Simple Workout for Strength With Rings?

Recommended Posts

Thomas Lozanovski

I have been training in calisthenics and lifting weights for a while. I can do muscle ups and hold tuck planche for a minute. I recently purchased some rings and want to get into them. I can barely hold support position for 5 seconds. So with that being said

 

Is there a good, intense, simple workout I can do for raw strength with the rings, to get better at them? 

 

How should I get more time in support position, just do it a lot? 

 

Would training planche on the rings help me on the ground/parallettes?

 

How should I go about conditioning my tendons for future iron cross and maltese work? (Long term goals, if not lifetime)

 

I'm sure you see tons of these topics daily, so forgive me. I hope to become a well known user in this community, we all start somewhere. Thank you

Hi Thomas,

 

Step 1: http://www.gymnasticbodies.com/gb-courses/foundation-series/

Step 2: http://www.gymnasticbodies.com/gb-courses/handstand-series/

Step 2.5: http://www.gymnasticbodies.com/gb-courses/stretch-series/

Step 3: http://www.gymnasticbodies.com/gb-courses/rings-series/

 

It's great to hear that you are so eager and interested at such a young age. Patience and consistency will be your strongest attributes if you are to be successful in the world of Gymnastics Strength Training. As such, I highly recommend the GB courses above. Take care of first things first, build a proper foundation of physical preparation, and then you'll be set up for success with harder elements down the road.

 

Best,

Chris

Have a look through the forum, especially Coach's older posts, as to the place of rings in strength training, especially in regards to advanced straight-arm elements :) Good goals, but a plan of attack is necessary to get there. The courses are the best path without a doubt, but the more background you have the better :)

Thank you both for the quick responses, I'll definitely look into the courses in the future once I can afford them.

Thomas,

Check out the GB Online Classes. They are a more affordable introduction to the GB system. I highly recommend that you start training under the guidance of a seasoned coach rather than just winging it on your own (speaking from personal experience).

Best,

Chris

I agree with Chris and Jon.
I'm started following the courses more then a year ago, and that is the best thing you can give to yourself and to your body. I've achieved so many things in this one year- strengthwise and mobilitywise, and learned so much about my self and my abilities.
You should really save up some money and get these courses.
Also, after you are getting enough information on the courses and their content by reading in the site, look over here: https://www.gymnasticbodies.com/forum/topic/12862-the-gymnasticbodies-roadmap-and-curriculum/

Good luck !
