Hi people, I started rings not so long ago and for motivation I use to check for gymnasts performing strength routines on rings. I don't know what you think about the topic, but I realized that my favourite gymnasts on rings are all from China. The difference between Chinese athletes and the rest is super clear: they seek for perfection in their strength positions and the rest just a strong position disregarding the proper technique. I don't know why not everyone seeks for perfect position, it's sad I just saw a national competition in China and I enjoyed it a lot more than any World Championship or Olympic Games... The questions I have for you are: -What do you think about this topic? -Are perfect positions underrated in a rings routine (or not so highly valued by the judges)? -Do ring athletes seek for perfect positions and/but they don't achieve them OR they don't really seek for perfection? -Having a perfect position means that you are stronger? Thanks in advance and big respect for all of you! Oscar
Greetings fellow friends, I have had a lot of discussion about the hollow body shape concerning the pelvis and/or legs. 1. If for example you are hanging from the high bar, you should press your chest inwards to achieve a round back. Now should there be an angle between the legs and the lower back/pelvis, i.e. should there be a small pike? Or should it be completely straight and all the roundness should come from the upper back area? I hope this question is clear :S 2. Also, when I do the hollow body on the floor, should I try to press my lower back so far into the ground, that my glutes lift off the ground? I hope that I articulated myself well enough and you can help me with this problem, Fynn
