a number of planes and allow the user to maneuver the way his or her entire body wants to move. In a pull up the hands will naturally turn in on top of the movement removing undue strain from the shoulder joint. The amount of movement will differ person to person.
They rings feel as though they want to just shoot out from under you. Keeping your heart tight comes into focus in an entirely new way.
Fundamental movements on the rings are drops, pull/chin hinges, hinges, L-sits, and pushups. The muscle up is also a great exercise that combines up the pull to dip in 1 movement. You could even get to some other fantastic movements like the cats, skin, inverted push ups (handstands on the rings), ice cream makers, and maybe even an iron cross. A few of the movements have funny names but they are anything but simple. A fast research on YouTube will show you many of these movements.
I’ve found them to be a crucial part of my physical fitness and health and well being, and as one of my customers said, “I love to swing ring to ring if nobody is looking.”
