How do I get rings set up in a small space

Recommended Posts

Etta Lindeboom

Hi everyone!

I just purchased the GST starter pack with foundation 1 and handstand 1. I already set up the beginner workout schedule and I'm just looking through all the exercises for preparation. Now, I've noticed that for the Hinge Row RC/PE1 I need rings. 

Right now I'm renting the top floor of a house and I can't just go and install whatever I like. I also have to be careful I don't bring the entire roof down if I do install stuff and work with it. Do any of you have any tips for installing rings? I was thinking about getting one of those doorway pull-up bars and hanging them on there, but I'm not sure that's sturdy enough. I also considered getting a membership in one of those crossfit gyms that already have the equipment, but the whole point of me getting into GST was not ending up with a gym membership. 

If nothing works I will just buy a set and find a playground with a bar that allows them, but that's a last resort. 

Also, if you guys know a way to substitute rings for the Hinge Row exercise, please let me know. 

Thanks in advance for your time

You need a certain height for the attachment point, at least 2.5m, ideally of course 4-5m. If the strap length is insufficient the rings will not be instable, and that is the entire purpose of them... I would suggest hanging them via two hooks from under a balcony if you cannot use the ceiling. For basic stuff such as hinge rows 2.5m is easily sufficient. But for muscle ups you need more, unless you are strong enough to do them in L position all the time :)

The doorway pullup bar will work fine.
