ok to hang ring straps on 5" beam instead of bar?

Recommended Posts

Tim Koelkebeck

Just started Foundation One. I have 5.5" exposed beams at my ceiling, about 9' from the floor. Would it be ok to hang the straps around the beam, or would that throw off the feel/balance of the rings compared to hanging from something much more narrow like a bar? I feel like the difference wouldn't be that big, but I want to make sure I'm doing this right (small differences could have an impact), and maybe I'm underestimating the effect. I've never used rings before so wouldn't be able to feel the difference from bar-hung straps.

My alternative is drilling some loops into the beam, but I'm renting my place/would rather not do that if it's not necessary.

The difference is in the stability. For Foundation-level training this isn't a problem at all.

Down the track in Rings training it is a variable you can manipulate. Competition rings on swivels are *incredibly* unstable in every direction :)
